Synergy Partners with Montana Based All Natural Snacks Company, Yellowstone Foods

In support of small business, the strategic partnership delivers locally sourced and sustainable options to welcome business travelers.

San Ramon, CA, January 9, 2024 — Synergy Global Housing (Synergy), a serviced accommodation program management leader, announced a strategic partnership with Yellowstone Foods to distribute its all-natural snacks to guests across California with plans to expand to other US locations. Blending the rich history of Montana’s natural and local ingredients with rustic flavors, Yellowstone’s snacks are sustainably produced, adventure-infused snacks.

“Partnering with Yellowstone Foods is a natural fit because we believe it’s the little things—like providing a delicious and eco-conscious chocolate chip cookie from Big Sky Country—that impact the guest experience the most,” said Debra Christopher, President of Synergy. “When people travel for over 20 hours across continents and arrive to their corporate apartment after dark, we want them to feel the thought and care we put in to welcome them.”

Yellowstone Foods, a home-grown small business that launched 2 years ago in Butte, Montana, is known for crafting delicious snacks and prioritizing sustainability in every aspect of its operations. The company utilizes compostable packaging, actively reduces waste by donating excess products to local Montana shelters and food banks, and sources ingredients locally to minimize its carbon footprint.

“We are excited to bring our natural snacks to Synergy’s guests and create a unique welcome experience that we believe complements and fuels the adventurous spirit of business travel and relocation,” said Steve Guggenheimer, Co-Founder of Yellowstone Foods. “Having spent a lot of time in my career on the road, I recognize the value of a great tasting, natural snack waiting on arrival in a new city or location. The Synergy and Yellowstone Foods partnership is that welcomed surprise when travelers least expect it.”

After a successful pilot program returned rave reviews, Synergy will roll out Yellowstone Foods’ signature snacks to its guests, starting in California with some of Yellowstone Foods’ best-selling products, including the Cherry Chocolate Chip Cookie and Hazelnut Espresso Bar. Beyond that, Synergy plans to offer the snacks at its other US-based locations in the near future. Synergy guests also receive a 15 percent discount on their first Yellowstone Foods order via a QR code printed on the guest’s welcome card that outlines and tells the story of the two companies’ unique and inspired partnership.

“We believe that the feel of the product and the ethos of Yellowstone Foods perfectly match the preferences of our guests. It’s more than just snacks; it’s an experience and a brand ethos that aligns with our commitment to small business, local experiences and sustainability,” added Christopher.

The Yellowstone Foods partnership is integral to Synergy’s broader sustainability initiatives and its commitment to be carbon neutral by 2030. From the company’s updated travel policies to removing plastics, reducing its reliance on paper, flexible work arrangements and eliminating food waste to its broader industry sustainability stewardship, Synergy is using science-based targets to enact a more environmentally conscious approach to business. Synergy is determined to contribute to the collective education and behaviors that better our environment through the products, services and measurements it employs.

After months of applications, cover letters, and interviews, you’ve overcome the biggest hurdle: receiving an internship. Whether it’s short- or long-term, part- or full-time, this is a victory that should be celebrated. And with this new role, comes a new destination. Moving for an internship is more than just changing locations; it's a transformative experience that shapes your professional and personal growth. Relocating for an internship is an exciting yet challenging adventure. To ensure a smooth transition, we’ve crafted this detailed guide to help interns like you make the most out of their relocation experience. From temporary housing options to maximizing your internship program, here’s what you can expect and how to thrive during your time away from home. Moving for an internship is more than just changing locations; it’s a transformative experience that shapes your professional and personal growth. Out-of-state internships offer the opportunity to develop more than just hard skills. In addition to the knowledge and exposure you’re destined to gain throughout your internship, relocation invites endless chances to evolve and challenge yourself as an individual. You’ll not only grow as a professional, but also gain soft skills that will last you a lifetime. However, all these benefits do not necessarily make this journey any less daunting. Embracing the Internship Journey As you acclimate to your new role and your new home, you will inevitably be presented with various obstacles. To best prepare for your internship journey and alleviate some of the growing pains that accompany moving to a new city, it’s vital to research your destination. Embracing the Internship Journey When relocating to a different city or state, it’s important to educate yourself on travel safety tips and immerse yourself in the cultural nuances of the location. With a comprehensive knowledge of your new home away from home, you’ll have a strong foundation to explore and build authentic connections. Do your best to break out of your shell and engage with your neighbors and fellow interns. If you’re accepting summer internships or winter internships, look into joining local groups or pursuing activities that offer an opportunity to socialize and make new friends. It’s essential to establish a support network so that you have a community to lean on if you ever start to feel homesick or during your program. While adapting to your new living and work environment may prove difficult, you are not alone in your journey. Many of your peers and colleagues are likely experiencing similar anxieties, and your employers will be able to sympathize with the strength that it takes to overcome your apprehensions as you take on a new job away from home. Maximizing Your Internship Program with Temporary Housing Preparing for your internship can be an overwhelming experience on its own, so your housing should be the least of your worries. Temporary housing plays a crucial role in ensuring a comfortable and productive internship experience. Corporate housing companies like Synergy Global Housing help eliminate the added stress of finding a new apartment. Instead of signing a lease, you’ll have a guest service agent guide you through every step of the process and help you find the perfect housing solution. Simply share your desired destination, and Synergy will take care of the rest. Maximizing Your Internship Program with Temporary Housing For short-term living or extended stays, temporary housing proves to be the easiest, stress-free option. Award-winning customer service and abundant amenities contribute to a resort-like experience that enhances your overall well-being. Apartments are move-in ready, with all the comforts of home: installed utilities, fully furnished living spaces, housewares and linens. Synergy helps you to relocate with confidence, so that all you must do is show up and turn the key in the lock. Relocation Assistance Internship relocation assistance from providers like Synergy helps you make the most of your experience. Discover a comfortable and convenient living space that complements your lifestyle and includes everything from free wi-fi to on-premises laundry. During fall internships or spring internships, avoid having to compete with students for leases and housing and enjoy the guarantee of a move-in ready, premium property. And the best part? You can rest assured that your new home will be secure and held to the highest standards of quality assurance, without having to fly out early to find a place on your own. Peace of Mind The only thing better than the peace of mind provided by corporate housing, is the unique opportunities offered to interns sharing the same housing. By opting for corporate housing, you may experience more of a dorm-like atmosphere. Sharing common areas or even neighboring your colleagues and peers makes it much easier to socialize and make friends in your program. Plus, many companies utilize the common areas of corporate housing for social events, so you’ll be that much closer for the next pool party, barbecue, or networking reception! peace of mind provided by corporate housing Preparing to Relocate for an Internship
