Qwick Passes $1M Monthly GMV in March
The Qwick team weathered a difficult 2020 that tested the team and forced them to be resilient and scrappy. We’re proud of the way they adapted and found a way to beat 2019’s numbers. The team is on a roll in 2021 and has seen demand snap back dramatically with March eclipsing the $1M monthly GMV mark for the first time. The company is on track to grow the business by 4x this year. Major props to Jamie Baxter and the Qwick team!
