BBOXX Shop Gets Ready for Business

Time for an update: BBOXX has been hard at work over the past two weeks, getting everything ready to produce, market and sell our first batch of 1000 units of the BB5. We've now received pre-orders for over 400 battery boxes at the Rwandan Expo, have generated extensive interest from distributors within Rwanda and around the East African region and have the team and facilities set-up to assemble and distribute the boxes over the coming months.

BBOXX's shop will be opening tomorrow (Wednesday 8th September) at our location on Avenue de la Justice in Muhima, Kigali. The shop will also comprise the assembly/production and storage area for the BB5 products, whilst giving distributors a convenient location to collect our products for sale around the country. Keep following the blog over the coming days to see how the shop opening went.

With the opening of the shop our initial business trip will be coming to an end, as BBOXX's UK based partners will be leaving the country on Thursday, returning to the UK to plan the future of the business and investigate potential new markets and products. We plan to return regularly over the coming months to ensure the business is progressing as we've planned.

The hard work doesn't stop here though; BBOXX's Rwandan team are now fully up to speed with all the aspects of the business and as of this Thursday, they will be the main contact point for BBOXX in Rwanda. They'll be working on finishing the production of the boxes (a 20ft shipping container is arriving on Monday with the remaining products), selling the boxes to distributors and individuals and most importantly, getting feedback on the reaction to this exciting new product.

In summary, these are exciting times for the business - the initial response to our product has been great and over the coming months we'll be keeping you updated on the blog with our progress and exciting plans for the future; stay tuned!
