Boxed was started by Chieh Huang, Christopher Cheung, and Jared Yaman. They were formerly game designers for Zynga. Zynga is a gaming studio. They are responsible for popular game apps such as, OMGPOP, and Draw Me Something. Huang, Cheung, and Yaman were actually the team behind Astro Ape Studios, a mobile game company. They sold it to Zynga is 2011.
They since formed a team of nine developers, and created Boxed. The original idea was to bring the $25 billion club-shopping market to mobile phones. They centered their concept around the fact that as big as the warehouse club industry was, a lot of people don't have access to it. This includes, college kids, people living in cities, or people in remote areas.
Ironically enough, Huang and his team knew nothing about commerce, bulk buying, shipping, or warehouses and inventory before they started this company. But, they obviously knew all the ins and outs about mobile gaming. They binge learned the warehouse industry, and joined it with their master knowledge of app design. The joined forces have created the future of warehouse shopping, and it will continue to take this industry to a whole new level.
