Welcome to the BransonMade Marketplace, a listing of Branson alumni-owned businesses that provide a wide range of services. Due to the Shelter in Place Order, many businesses have had to pivot their regular operations and find innovative ways to continue service. During this challenging time, we've expanded the MarketPlace to include businesses owned by current Branson families. We encourage you to give them your support as an extension of our Branson community.
If you would like to list your business below, please complete this form and we will create your listing in the BransonMade Marketplace within a few days. Over the next few months, we will regularly share this webpage with both our alumni and current parent communities to encourage the support of your businesses.
If you have any questions, please contact Rebecca Hutchinson Houser '92, Director of Alumni Relations at email@example.com.

We are sadly unable to continue providing this karaoke experience during the COVID-19 epidemic but hope to re-open once quarantine is over.
Our family business, Jaguar Karaoke, has been hit hard by the COVID-19 epidemic. We have sadly been forced to close our doors indefinitely since the Shelter-In-Place order began in mid-March but have still been required to pay high operational costs such as expensive Bay Area rent. Without a revenue source, we will have to close Jaguar permanently. We are asking that you please consider helping us during these tough times and would appreciate any support whatsoever. We hope to be able to continue providing a space where you and your friends can create amazing memories from birthdays parties to club socials. Please feel free to reach out about any questions you may have and we look forward to seeing you once we (hopefully) re-open in the future!
We've launched a blog "Yogi's Guide to Public Health" looking at yoga philosophy as a guide to these uncertain times. We have a list of resources for online yoga practice. And we're offering a program to our wholesale partners (yoga studios) to donate a % of our online sales to them.
FaceWest has launched an online shop. If you need any of your favorite products they will ship it to you for free. It’s also a great time to try something new!

We are hand-sewing and selling masks to donate 100% of the proceeds to those affected by COVID19 and organizations dedicated to abolishing systemic racism in America. The organizations we have chosen to support are The Family House of San Francisco, Fresh Lines for Youth (FLY), and Campaign Zero.
It’s always nice to have ICE CREAM as an excuse to ‘do good’, to support a fellow Branson alumna, and to make someone smile during these uncertain times! Here are a few simple ways to support Smitten and treat yourself or someone you love:
Send an Ice Cream Gift Kit as an awesome birthday present, anniversary gift, thank you gift or just because. Smitten now ships fresh-churned ice cream nationwide (yes, throughout the continental U.S.)! — https://shop.smittenicecream.com/
Donate to Smitten's GoFundMe campaign (donations of $50 or more receive a $50 electronic gift card)
Hook Fish Co. at Proof Lab Beer Garden is back! Well sort of. We have a contactless take-out system going for now, orders must be placed online. Orders are ready 15 mins after the order is placed unless otherwise notified, and picked up curbside on a designated table at our side gate. We will continue to follow all County health guidelines and are being beyond careful of how we prepare anything for you. One of the only real upgrades is that you can now buy your favorite draft beers/wines/ciders/kombuchas and bottles to go. We are selling draft beers by single pint up to growlers (4 pints). We can do re-fills (swap outs actually) if you bring back one the growlers we sell, but cannot fill your personal growler at this time. We're going to start answering the phones and doing free local delivery from our retail stores soon as well. More details on the way once we have them. We miss all of you! We hope everyone is healthy and that our whole team can be back taking care of you in our shops as soon as possible.

The coronavirus has affected us all—our health, our social lives, our economy. Nowhere is that more palpable than in hospitals and restaurants. We've got friends and family in both, and their stories are heartbreaking. Healthcare facilities are maxed out, lacking the resources to feed overworked providers. And restaurants—well, if they’re still open, they’re squeaking by on to-go orders. So we had an idea. What if we contributed money to struggling restaurants to pay for meals for overworked healthcare professionals? It’s a win-win: 100% of proceeds go to local restaurants, 100% of their food goes to doctors and nurses. Whether you’re someone who’d like to contribute, or you operate a restaurant that would like to participate, we welcome you to help us help local restaurants help healthcare professionals on the front line of Covid-19—#FeedTheLine.
Bev is on a mission to transform the alcohol industry as we know it: creating a voice for women where there had never truly been one, and doing so in a kind and approachable way. Founded in 2017, Bev is doing it different, doing it better. With three refreshingly crisp, lil’ fizzy, 0g sugar canned wines, Bev is not only changing the drinks in our hands, but changing the culture surrounding drinking and social spaces.
