Our Story


It all started when a college student needed a place to store his stuff, and realized it wasn’t easy to find, compare and reserve storage online…

That was our Founder/CEO Chuck Gordon in 2008. He was about to leave U.C.L.A. to study abroad in Singapore, but couldn’t find an affordable storage unit in time. He ended up storing his stuff at his best friend (and future Co-Founder/CSO) Mario Feghali’s house.

When Chuck returned to L.A., he and Mario originated the business plan that would become SpareFoot. They graduated and headed to Austin, TX to grow SpareFoot into a service that helps customers locate storage and owners fill their vacant units.  

Today, we’re a team of smart, fun, friendly, expert people in downtown Austin. We call ourselves SpareFeet, and our “work hard, play hard” office culture is legendary.

Fun facts:

  • The Austin Business Journal named SpareFoot the #1 Best Place To Work In Central Texas
  • We’ve donated free storage units to victims of natural disasters such as Hurricane Sandy, the Oklahoma City tornados and the floods in Colorado
  • SpareFoot brought home the gold in the Austin Startup Games, an Olympic-style event for tech companies, to win a total of $20,500 for Kure It Cancer Research
  • You can enjoy a game of shuffleboard, ping pong, Pop-A-Shot, darts or Foosball in our office
  • We throw some wild storage parties at industry trade shows, especially in our home state of Texas with the TSSA
