Female-founded Austin startups Inn Cahoots and BOXT give back to Austinites with free hot showers during Austin water crisis.
AUSTIN, TX, FEBRUARY 20, 2021 – Inn Cahoots and BOXT are joining forces to help Austinites in need of a hot shower and some cheer this week.
As communities around Austin deal with ongoing power outages and lack of running water, two local businesses, Inn Cahoots and BOXT, are coming together to offer hot showers and a relaxing glass of wine to help ease the stress and pressure of this past week.
Inn Cahoots, a hybrid hotel and Airbnb space in East Austin, is letting anyone who needs it sign up for a time slot to shower, use its kitchen and more, for free.
BOXT, the Austin startup and fine wine disrupter that puts their fine wine in a BOXT and delivers it to your door, wants to give back in whatever way they can.
“We have hot water, which means we have hot showers, which I know is something everyone wants right now and they can just come in,” says Kristn Carson, founder of Inn Cahoots.
The showers and other amenities are cleaned after each use and BOXT is helping to pay for that cleaning. The two women have teamed up before, and Puil has used Inn Cahoots for her company retreats and private wine tastings.
“We make wine, but we still want to help any way we can, so helping pay for the staff to clean after each shower is one of the ways we can give back right now,” said Sarah Puil, founder and CEO of BOXT.

ABOUT INN CAHOOTS
Designed as a hybrid of a hotel and an Airbnb, Inn Cahoots has the space to accommodate large groups of people, whether that’s a bachelorette party, a corporate retreat, or a family reunion, all while maintaining a homey feel. The unique layout consists of five condo-style units that each have five bedrooms, a living room, and a kitchen space. The idea behind the layout was flexibility. Everything is completely modifiable, from the furniture set up to the unit combinations. Each unit is also separated by a divider that can be opened up, transforming the hotel into one spacious venue.
Born in Austin, and crafted at their winery in Napa, BOXT is a female-founded, venture-backed, fine wine disrupter revolutionizing the way we all think about and drink wine at home, inspired by the simplicity and deliciousness of European and South American house wines.
Their mission is to be your go-to house wine, on tap and always ready, as much or as little as you like, one glass at a time. They put their wine in a BOXT because it’s better for the environment – less carbon, wine and recycling waste – and you get the equivalent of four bottles in each BOXT.
They make their wine based on taste expectations rather than varietal and deliver wine to your door that you know you’re going to love, every single time.
