About Us

Together, Local Strong

Born in Crisis:

Spring 2020.  Overnight the world changed.  A pandemic, lockdowns, everything closed.  As small businesses struggled, we watched the heart of our communities flounder.  Feeling a bit overwhelmed, we asked - how can we help?  Motivated by a concern for the businesses we love, we mixed a touch of creativity with a bunch of experience, and a way forward emerged – BabbleBuy.

Built for the future:

We help small, local businesses grow with our free Marketing app.  BabbleBuy instantly shares the Buzz with existing customers and attracts new ones.  By enabling in-app messaging, curbside pickup, directions, etc, we help the Biz grow again.  Customers can explore their neighborhoods, share, support their favorite places, and help their main streets grow again. 

Our Heart:

  • Be simple

  • Build community

  • Be FREE!

Team

We’ve been around a bit.  In well-known brands, Fortune 100 companies and baby start-ups, we’ve lived through lots of business challenges.  And we have some pretty varied experience from simple stuff like answering phones and shipping packages to complex things like building technology solutions and creating business strategy.  We know success requires a lot of hard work, and we hope BabbleBuy can make it easier for you to achieve. 

Babbler – in – Chief

Lisa Albani - The Pandemic was raging and my favorite shops were struggling.  I knew I had to do something, so I rang up my friend and colleague of many years, David Raycroft.  "Let's get to work my Friend".  See, I knew David's technical chops would blend well with my experience with branding, operations , supply chain and finance, having done it with both big and small companies like Williams-Sonoma, Ross Stores and my own candy business.  I knew we could come up with something to help small businesses, and thus BabbleBuy was born.

David Raycroft - Lisa could not have called at a better time.  I had been dabbling away in my "Laboratory" working on a solution for my favorite comic shop.  Ecommerce was not really an option for them as their assortment was based on offering one of a kind items.  I wanted to create a digital solution that could help bridge the gap between small businesses and the online community.  Checking with my friends at the store I said "I will make something easy to use."  They Said, "Make it fun".  And now we have BabbleBuy

Wonder Team activated and building with passion, skills and experience!  We're happy to bring BabbleBuy to small businesses.
