Helping Local Business Bounce Back
Bounce Plans To Put $3 Million Into Small Businesses’ Pockets By The End Of Summer 2022
We know that the pandemic was difficult for everyone. We also know how hard it was in particular for small businesses. During 2020, one study showed that small businesses in the USA generally only had two weeks of ‘cash in hand,’ and another discovered that almost half (45%) of small businesses were earning less than 50% of their pre-Covid revenue in September 2020.*
At Bounce, we work closely with our small business partners to help them further diversify their revenue streams. We began with luggage storage, branched into package acceptance, and there’s plenty more to come.
But, given the events of the last couple of years, we know that there’s still more we can do. At Bounce, we believe that small businesses are - and should remain - at the heart of our local communities, and we want to do whatever we can to support this.
So, today, we’re really excited to announce the launch of our BounceBack program.
What is it?
The BounceBack program is our pledge to help small businesses “bounce back” as we continue to climb out of the pandemic. Earlier this year we paid out our millionth pandemic dollar to small businesses, but we don’t want to stop there. So, over the next few months, we’re also going to be paying out $3 million to our small business partners.
We’ll also be launching our new BouncePlus™ Program to make sure that our best partners get the recognition and support they deserve.
When will the BounceBack program begin?
It already has! Over the last few weeks, we’ve been working hard to establish all the different ways we can help our partners, increasing our local marketing spend and building new features that allow our partners to diversify the products that they offer.
Who benefits from the BounceBack program?
All Bounce partners can benefit from the BounceBack program! We want every local business we work with to see results from the BounceBack initiative.
“...when my Bounce rep came in to introduce himself to me and see if I would be interested in signing on, my business was struggling. Big time. So I had nothing to lose, Lucas basically taught me the ins and outs of what it would take to work my way up the ladder. Being kind and understanding to the people that would be leaving their possessions to my care and leave them with a sense of security that all would be good upon return. Well, along with that service comes reviews and the better our treatment was the more rave reviews we received, which leads us to today! The revenue we’re receiving these days from Bounce are helping to pay the overhead that keeps my tennis shop running and now thriving. It’s a true luggage storage success story and I owe Lucas and the entire Bounce organization a true debt of gratitude!"

What’s the BouncePlus™ Program?
We particularly want to reward partners who go the extra mile to provide the best Bounce experience possible. That’s why, over the next few months we’ll also paying special attention to our BouncePlus™ Program members.
The BouncePlus™ Program offers weekly payouts to partners, tipping, free signage, a dedicated account manager and a featured presence on the Bounce platform, amongst many other benefits.
"BouncePlus looks to be a promising endeavor. The potential to earn more while exposing customers to our many other luggage services to fit their needs was a plus. I'm looking forward to this partnership with Bounce"
