Yard Boys got its start in 1993 when Chris Millsap, the CEO of Yard Boys, attached a wooden cart to his bike and started towing his lawn mower around to cut neighbour’s lawns. By the time Chris was in grade 10 he had 3 classmates as employees. He named his fast-growing business ‘Yard Boys’. When he graduated from high school and went off to the University of Guelph to study agriculture a partner kept the business running.
The defining moment for Chris came toward the end of University. On a visit, back to Creemore for a hockey tournament, Chris had to make a decision. The business had grown to $150,000 in annual revenue and had reached the point where he had to sell it and move on to other endeavours or get serious about Yard Boys. He got serious.
