Subscription boxes have become an increasingly popular way for consumers to discover new products/companies as well as receiving higher priced items at a substantial discount.
America’s Crate is a monthly subscription service that delivers only Made in the USA products to its subscribers each month. The unboxing video of their preview box has been viewed over half a million times on Facebook. We caught up with Dan, one of the founders of the club, to learn more.
How did you guys get started?
We’ve been running a Facebook page called America Hell Yeah for a couple of years now. As we surged to over a million fans we kept hearing from people who were interested in buying American products and business owners who were interested in getting their Made in the USA products in front of more people. An American made subscription box just made sense.
Why “Made in the USA” products?
We strongly believe in American manufacturing. Advances in manufacturing technology, especially at the small scale and good old fashion ingenuity have led to American made products being able to compete with cheaper production costs in other countries once again. We believe we’re entering a new golden age of American manufacturing that is controlled by smaller companies making better products than ever.
Why a subscription box?
By just focusing on a few products each month we’re able to keep the cost of goods and overhead lower which means subscribers will get more value in each box and we can introduce subscribers to more products/companies over the course of their subscription.
What kinds of products can people expect to get?
In addition to Made in the USA products, we also want the products themselves to reflect life in this country. Subscribers can expect items that will help them enjoy the outdoors, make their daily lives easier, and a variety of other items such as drinking accessories, BBQ accessories, books covering American history, the military, and American life. We have also secured some amazing deals with American companies for our subscribers.
Besides American made products, what other benefits are there to subscribers?
We aren’t just sending out a box of random products each month. We will be telling the stories of these companies and products with every box we send out. We want people to learn who is behind the company and what they stand for. It’s our hope that subscribers will eventually learn about dozens, or hundreds, of American companies making amazing products.
