Harssh Chedda, Founder & CEO of Corporate Collars, realized that it is not just ice cream trucks or food vendors, mobile businesses can grow to encompass an eclectic mix of business activities and customers.
Corporate Collars is one such undertaking that implements putting inventory on wheels to reach more people.

I wanted the flexibility to go out into the community and find business, instead of hoping and praying people would discover me. The future of mobile retail is going to be very diverse. It is an out-of-the-box approach to discover potential and interested clients or customers that can also make up for a viable start-up model.”
