Who we are.

HOOCH was founded in 2015 in the heart of NYC with the simple goal to build a community based around shared experiences. In the years since, our team — and the passionate members that drive us — has expanded the world over, and the journey is just beginning.

We want to help you explore the world, take in new experiences and taste new things, all the while saving a few bucks and getting rewarded for doing it.
