Welcome Wagon is the world’s largest welcoming service to new homeowners, providing a variety of products to help our partners build their businesses. Each year Community Marketing Executives partner with local businesses to help introduce themselves to millions of new homeowners. This serves the dual purpose of helping new residents learn about their community and helping businesses achieve their marketing goals.
Welcome Wagon was founded in 1928 by an insightful marketing man in Memphis, Tennessee. Thomas Briggs was inspired by stories of early Conestoga “welcome wagons” that would meet and greet westward travelers, providing fresh food and water for the journey. He created Welcome Wagon to embody this same spirit of warm hospitality and welcome. He hired women who were friendly and knowledgeable about their neighborhood to personally deliver baskets of gifts supplied by local businesses to new homeowners. This hostess network expanded across the country until, aside from Briggs and a handful of males, Welcome Wagon became one of the first all-woman companies in the US.
An Exciting Present – A Limitless Future
Although the day of door-to-door visits are a thing of the past, Welcome Wagon is still committed to connecting with new homeowners through their mailboxes and the internet. Our mode of delivery may be different, but our mission is still the same: Welcome families to their new homes by providing them with the names and numbers of local businesses and services that we believe will benefit them as they settle into their new homes
