BlackTravelBox is celebrating their 4th Anniversary, which commemorates four challenging and fantastic years in business. This is a huge milestone for the Denver CO-based beauty business, which has provided clean hair and skin care to Black travelers since 2017.
BlackTravelBox got its start when founder Orion Brown realized Black travelers spend over $109.6 Billion annually on travel and Black women spend nine times more on hair care and beauty products than all other ethnic groups, yet there were no products on the market made for them as avid beauty consumers and avid travelers.
One of the earliest, and ongoing, challenges BlackTravelBox faced was finding a culturally competent production partner and financing the necessary inventory to service a burgeoning beauty brand.
While every business of course faces challenges, some, like BlackTravelBox are fortunate enough to enjoy real successes, wins and victories too. Once such victory came when Beyonce featured the brand on her Black Parade website last year.
Orion Brown, Founder & CEO at BlackTravelBox was also quoted when discussing another big win. “One of the high points of BlackTravelBox’s history so far was being accepted into Macy’s Workshop and Target’s Forward Founder accelerator which gives us unprecedented access and mentorship in retail.”
BlackTravelBox’s Founder, Orion Brown says “We’re delighted to be celebrating our four year anniversary. I believe the secret to getting this far in business today is to really see your consumer…by understanding her and putting her first we’ve completely changed the game in beauty and travel”.
The BlackTravelBox team currently consists of less than ten employees and has big plans for the upcoming year. One of their core objectives is to relaunch the brand post covid and take advantage of some major retail opportunities.
BlackTravelBox would also like to thank friends, customers and all its partners for their well wishes on this happy occasion.
