ABOUT 850zip

850zip was born to create stronger neighborhoods and communities by magnifying the importance every individual makes on the economic vitality and social infrastructure of society.

Midtown Phoenix has been home to our founder and her family since 1999, they first moved to Arizona in 1994. Our vision is to create a community of intentionally-minded humans who promote local economic empowerment and build stronger community connections.

Our Inspiration: The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” -Gandhi

Best For The World 2019

For the second year in a row, 850zip has received the high international honors of being named  “Best for the World” by the Certified B Corporation! We have received accolades for both “Best for the World: Community” and “Best for the World: Overall” categories (over 1,800 companies in more than 50 countries).

Hear some of the stories of positive impact from the very organizations and businesses we serve below. To date, over 675 community members and 150 local businesses have joined 850zip, providing nearly 200 local deals and ongoing community events for people to engage and invest in the 850-zip code area. And we’re just getting started!

We invite you to be part of this movement with us. Your investment of time and resources can truly change the world!

But, What Does This Mean?

Being a B Corp is an intentional decision to make a difference in the world yet still be a for-profit business.  As a service-driven company we’re committed to creating positive social impact for the power good. Learn more about our B Corp status and the Best for the World scoring process here. We believe when our local businesses succeed, we all win!


Certified B Corporations are companies that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose.
