What Makes Us, Us

City Hive is creating a world where commerce is universal.

City Hive was founded on the idea that commerce should not be restricted by technological barriers. For far too long, the wine and spirits industry was plagued by technological advancement that was either non-existent or existed only for those businesses with the time and money to spend on marketing, web design, data analytics, and inventory syncing. At City Hive, we tackled that problem head-on with the creation of the revolutionary City Hive u-Commerce platform. A tool designed to help businesses of all sizes, and involved at all levels, of the wine and spirits market take advantage of technological advancements that have long been kept from this industry.
