Sweets to the Suites: Bulfinch Partners with Godiva To Deliver Perks That Today’s Tenants Value

NEEDHAM, MA – February 15, 2016 – Having a thoughtful gift in hand for your Valentine on Valentine’s Day can be a challenge, with our busy schedules, traffic-filled commutes and long office hours.  This year, Bulfinch sought to ease the holiday pressure for tenants in Bulfinch properties in the Newton/Needham area with a Godiva chocolate Pop-Up Shop at the Cutler Lake Corporate Center at 117 Kendrick Street in Needham, Massachusetts.

The Godiva Pop-Up Shop brought a wide assortment of chocolate gift boxes just minutes from employees’ desks.  The shop not only saved employees time, but also saved them money with a special Godiva discount provided as part of the new Bulfinch Tenant Advantage Program lead by Bulfinch Advantage Services, LLC. Unique services like this, and convenient amenities, are exactly the kind of perks today’s tenants demand, and it’s a focus that Bulfinch understands and delivers.

“Our tenants were so appreciative of the ease of shopping and taking another task off their mind." said Francesca Austin, Tenant Relations Manager at Bulfinch. “Being able to simplify our tenants’ day while saving them time and money was a win/win. Tenants greatly appreciate unique perks like the Godiva Pop-Up Shop, and these amenities in turn increase tenant satisfaction."

Jasminder Kaur, an employee of Verastem at 117 Kendrick visited the Godiva Pop-Up Shop, “This tenant event was great and created a real buzz in our office," Kaur said.  “It was extremely convenient saving me a trip outside of work hours, and I ended up with a great gift."

The new Bulfinch Tenant Advantage Program, launched earlier this year, provides added value for Bulfinch tenants’ businesses and their employees.  Through the Bulfinch Tenant Advantage Program, any employee working in a Bulfinch-owned building can take advantage of Bulfinch-negotiated discounts on a wide variety of products and business and personal services provided by Preferred Providers like Godiva.  More than just chocolate at Valentine’s Day, the Bulfinch Tenant Advantage Program offers special pricing for business services as employees move in or enhance their offices, and also provides discounts for everyday conveniences, such as lunch and dry cleaning. Other Preferred Providers include Staples, Boston Sports Club, Landry’s Bicycles, Besito Mexican, Elements Massage, and many more.

"We hope that our tenants benefit from these unique services and see the value that Bulfinch can bring as a Landlord as they think about their space options." said Bulfinch’s Director of Marketing, Tina Snyder. “Our goal is to create a positive tenant experience that differentiates Bulfinch, and creates long-term tenants while attracting new ones.
