Otta's take

Sam Franklin headshot

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

While the realm of online shopping has flourished, eCommerce brands have recognized the enduring value of engaging with shoppers in a physical setting. Addressing this demand head-on, Leap has taken the initiative to craft immersive retail experiences tailored for online brands.

Leap's contribution lies in its ability to swiftly establish brick-and-mortar retail stores for eCommerce brands, all while significantly curbing costs and minimizing associated risks. Collaborating closely with landlords, developers, and property brokers, Leap pinpoints optimal locations within top retail corridors and bustling shopping centers. Beyond this, Leap's integrated platform takes charge of essential elements like staffing and invaluable data insights.

A testament to its success, Leap experienced an astounding fourfold surge in sales during 2021, successfully inaugurating 50 stores across a diverse array of eight markets. This achievement stands as a precursor to the infusion of recent capital, poised to fuel Leap's ongoing expansion efforts.
