The Mobile Locker Co

Q: How did you get started on The Mobile Locker Co?

As a runner I was experiencing a need for a more secure, more convenient option for my valuables and gear at road races. Scratching my own itch, I launched the service with a focus solely on running events in New England.

Utilizing my connections with other runners and syncing up with event organizers, we tested the concept for 8 months with a locker trailer before bringing the trucks on the road and rebranding as The Mobile Locker Co.

The initial launch with the locker trailer was self-funded from my personal savings. This allowed us to test our systems with minimal overhead and also gather real world feedback on the concept. Luckily, it was well received and we were able to secure funding to get our first two trucks on the road from personal connections through my two initial sweat-equity partners.

I consider myself very fortunate because I was in a position where I could leave my job and focus full-time on the business with support I had from my then-boyfriend/now-husband. Without the freedom to make the jump, I don’t believe I would have been able to do what I’ve done with TMLC.

Before taking the big leap, I had worked in sales and marketing in several different capacities: Sales support, online copywriting, social media management and B2B marketing. I took a lot from my experience and applied it to our online sales and marketing strategies.
