The ever-present struggle that is creating and or putting together any type of company and along with just about anything and everything about finding a physical space for people to work. From a transactional side, most of us have that down. Actually most of the brokers, owners, developers know all too well what it takes to get people situated, plugged in and productive.
One of the of not the biggest hassles/must-do things all CEO’s encounter is getting the space that will be occupied planned out and furnished. Usually, this is not some little task that is pushed off as a side project. It’s always near the top of the list of projects or what happens? Chaos! I’m in and around the C-Suite level of companies all the time and ALL of those people are looking for a solution to that problem, probably because they are providing that same level of solution and or service to pay for the bricks and mortar in the first place.
So, where is that simple solution to planning, design, furnishing and, ultimately setting up your next office?
It’s Branch, premium office furniture sold direct to save you time and money. Installation, space design, and flexibility included.
It’s the simple, flexible and affordable way for growing companies to furnish their workspace.
They sell a curated line of high-quality furniture—desks and chairs, conference tables, lounge furniture, and accessories. They handle everything from space design to delivery and installation. As you grow or move, add furniture, update your space plan, or trade-in used furniture for credit.
I said they do it all, space planning, furniture, delivery, and assembly, all in one simple package and with just one price and, no hidden fees.
Can it be that simple and affordable? Yes, it can.
Take a look at some of the pieces from the Branch collection of contract-grade essentials backed by a ten-year warranty.
YOU NEED TO BUILD YOUR BUSINESS, NOT FURNITURE.
Zero assembly required. Branch handles it all from concept to furnished: space design, delivery, and installation.
YOU CAN ADAPT AS YOU GROW.
Update your space plan, add new furniture or trade-in used furniture in a click as your team grows.
SAVE TIME AND MONEY.
Buying direct saves you time and money without sacrificing quality. Again they have NO markups or hidden fees.
WHY THE BASIC PRICING?
Cutting out middlemen, maintaining a lean line of modular inventory and adding flexibility helps Branch save you up to 50% compared to premium office furniture of comparable quality. Space planning, installation, and trade-in included.
From internal logistics tools to external space planning and office manager tools, they are building technology to make life easier across the furniture lifecycle, with so much more to come…
Traditional Furniture Dealer: Materials & Manufacturer + Manufacturer Mark Up + Dealer Mark-Up + Delivery, Assembly & Disposal + Unadvertised Additional Fees.
Big brands (Herman Miller, Steelcase, etc.) force you to buy through middleman furniture dealers who add huge markups, then tack on additional fees for delivery and assembly. The result is offices furnished for anywhere from $20-$35 PSF.
The result: outfitting an employee with a full workstation from Branch often costs as much as just getting a chair from some traditional furniture brands. Branch’s approach allows them to charge anywhere from $9-$15 PSF, inclusive of white-glove assembly.
HOW DOES THIS HELP LANDLORDS?
More and more landlords indicate interest in pre-furnishing their portfolios. They see what Knotel, WeWork, etc. have done, and are realizing that they’re leaving huge amounts of incremental rent on the table. Now that they have the ability to pre-furnish their portfolio.
HOW DOES THIS HELP BROKERS?
Because brokers are the gatekeepers for most clients’ decisions, they interact with furniture companies far more often than they’d like to. When the furniture procurement process becomes a headache for their client because of cost, complexity or timing, it often becomes a headache for the broker too. The simplicity of Branch’s offering has turned out to be a huge benefit for brokers.
IS BRANCH GLOBAL?
They are now delivering across the country. In the past few months, they have furnished offices in NYC, LA, SF, DC, Chicago, Boston, Nashville, and more. They will be launching in Canada in Q1.
YES TO BRICKS & MORTAR.
Showroom in Flatiron District of Manhattan, 45 W 28th Street 9 AM-6 PM Eastern Time, Monday – Friday. Additional showrooms to launch in SF, LA, Toronto, and Boston in 2020.
