Frank began his voyage in 1989 at the young age of 18. He started his DJ business in his parents basement DJ’ing for numerous events on the weekends while working full time at a local tool and die shop. After a few years Frank was so busy he hired numerous DJ, quit his tool and die gig and did multiple Dj events nightly with his DJ crews. After doing hundreds and hundreds events yearly, in 2001 Frank felt a niche for the tent industry and branched off into the tent business. In 2003 Special Events and Tents was created. He invested in numerous rental items from tents to tables and chairs and introduced other rental items like dance floors and lighting. Throughout them years Frank built a large rental inventory to service any small or large event. By 2020 Special Events and Tents had become so busy that a buyer was found for his DJ company. Since operating both companies would be too much to handle for Frank, Frank began to solely focus strictly on his tent company employing 15 staff members. Later that same year TJ (Franks son) began to work full time for the company and learn the industry, as well as Franks daughter Marlena, offering her marketing assistance to our entire team.
TJ has this business in his blood. After TJ graduated from the Electrical program he tried his luck as an electrician. After a few years his heart was with the family business and later that year TJ joined the family business. For the past 5 years TJ has learned the tent business and offered top notch ideas to better our setup times and allow all our tent crews turn key solutions for each and every tent setup. TJ takes care of organizing and managing all the weekly setups, site visits and maintaining all our professional tent crews.
Marlena received her Bachelor of Science and her MBA from the University of Windsor. Marlena is employed by a large E-Commerce company and offers her expertise to the Special Events team on a weekly basis. Marlena offers exciting new and innovative ways for the future of our rental business. Marlena was born into this company and with her brother TJ they will be the faces of the company for years to come.
