Winchester, VA (PRWEB) August 22, 2012
Celebrating its first year in business, Harvest Hall Coupon Company ( harvesthall.com) is a tiny basement-bound technology company that is bringing life to an unusual plan.
Known for their airy ideas and shoestring budgets, technology startups have long been a key ingredient to the world's modern marvels. In addition to launching an innovative new web service, Harvest Hall is also seeking to innovate the technology startup model by, in a choice that might seem counter-productive, becoming less technical.
According to Harvest Hall's quirky 26 year old tech-background CEO and founder Chase Adams, Harvest Hall's plan often draws quisitive looks. "When we were looking for a way to enter the consumer deal brokering market, what we found was a lot of smart non-technical people looking for a way to be enabled by technology. As opposed to viewing them as competitors, why not be friends?" Chase continued, "The consumer deal brokering market, dominated by Groupon and Livingsocial, is still growing fast and there is a ton of room to innovate. We are sidestepping the market's momentum toward becoming top-heavy and instead focusing on grassroots."
Chase has spent countless hours crafting a plan that aims to employ people in their own communities across the country in lieu of using technology. "My vision since the beginning was to create something that works around the conventions that are already in a community versus replacing them. Other companies have proven that deal brokering is effective, but I want something even better. I want to see communities of small businesses banding together to take on the big boxes. I want to see owner-operators working on their own vision, focusing on quality products and service."
Harvest Hall's focus on small towns is uncommon in the technology space, but Chase aims to prove that it is an underserved market. "One fifth of America's population is truly rural, and another healthy percentage is in small towns across the country. The people in these areas want advancement just as much as the people from the cities or suburbs, but historically they are the last in line to be offered new technology. In addition to providing a great service, we are also innovating a new channel to reach these people."
Harvest Hall ( harvesthall.com) is located on the outskirts of Winchester, VA, a beautiful example of an American small town nestled in the Shenandoah Valley. Harvest Hall offers consumers up to 50% cashback on purchases at local small businesses while offering businesses a way to keep customers coming back. Using Winchester as a prototype to develop its model, Harvest Hall plans to launch nationwide, starting from the center. If Harvest Hall's goals come to fruition, one new local job will be created in most small cities across the country and small retail businesses will have access to a cutting edge technology that keeps their customers coming back.
