Our Story

Our Mission

We champion your local business. We believe in your positive impact on the community. We connect you with modern consumers, simplify your operations, and grow your word of mouth.

Broadly was founded in 2013 by engineers, Josh Melick and Assaf Arkin, while living in Oakland. After years of watching his father’s roofing business struggle to find an effective, simple and affordable solution to market itself, Josh recognized a need in the local business community. The duo set out to find an impactful way for businesses to engage with today’s consumers.
