Do Cool Stuff That Helps Local Businesses Succeed!
Here’s who we are, the spirit that moves us, what we’re crushing, and why it matters. But let’s start with where YOU fit in…
YOU are the most important part of Hownd. Every day YOU save local businesses. And the ripple effect of that impact is felt in the lives of each business owner, their employees, their communities, and their families.
What determines whether you succeed or fail is grit, a special blend of passion and perseverance directed at accomplishing long-term goals. Great teams gain their strength and resilience while toiling their way through the valleys, not just from relishing the view from the peaks.
We believe in the dream of business ownership. More so, we believe it’s our responsibility to make it a lot easier for business owners to create predictable revenue and sustainable foot traffic. In doing so, our hope is to create “good problems” for the amazing merchants that we serve.
Local businesses are the bedrock of every community but, sadly, more than half will fail over their first five years. We will change this by connecting the right consumer to the right merchant at the right time. We will create and command the category of effortless foot traffic for local business owners worldwide. In doing so, it’s our desire to see the building of businesses, the creation of jobs, and the flourishing of the local communities in which we serve.
Our Espirit de Corps
Get Shit Done
When something needs doing, you do it — ASAP. You have a bias for action. You pick up the phone. You dump the trash. You solve the problem. You go the extra mile to make sure a task is completed in a timely manner. Despite setbacks, you always rise to the occasion and never settle for mediocrity.
Efficient & Innovative
You believe there are always new and better ways to do things. You’re constantly looking for ways to improve what you do and how you do it — from process improvements to system enhancements to time and task management. You find ways to simplify and do more with less and then you make the change.
Earn the Trust of Others
You’re a person of your word. You don’t gossip. You speak truth and exhibit humility. When you say something, you do it and people know they can trust you to get it done. You listen attentively, speak candidly, and treat others with respect.
Relentless Pursuit of Excellence
You never give up or settle for mediocrity. You wake up each day asking yourself how you can improve personally and professionally and then you take actionable steps forward daily. You always seek to deliver the best in every task or project for customers or the team and you don’t quit until the mission is accomplished.
Do the Right Thing At All Costs
We’re all human beings and treat each other with honor; offering and accepting constructive feedback or sincere praise and holding yourself and each other to a high level of integrity in all things. You ensure that mistakes or defects do not get sent down the line and that problems are fixed and stay fixed.
Devoted to Everyone's Success
We’re all part of a team and you know that it takes each person to succeed and that we all need help from time to time. You’re a team player and never think ‘that’s not my job’ when asked to pitch in. The success of the team, personally and professionally, and our customers are your highest priorities.
Achievement is Fucking Awesome
You’re hungry, goal-driven, and love the feeling of accomplishment and winning with the team. You believe there’s nothing better than not only meeting a goal but beating it into oblivion. You’re all about crushing big goals, earning big rewards, and having fun doing it!
You are, and will always be, the most important part of our organization. We will always strive to do the right thing at all costs. You’ll be treated with respect, recognized for your contributions, and have a direct impact on local businesses and communities around the world. Hownd is, and always will be, devoted to your success.
We will strive to be the best friend your business has ever had. We’ll be in the trenches and fight by your side to see your dream of business ownership be as full and rewarding as possible. We’ll build, strengthen, and continue to improve our solutions by leveraging your partnership and feedback. We will work diligently to create good problems for your business!
Without our Hownd Consumer Community, there would be no Hownd. We will work diligently to be your best resource to connect with the merchants of Fun, Yum and Zen in your local area or when you are on the road. Your privacy will always be our top priority. We will be a leader in data protection and not just meet privacy standards but exceed them.
Where We Work
Hownd, is based in the thriving economy of Tempe, Arizona. Wondering “Where the heck is Tempe?” We’re pretty close to the campus of Arizona State University, which is the largest university in the U.S. And we’re really close to Phoenix which is the 5th largest city in the U.S. and the fastest growing.
You’re always welcome to come visit and meet us in person. We’re happy to share some of our endless supply of M&M’s and snack bar goodness with you.
