Jason commented on Reefill: Ditch bottled water for good

Hi Kate,

At this time we have a pilot network and are just starting to compile those stats. But we are gearing up to add 90 more locations at the end of the year as we close on financing and from there we aim to expand rapidly. The technology (app, backend, and reefill stations) can scale easily to any market but we need additional staff to sign on host businesses and coordinate installation and maintenance in each area.

Let me know if that does not answer your questions!

Hi Andrew,
Great question, and one of our first steps was to confirm that host locations would be interested. We set up a pilot network around the Village last year and found businesses to be generally supportive and eager to take part. In just this small area we had 13 businesses sign an agreement for a station in their store. The coffee shops and juice bars often focus on sustainability and are excited about the increase in foot traffic as they look to convert eco-conscious Reefill users into new customers.

Hi Nan,
Thanks! WaterStop Carts sounds like a great idea as well and we would love to connect to discuss ways to collaborate! Shoot us an email if you are interested: hello at reefill dot com.
