Millennial-Owned Startup Takes Next Step Towards National Expansion

Local millennial-owned startup Pratt Guys, creator of custom hand-crafted pergolas and outdoor living spaces, today announced the launch of a new website, PrattGuys.com, enabling customers to purchase Pratt Guys products online from anywhere in the United States for the first time. This is the next big step towards expanding nationally for the Pratt Guys on the heels of 608 percent growth in revenue over the last four years, from $289,690 in sales in 2012 to $2,051,718 million in sales in 2015.

Brothers Jason, 34, Derek, 33, and Adam, 26, built the business together, bootstrapping it with hard work and not seeking out investors, keeping Pratt Guys a 100 percent family-owned, local business. In addition to custom design and hand-crafted pergolas and outdoor living spaces, Pratt Guys sell premium grills, appliances and accessories that are American made, such as Bison Coolers, Memphis Wood Fire Grills and Twin Eagles Grills. Now customers will be able to buy these products from Pratt Guys online.

“After we opened our physical Pratt Guys showroom on Philips Highway in April 2015, the next logical step was creating an online showroom for our customers as well, where they can get ideas for their own outdoor living spaces and purchase high-quality products online,” said Jason Pratt, co-owner of Pratt Guys. “Our focus on building the world’s best hand-crafted pergolas and outdoor living spaces has helped us create a high-quality brand that our customers trust, and we expect 2016 to be another great year as we continue to grow to keep up with demand. We’re also developing turnkey Pratt Guys products that will allow us to reach homeowners across the United States who are looking to '#EnjoyEarth’ from their backyard.”

Pratt Guys rebranded in 2013 and competed in the One Spark festival that year to boost their marketing efforts, finishing in sixth place overall out of 610 creator projects. The month after One Spark was Pratt Guys’ largest sales month at that time. Since then, Pratt Guys opened their first customer-facing showroom and shop at 6967 Philips Highway in April 2015. The Pratt Guys Shop boasts 9000 square feet of interior space, including offices, workshops and nearly 2,000 square foot indoor showroom and additional 2,000 square feet of outdoor showroom space, featuring their largest two-tier Pratt Pergola and a fully-furnished outdoor kitchen. Pratt Guys also won the Best Overall Display Award at the Home & Patio Show for the last four years in a row.
