Offer grocery stocking services to your guests with Noshable (Ep 606)

Ep 605

In this episode of “Get Paid for Your Pad,” I, Jasper Ribbers, welcomed Connor Paton, CEO and founder of Noshable, to discuss his innovative company that's enhancing the Airbnb experience. Noshable's service allows guests to pre-order groceries and have them ready in their Airbnb rental upon arrival. This service tackles a common inconvenience for travelers: arriving at a rental with no basic necessities like food and water.

Connor shared the journey behind Noshable. The idea stemmed from personal experiences of inconvenience when arriving at unfamiliar destinations and the time-consuming process of grocery shopping. This led to the development of a platform where guests could effortlessly have their groceries delivered and stocked before they arrive. Connor’s background in property management and prop tech, including his time at Realpha, played a crucial role in realizing the need for such a service.

The process with Noshable is integrated into the Airbnb booking experience. Guests receive a link to pre-order groceries from a selection of over 20 major retail grocery stores, with the ability to order up to a year in advance. This integration ensures a seamless and hassle-free experience for both guests and property managers.

Noshable is in its early stages, having recently completed beta testing in several states. Connor discussed the technical and operational aspects of Noshable, including their focus on standardizing operations to ensure consistency across locations. The company aims to expand to more areas, currently active in markets with Walmart, Kroger, and affiliate stores.

For property managers, Noshable presents a cost-effective and potentially profitable solution. The platform is free for property managers, with a share of the markup on groceries and the ability to set their own delivery fees. This model provides an additional revenue stream and enhances service offerings.
Connor emphasized the importance of removing friction in hospitality, drawing inspiration from companies like Disney. Noshable’s service addresses the basic needs of food and accommodation, enhancing the vacation experience from the moment guests arrive.

Further discussing future developments, Connor mentioned plans to integrate with property management systems, introduce an AI shopper for efficient grocery ordering, facilitate group orders, and expand to restaurant partnerships for dining experiences. These features aim to streamline the ordering process and expand the scope of services offered by Noshable.

For more information, Connor directed listeners to the Noshable website, shopnoshable.com
, and offered his contact for inquiries and collaborations via email (connor@shopnoshable.com) or LinkedIn.
This episode underlines Noshable's commitment to redefining hospitality in the Airbnb space by focusing on providing comprehensive services that address the core needs of guests.

Jasper Ribbers (00:00.601)
What's up everybody. Welcome back to Get Paid for Your Pad. My guest today is Connor Payton. He is the CEO and founder of Notable, a very new company that can help you, or help your guests pre-order groceries and have them stacked in the fridge once they arrived, which sounds like a great service because, you know, one, that's a big challenge when you arrive in an Airbnb and it's like, you don't have water, you don't have food. And you're like, oh, where's the, where's the nearest grocery store?

So I'm excited to dive into it. Cornel, welcome to the show.

Connor Paton (00:32.886)
Yeah, Jasper, thanks for having me. I'm super excited to talk a little about the short-term rental space and how noshful fits into that puzzle piece.

Jasper Ribbers (00:40.277)
Yeah, yeah, I'm excited too. I actually, like I mentioned to you before we started recording, I actually did not do a lot of research on your business. So I'm really excited to, as somebody who doesn't know anything about it, to find out what exactly you have to offer. Yeah, let's start with the founder story. What is Notable and why did you find this company?

Connor Paton (01:01.802)
Yeah, so obviously I think.

As you said, it's something we can all attest to of getting into an area, whether you're with family and friends and you're hangry or hungry and you're looking for food and a couple of things happen. Sometimes it works out and there's a grocery store nearby. Oftentimes you're not familiar with the layout and you spend a lot longer in that grocery store than you would at home though. The second thing that can happen is the grocery store is closed, you get in late and you're hungry and you have to eat out or you just don't have food and you go to bed and then kind of that third thing that sometimes happens is you have to go the very next morning instead of going to that main attraction, whether it's

it's the beach or skiing, whatever you prefer. You're stuck in a grocery store or you're sending out a crew to go do that. So that's something that me and my two co-founders have all faced ourselves and it's something that we wanted to be able to solve because right now there are solutions out there but they're not really focused particularly on the whole experience of a short-term rental. They're kind of subpar solutions such as Instacart or trying to order grocery pickup and having to deal with the pickup and plan it around your own travel. So it's something we'd all experienced

And then I just had a background in prop tech and property management at a company called Realpha beforehand. So it was something I was passionate about and it's like, why isn't the rent solution, let's do something about it.

Jasper Ribbers (02:15.873)
Yeah, 100%. Awesome. Why don't you describe the process, right? So imagine I just booked an Airbnb. In fact, I did actually book an Airbnb. OK, so I'm going to check in on a Tuesday at 3 PM PST. There's no supermarket nearby. And I want to make sure that there's dinner for us to cook. I want to make sure there's some drinks. What's the process for me to leverage Notchable to accomplish that?

Connor Paton (02:45.066)
Yeah, so the unique thing about Noshable is it's ingrained in the booking process. Um, and so this doesn't really matter how far in advance you book it, as long as it's a year or less in advance. So you could have booked this trip, let's say theoretically six months ago. As you go ahead and book that, you see that this is a property that suits your needs. You book it. And then in that automated booking response from the host, they've included a link, um, as well as like a sentence or two explaining what Noshable is. Um, it says something along the lines of pre-order groceries to have stocked in your fridge, as well as other goods, such as sunscreen, beach towel.

They click on that custom link and that link is tied directly to that address that the property you're staying in. They can go through and shop at one of over 20 plus major retail grocery stores such as Kroger, Harris Teeter, Walmart, et cetera. You just basically build a curbside pickup order is what it feels like, at least for the guest experience. As a guest, you're not going to have to lift a finger besides ordering it though. That's taken care of. You go ahead, you fill up stuff you want for dinner, throw a case of beer in there, bottle

like and you go ahead and check out and pay. From your end, it's mostly done from there. Let's go with the analogy that this was six months in advance. Then as it starts to get closer, we'll message you.

Hey, these are a couple of substitutions. The one kind of benefit slash downside to allowing people to order that far in advance is items may change in grocery stores. So if it was seasonal and there's apple cider, because it's fall, but you're not going until, you know, the summer, we're obviously not going to have to tell you that's a substitution and you'll be refunded accordingly. And then you go ahead and you're arriving under trip that week of, and from the guest perspective, you just walk in and it's pre-stocked. Obviously those groceries don't fly in there magically.

Jasper Ribbers (04:11.261)
Thanks for watching!

Connor Paton (04:28.564)
management companies that want to offer more than just a space. They want to offer an actual experience. So there's this thing called Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs. And the most fundamental, just basic needs are food, water, shelter, and rest. And it's funny because in the hospitality business, you think you'd cover all those, but oftentimes a lot of companies are just missing the chance to nail something on the head and offer that food and water, allowing people to kind of really be satisfied to start off their trip.

companies and we onboard either their current operations, which is usually a cleaning company or even sometimes themselves for smaller hosts. And they can set the amenity price, which is just the delivery fee. And they're the ones who are actually going and picking up the groceries. The way we're integrated with it's just a curbside pickup. So all they have to do is go to the store, say they're picking up for not shabble amenity.

and then they go stock those as they clean the fridge. Alternatively, if they're busy or they're understaffed and they don't have someone to do that, we do have partners in over 12 states now and are kind of constantly brokering more and we can put them in touch with someone who was able to act as that trust fulfillment alone without even being kind of the person who's meant to clean the property.

Jasper Ribbers (05:32.613)

Jasper Ribbers (05:39.493)
So as a host, there's really two ways that I can leverage the platform. I could leverage for my own properties, but I could also say like, hey, you know what? I wanna be one of those partners and make some extra money by offering, by allowing other property management companies and Airbnb hosts in my area to use your service and I'll take care of the fulfillment. Is that right?

Connor Paton (06:03.05)
Yeah, that would work if you have your own kind of internal cleaning organization set up, or you feel like you have something that would meet our criteria, then you could certainly, not only onboard your own properties, but do neighboring properties as well to make some extra cash. So we partner with a lot of cleaning companies already. It's a great way to do that. Since they get to set the amenity, they can make sure it's something that's beneficial for the guests, as well as, you know, they're compensated accordingly. So you can definitely do that.

Jasper Ribbers (06:29.873)
So let's say I sign up as a host in one of the states that you currently have the fulfillment in place. I will then send a link in my booking confirmation. I will send a link to my guest, like, hey, click on this link and you can order pre-order groceries. They'll be ready for you waiting in the fridge. Does the guest then have to sign up for an account?

Connor Paton (06:54.526)
Yep. So the way it currently works is there's no account needed to sign up when they first get on so they can build a cart.

Jasper Ribbers (07:02.173)

Connor Paton (07:02.258)
It'll automatically, each link is tied to an address, as I said, so that auto-populates and it shows the grocery store that's closest to the shop from. And they can build a cart and then at the point that they want to check out, they are forced to make an account just so that we have contact with them. We are holding their payment information, that kind of stuff. So just from regulation reasons and stuff, it's safest for us to have some of their information to stay in contact with them. But they're able to fully try out the amenities, see what groceries are available at the store nearby without ever having to sign up.

Jasper Ribbers (07:25.894)

Connor Paton (07:31.893)
up or sign in.

Jasper Ribbers (07:33.849)
Right. And then would I be able to use the same cart on different stays?

Connor Paton (07:41.502)
Yeah. So the way it works is we split each day into different carts. So while you have an account, like let's say you plan a trip to go to Florida a week from now, and then you're going to Hawaii two weeks from now, you would have the name of each kind of cart based off of the property. So it's called Florida one, two, three is one of the property's names and the other ones, Hawaii, like five Oh, you would be able to toggle between carts and add items. So if you're in the Hawaii five Oh cart and you wanted to add Coca-Cola.

you added that and then you toggle back over to the Florida cart, you wouldn't see Coca-Cola in there. So you can manage multiple carts for different dates at the same time within your account.

Jasper Ribbers (08:17.137)
Mm-hmm. Gotcha. Yeah. Now what I'm thinking is I pretty much need the same stuff every time I go check into an Airbnb. So I was wondering, can I just create a standard cart and then just say, hey, whenever I go on a trip, I always want to order this particular cart.

Connor Paton (08:34.682)
Yeah, so that's actually on our roadmap right now. Currently, you can see cart history so you could see what you ordered at your last trip. And you would have to go in and manually reorder those things, unfortunately. But that is one of the kind of future updates we're looking to kind of finish here by the end of 2023. So that and then group ordering is another big thing we're looking towards allowing you to basically send.

Jasper Ribbers (08:41.085)

Jasper Ribbers (08:50.861)
Yeah, got it. Okay.

Connor Paton (08:58.37)
a link where you wouldn't have to sign in to several other people who might be staying in the same property as you to add items to the cart as well.

Jasper Ribbers (09:05.889)
Mm-hmm. Is there no challenge with, when it comes to alcohol, because I know when I order groceries, if there's like a bottle of wine in there, I always have to sign because it's alcohol. Like, is there any challenges with that?

Connor Paton (09:19.126)
Yes, obviously alcohol is a big kind of lift and it's different not only in every state but individual municipalities. So that's something we deal with appropriately in each area. But as far as trusted fulfillment goes, when you're actually the one picking up the alcohol, you do have to be 21 and we make sure that all those people are verified in 21 when they're picking up alcohol on behalf of another guest.

Jasper Ribbers (09:37.919)

Right. Yeah, that makes sense. So how many, you guys are pretty new, right? How long ago did you guys launch the company?

Connor Paton (09:49.822)
Yeah. So we basically just kind of finished building our MVP, which is just minimal viable product. It means like kind of a functional prototype. And I've been beta testing it in a couple of states. Um, just in the last month, we finished that up. We really just started building, um, in the last two and a half months, um, I brought on.

a co-founder who was non-technical at the start of this summer, so in June, and then we really just started kicking it off in August by bringing on our third and final co-founder, Evan, who was a senior developer at Kroger for about 10 years, and he's our technical co-founder building the product.

Jasper Ribbers (10:24.457)
Mm hmm. Got it. And how many how many hosts or do you have any data that you can share of like, how many carts have been ordered or how many hosts are on the platform just to get an idea of like, you know how far in the in the journey you guys are?

Connor Paton (10:40.298)
Yeah, so we're fairly new right now. We have a pretty large wait list, but we're trying to set up SOPs, so standard operating procedures. We want someone who orders in Florida and Hawaii to have the same experience. And obviously that's something that's hard to manage if you're using different cleaning teams and all these different people who are actually the operations on the ground. So we're beta testing in a few different states. So one of our partners is Portoro out of Austin, Texas. And so we're working with Dustin

Jasper Ribbers (10:54.392)

Connor Paton (11:10.192)
his team there and they have about 50 properties there. So we're doing that. We also have a couple closer to home in Cincinnati and Kentucky as well as Tennessee. So we're starting small and then we're gonna start expanding to our wait lists as we start kind of creating those SOPs and really confident that this is something that will run smoothly in new states.

Jasper Ribbers (11:31.105)
Right. OK. So for the hosts that are listening right now, can you name maybe the markets that you're active in currently so that everybody knows which locations you're active?

Connor Paton (11:45.63)
Yeah, so right now we can basically work in any market that has a Walmart, Kroger, any Kroger affiliate company if they have their own operations. So if they were interested in doing that and they didn't need us to provide trusted fulfillment, we could do that anywhere there's a Walmart, Kroger or Kroger affiliate.

And then we're also in the process right now of getting up HEB down in Texas, as well as Publix in Florida. And then if they did not have the trust and fulfillment, we're available in a lot of different states. So we're in Chicago, Arizona, Texas, a few, like a lot of the 12 total, don't have them all off the top of my head. And then we're currently working on Florida, as well as Utah.

Jasper Ribbers (12:28.965)
Got it. Okay. So if, if I'm a, if I'm a host and I take care of the own fulfillment and I basically get to keep, do I upsell the groceries or do I just make money on the fee, the stocking fee, if you will.

Connor Paton (12:44.286)
Yeah, so that's a great question. So the way that we decided to build this product is unique, coming from a property management background myself. One of the biggest struggles is all these different SaaS companies trying to sell property managers into their tech stack and you're paying 50, 20, $30 a property.

for this software and they start to add up very quickly. So we wanted this to be something that was extremely accessible for property managers and hosts. So it's not something that we actually charge them for. It's completely free to utilize our software. And in exchange, we mark up the groceries, an aggregate amount that can vary.

depending on the state. And on top of that, we actually share a portion of that markup with the property manager based on a couple of different things. So obviously, like the occupancy rate of their property as well as how many properties they have. So not only is it completely free, you can make it so that it's profitable from a delivery standpoint. If you do the delivery yourself, you get kind of a portion of that bonus revenue as well. And then kind of the last added benefit is for those ambitious property managers that want to add other people's second homes

their portfolio, it's great for second home acquisition because as the property manager yourself you can eat the delivery fee of whatever you happen to set it to, let's say it's $25, and then whenever someone stays in their own home you give them free grocery delivery. And even at that point you're still making a little bit of money on the markup. So it's a great way to kind of expand your business as well if that's something you're looking to do.

Jasper Ribbers (14:13.033)
Okay, yeah, that's very interesting. So you built this company because you were experiencing this issue as a property manager or more from the guest perspective?

Connor Paton (14:27.986)
I'd say a little bit of both. I think it's pretty clear to a lot of people that there's been a lot of saturation as far as Airbnbs. Back in the day, Airbnbs just started as a blow up mattress in someone's living room and people were paying for it and that was working. Now that property managers have started to come in and try and take more market segment.

the quality and the standards have been set so high that people are starting to turn towards amenities and other offerings outside of just is the property clean, how many bedrooms does it have? You know, you're seeing these crazy

Backyards getting built by companies like tech faster and a bunch of other property management companies And so I realized from the guest perspective guests really care most about convenience and just Grocery shopping takes two hours of your vacation and well, it's great to have pickleball in your backyard most guests Groceries are a staple in almost every guest trip, right? And so that was something that we thought a lot of people had kind of brushed over and passed over and they attempt to differentiate themselves And then of course I did

experience it myself and realize I was always grocery shopping to start my trip.

Jasper Ribbers (15:30.137)
Mm-hmm. Right. Yeah. So one question that comes to mind is, look, if I, let's say I book a trip to somewhere and there's a Walmart nearby, I could also just go on the Walmart website and order the groceries to the house, right? Why would I, why would I use Notable versus just doing a direct order?

Connor Paton (15:53.17)
Yeah, there's a couple of reasons. So the first is with Walmart in particular, depending on the area, the maximum you can order is three weeks in advance. So if you're trying to book this month in advance and you just want it to be out of sight, out of mind, then you're going to have to go back and remember to order those groceries after you booked your trip potentially months earlier. Another thing is you're going to have to pick up those Walmart groceries. So you're either need a rental car. You have to pick a one hour slot for Walmart pickup still.

So if you have travel delays or if you don't get into the next morning, you're supposed to pick it up that evening. Again, you're still facing that issue of having to reschedule that time and go pick it up, and even if you had Walmart deliver it to the property yourself, you'd have to be there or they would just leave it at your front door.

and those could go to waste as well. So it's one of those things where we really are the kind of this connector piece between the grocery store, the property management team, and the guests, allowing for them to be pre-stocked and really hands off process where, you know, no matter what happens, if you have a three hour travel delay, you know, or you experience anything like that, even if you just want to have the freedom to decide to stop and spend the night somewhere on your way there on a road trip, you know that those groceries are preserved. So that's the major advantage.

Jasper Ribbers (16:37.215)

Jasper Ribbers (17:03.274)
Right. And it saves the hassle of having to put everything in the fridge too. Right. It's like when you walk into an Airbnb, it's like, you want to chill, you want to relax, I mean, there's nothing better than just tossing your bag in the corner, opening the fridge, popping over, popping open a cold ball of beer or wine and sit down and enjoy the start of your vacation, right? The least amount of friction, the better.

Connor Paton (17:07.498)
Yeah, yeah, that too.

Connor Paton (17:28.446)
Yep, exactly. And that's a big thing we talk about. So one of our board members was the former CEO of Walt Disney World. And something that they really focused on is removing frictions, hassles, barriers. And this is a great way to do that. Like the last thing you want is a hangry family fighting. First thing they do when they walk into your Airbnb, you want it to be a memorable moment. And obviously no one's going to match Disney and their level of magic. But even just having that grocery stock, having those cold beers ready

Connor Paton (17:58.32)
vacation and makes them want to come back.

Jasper Ribbers (18:02.834)
Yeah. I want to share a quick thing I read in a book today. So I've been reading a book called setting the table, uh, which is basically it's a hospitality. It's from the, it's about somebody who started a restaurant, very famous restaurant, but, um, but essentially it talks about hospitality and this book, as we talked about it on the podcast with, with Eric a couple of weeks ago, but

Connor Paton (18:25.379)

Jasper Ribbers (18:27.205)
One really funny story is like this guy starts a restaurant and he's really focused on providing a higher level experience, right? And there's this customer that he knows booked a table and he's pretty sure that there's like one out of five wine bottles that he has that the person is going to choose that wine, right? So he's like, you know what, let me take these five bottles out of the fridge so that they're just like perfect temperature.

when the guest arrives, right? Instead of the standard temperature that's in the fridge, like, you know, let's take it out. So it drops a couple of minutes of a couple of degrees. And so the guest arrives, right? And he orders a different bottle.

So the guy's like, oh no, now the bottle is going to be too cold. Right? So he like, he grabs the bottle out of the fridge and he kind of, you know, rubs it over his body to kind of warm it up a little bit. And then, you know, the bottle goes to the table and then five minutes later, like the server comes up to him and says like, Hey, this customer asked for, wants a different bottle, the same wine, but different bottle. He said it was too warm.

Connor Paton (19:44.606)
Yep. Yeah. No, it is. It's like, you really don't know. It's hard to guess exactly what the customers are going to want and your guests are going to want. That's.

Jasper Ribbers (19:44.91)
I thought that was really funny.

Connor Paton (19:53.442)
Um, I actually caught that podcast. I was listening to you and Eric talk and mentioned unreasonable hospitality too. Um, and that kind of sparked interest in me as well. Cause, um, the definition according to Oxford dictionary of hospitality is providing a guest, um, food, drink and accommodation, and all these people are in the hospitality industry, but most of them are just providing a space and they're not covering the food or the drink.

Jasper Ribbers (20:17.486)

Connor Paton (20:19.006)
So this is a great opportunity, you know, and why we wanted to build a hospital to really transform what hospitality looks like as this area starts to get very saturated.

Jasper Ribbers (20:27.681)
Yeah, yeah, 100%. So we've talked about the process. We talked about how Nusrable works. I'm sure there's a couple things that we haven't talked about yet that might be good for you to share. Anything come to mind?

Connor Paton (20:41.424)
I mean, yeah, so obviously we're.

currently looking for beta testers and stuff like that. But there are a lot of features we're looking to add in the meantime. So depending on which property management systems you use, we're currently integrating with a couple right now. So that's like one of our big goals early 2024 is going to be allowing people to streamline those work orders, whether it's like GuestGear, Breezeway or HostFully, whoever you use, we're looking to start integrating with companies like that so that if you do decide to do the pickup in-house,

It's kind of already done through our process as the guest orders and just kind of populates as a work order So it's not something that you have to manage on your own. So that's one big thing. We're really working towards Another big thing that we're working on is adding an AI shopper Allowing you to input recipes and just other context and have to do all the shopping for you So it might be planning say a Thanksgiving trip to Florida. You could say you want a Thanksgiving meal with mashed potatoes broccoli

et cetera for eight people and having it add the ingredients based off of a recipe into your cart. So we're really trying to kind of streamline the ordering process as well as by leveraging AI. So there are a couple of cool things like that we've been working on that we're hoping to have out in early 2024. The product right now, if you do decide to sign up for a demo or just are interested in Reach Out, is at its kind of most bare minimum and we have a lot of exciting routes we want to take in.

Jasper Ribbers (22:12.885)
By the way, my camera just died, so Connor can't see me anymore, but he did a great job at discontinuing talking, talking about technology. So the AI is interesting, right? I feel like there's any platform that launches these days, that there's always an AI component to it, right? So I find that really interesting. So it's like you tell.

You tell Noshable, like, hey, I, you know, this is the type of dinner I want. And then Noshable will like suggest certain ingredients and certain products.

Connor Paton (22:49.002)
Yep, exactly. And not only suggest it, but it'll actually input it into your cart if you'd like. So instead of having to search all those ingredients and go ahead and add the correct amount.

Jasper Ribbers (22:54.13)

Connor Paton (22:58.194)
It'll be able to do that and then you can just go manage your cart from there. So that's another exciting thing. And then something else I hit on a little bit earlier, but not fully in depth is the ability to do group orders and basically only have one person sign up and pay for a cart. But send out a link where you don't have to sign up to other guests in the party, allowing them to create their own carts. And then that cart can then get approved by the person who has an account, allowing you to easily kind of split up the payment.

Jasper Ribbers (23:02.491)

Connor Paton (23:27.908)
to me is I go ahead and we grocery shop, we send out that party and somehow I always get, you know, put in charge of driving to the grocery store with someone and doing all the shopping on behalf of everyone else. And then I spend $400 and I'm looking at this receipt trying to figure out who owes me what and somehow I always come up short of what I spent. So this is a great way to make sure you can hold your friends and family accountable and that they pay you back as well. So that's one I'm particularly excited about.

Jasper Ribbers (23:47.291)

Jasper Ribbers (23:55.129)
Well, that's a big benefit for anybody traveling in a group because I definitely hear you. I've been there myself as well. You do all the groceries, like first of all, you're putting in all the work of getting the groceries and then you have to chase everybody down to pay you back.

Connor Paton (24:13.362)
Yep, exactly. So those are some of the big things we're working on. And then down the road, we're helping to start also partnering with local restaurants and helping guests get not only the food in the fridge when they arrive, but reservations and stuff pre booked as well. And that's another way for potential like revenue generation for hosts themselves too. So we're looking to kind of occupy that whole food space and just make sure that people have those basic needs of food and space.

Jasper Ribbers (24:36.313)
That's cool.

Jasper Ribbers (24:40.157)
Yeah, that's awesome. I, you know, if there was a, if there was a thing on Airbnb or something where you could kind of select like your favorite cuisines and then, and then just tell the air, the host who you're staying with, like, Hey, you know, here's free cuisines that I like, just book me your favorite restaurants at 6 PM, right? You pick whatever you recommend. I'd totally be down to do that instead of, cause that's a, that's a lot of time and effort goes into finding.

restaurants as well, right? Looking at Yelp and reading reviews and looking at the photos to see if it's, if it looks nice, there's a lot of time that goes into it.

Connor Paton (25:14.982)

Jasper Ribbers (25:23.809)
Yeah. Amazing. All right. So for everybody who is interested to learn more about Notable, you can go to the website shopnotable and I'll spell it. So it's a shop as in H-O-P and then it's N-O-S-H-A-B-L-E.com. No dashes, no, no nothing. Just one word shop notable. Do I even pronounce it correctly by the way?

Connor Paton (25:48.598)

Jasper Ribbers (26:00.701)
Oh, OK. info.shopnotionable.com. Awesome. Sweet dude. Well, I appreciate you jumping on here. I always admire all the innovators coming into the space and solving the problems for the guests and the hosts, especially if it involves turning the mindset from renting out a space into providing more hospitality, providing more

So definitely appreciate that. Any final thoughts before we wrap up the podcast? Can people reach out to you if they have any questions?

Connor Paton (26:39.262)

So I'm happy to talk with anyone, whether they're interested in the service themselves or if they just think there might be synergies or have questions and are trying to build something. I always love to co-create and talk with other entrepreneurs.

Jasper Ribbers (27:03.436)

Connor Paton (27:11.774)
