Overview of The Stand-Alone
AirWater PlugHubs Business Model
PlugHUBS Inc. (PlugHUBS) is a California corporation being structured as a future public company and
a stand-alone division of Integrated Ventures. It will develop, build and operate a membership-based network of fully staffed, franchise-like charging centers for electric automobile and recreational vehicle, plus hydrogen cell powered vehicle owners within North America and the Hawaiian Islands.
AirWater PlugHUBS are designed to become
the pioneer of the single source charging
solution for a growing electric vehicle market,
incorporating the atmospheric water making
services of Integrated Ventures, HumidaPure
AirWater Company (AirWater), hence the
AirWater PlugHUBS brand name.
Members will pay a low monthly fee to obtain
unlimited rapid charging regardless of where
they may travel for their electric or hydrogen
cell vehicles, with the help of onsite staff,
regardless of vehicle cable requirements.
Members may also fill their personal containers with fresh AirWater made onsite from outside humidity, or purchase new containers or pre-filled water products. They can enjoy a slice of specialty made pizza onsite or pre-packaged food items, take home a pizza, enjoy an exclusive KaffeeLua Maui grown coffee product or visit the restaurant next door while waiting or take home some beans.
AirWater PlugHUBS has partnered with the Aquarium Restaurant Group (AQRG), an APVG company, and will incorporate one of its food and beverage brands on larger PlugHUB parcels, and grow alongside them (as shown for a targeted site in California above). This includes either an Aquarium Grill & Bistro full service restaurant or a Tropical Reef Travel Cafe (Travel Cafe), an over-the-counter food
concept. Both will offer indoor/outdoor seating and a drive through service.
Look For A PlugHUB Coming In Early 2021
Our initial PlugHUBS will be located along the highways between Las Vegas and up and down the State of California, Arizona and Utah by the end of 2021, and by 2022 we plan to be on all of the Hawaiian islands. No firm locations have yet been secured.
PlugHUBS are designed to replace the many gas stations that now exist in all cities, which sit on just under an acre of well located land. The design rendering above represents an average single AirWater PlugHUB site, and sits on .68 acres lot (200' x 150' = 30,000 SF).
PlugHUBS has developed an exclusive Location Partnership Agreement, similar to a =small business franchise concept, whereby interested operators can acquire a PlugHUB Management & Revenue Sharing Partnership Agreement (Partner or Agreement) for a $125,000 location fee, of which $75,000 will be refundable over 36 months.
Like a franchisee, interested Partners may deposit $25,000 to secure its first potential site within a
city or region, plus $15,000 for each additional site up to ten maximum. PlugHUBS will then buy or lease the potential property, build out the location at its expense, and then share in the revenues of that location with the Partner who will manage them under our terms and conditions.
Beginning in the 7th month of operation (from opening date), the Partner will receive $2,500 per
month as a fee rebate, and each month thereafter until all $75,000 of the refundable portion of the fee has been recovered. Once fully recovered, the Partner will continue to share in the revenues, provided they continue to operate the location(s) directly. They may also sell their Agreement for up to $75,000 per location through PlugHUBS, which reserves the right to acquire or terminate any Partner Agreement for just cause.
PlugHUBS believes that having vested manager Partners in each location will lead to better member experiences, services and insurances of brand continuity. To gauge whether this structure appeals to the consumers, PlugHUBS will launch a FundRazr crowdfunding campaign for $500,000 or more to build a base of potential site Partners.
Stay tuned for more details as we launch its own website and FundRazr campaign in early December.
