What began as a weekend retreat has quickly flourished into a successful livelihood and global lifestyle brand for Beekman 1802, a Time Warner Cable Business Class customer. Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge – better known as the “Beekman Boys” – created Beekman 1802, a thriving e-commerce business and retail storefront in Sharon Springs, NY.
In their own words, Kilmer-Purcell and Ridge share their story on how Time Warner Cable Business Class provides the technology that helped Beekman 1802 grow from a modest start-up to a popular international brand.
Powered by Time Warner Cable Business Class 10 Mbps high speed Internet and reliable, unlimited nationwide Phone service, Beekman 1802 seamlessly streams live video from the store and handles hundreds of customer orders daily.
Beekman 1802’s entrepreneurial business model allows them to collaborate with local artisans to craft their high quality goods, which are then sold online, in their mercantile, and through partnerships with major retailers like Anthropologie, Williams-Sonoma, Whole Foods and Disney.
”One of the best advantages of Time Warner Cable Business Class is the speed,” says Kilmer-Purcell. ”We’re in a rural area, but when you’re running a business, you can’t just mosey along. You have to be as fast as a business on the main street in New York City.”
