MEET THE FOUNDER
The Smart Grocery and Parcel Safe will have a tremendous impact on the shift to on-line shopping. It provides a secure, temperature controlled safe to protect your incoming and outgoing packages. Imagine the ability to receive medication, groceries, prepared meals, and so much more at home and have the peace of mind that it is all protected and secured. We will not have the dreaded "missed you" stickers on our doors, or have to take time off of work or away from our families to be sure to be home to sign for package deliveries, or to receive groceries, or even prepared food deliveries, or to drive to a postal center, wait in long lines to mail out packages.
The Smart Grocery and Parcel Safe will also make a tremendous impact on our planet. Delivery trucks will no longer need to drive around empty, on their way back to their centers. They will be dropping off and picking up packages, decreasing the amount of gas which is currently being consumed, as well as the amount of emissions released into our environment. Having a temperature controlled, safe place to protect your parcels from inclement weather, there will be less need to use all of the packing material which is currently adding to the eroding of our environment. Recyclable bags can be used much more often, instead. Imagine no longer having a large box to open, only to find an over abundance of packing material, and then a smaller cardboard box inside which you open to find more packing material, and to finally find the item you ordered, leaving you with boxes and material for you to break down in hopes of properly recycling. Not only will this make such a positive difference to our environment, but it will also decrease customer cost, for not having to include in the cost of the item, the cost of shipping and handling, of all of this material and multiple trips to attempt to deliver.
I am also excited about the vision to help all those who may have a difficult time to travel to a grocery store, or pharmacy or other stores. When I had worked in home health, I saw first hand the desperation for our disabled and elderly to not be able to drive, and to have to be dependent on others for things that so many of us take for granted, like picking up our medication or groceries.

I came up with the idea for the Smart Grocery and Parcel Safe one day when, as a business owner, I had mailed merchandise to a customer, and a few days later, the customer complained that she had not received the items. Customer satisfaction and retaining customers are my priority, so of course, I immediately took more merchandise off my shelf and shipped a second package, all at my cost. About a week later, my business received a request for a refund, for those exact same items, which I did refund, in full. It concerned me that perhaps there was something wrong with the items, so I contacted the customer and she said that she had not requested a refund at all. That is when I realized the tremendous loss to business owners, from the Porch Pirate stealing packages, and then returning them for a full refund. Not only did I lose the entire sale, plus shipping, twice, for having to replace the stolen items, but I also lost two times that amount for having to provide a refund to the Porch Pirate. Shortly after this time, I viewed a posting on Facebook, of a porch pirate stealing Christmas packages off of a person's porch. They had multiple video cameras which they thought would protect them, but all they ended up with is a high quality video of the thief ruining their Christmas. It broke my heart to see that and to imagine how those parents had to explain to their children that their Christmas gifts were stolen by a porch pirate. That is when I decided to find a solution.
