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, and friendly people in downtown Austin. We call ourselves SpareFeet, and our “work hard, play hard” office culture is legendary.
