Business Idea: Two men and a truck

The company was founded in the early 1980s by Lansing brothers Brig Sorber and Jon Sorber. Using an old pickup truck, they performed moves to earn extra money. Their mother, Mary Ellen Sheets, drew the logo for their new company. That stick-figure logo still represents TWO MEN AND A TRUCK today.

Sheets took over the business when her sons left for college. In 1985, she purchased a 14-foot truck for $350 and hired a pair of movers. This is the only money Sheets personally invested in the company. A fellow panelist at a university business seminar in 1988 suggested Sheets consider franchising. After further research, the first franchise was awarded in 1989.
