I’m excited to say that we’re moving the headquarters to a bigger and better location this Thursday.
This all began out of my parents attic, with the business I started when I was 17. Soon my Dad allowed me to move into his shop and occupy a small corner. Next my Wife and I moved houses…2 hours away… which meant a super tiny downgrade to my In-laws garage.
Luckily some family friends soon offered their single car garage…which the company outgrew before I even moved in.
Next my Father-in-law connected me with someone who had a series of empty buildings…in the ghetto. The cashier right next door had been shot in the head a year earlier; it was freaky at night. The owner wanted me there just so the crooks who were breaking in and stripping out the pipes for copper would know it was occupied and hopefully stop. It was huge, and free (except for the exchange of labor) so I accepted.
After about 9 months on South 9th I was finally able to afford an 800 sq ft shop for $220 a month (and went up to $400 over the next year). We started to grow and soon took a neighboring space as well…which was two doors down. This means constantly walking back and forth between the office and the warehouse.
After 8 years: we’re bursting at the seams. It’s time to upgrade.
