In the recent years subscription services have been on the rise, you can have razors, cosmetics, clothes, and food delivered right to your door on a monthly basis. Now, a new subscription service called Pijon is aimed to give parents peace of mind when their kids enter college.
Pijon delivers a care package every month to college students. Each package contains five or six products aimed to keep the student “happy and healthy.” Items include beauty products, healthy snacks, and useful accessories. The subscription costs between $25 to $29 per month depending on the length of the subscription.
In an interview with TechCrunch, Rob Caucci the co-founder and CEO of Pijon, commented that:
About 4 months ago we made the decision to re-envision our future around the mission of keeping college students happy and healthy while enabling families to stay connected. We believed there was an opportunity to provide care givers with a direct sales channel that would allow them to send their long-distance dependents the non-perishable grocery products and ‘essentials’ they consume each month.
