People have good days and bad, and sometimes we may be the only light in their life. Whether smiling when talking on the telephone to each other or to our customers, serving others with enthusiasm is a pleasure.

RELENTLESSLY DIG (to understand why)

We approach the world with curiosity and a healthy dose of skepticism. We passionately pursue truth and foster an environment of healthy, respectful debate.

If we can solve a problem using a better method or stop an activity “that we’ve always done,” we must.

Our story

Nearly half of Americans hate their jobs. They spend one-third of their lives going to places they dislike, working for people they don’t respect, and going through the motions of work that utterly devoid of meaning. Thank goodness I hated my job. If I wasn’t fired, the company as we know it would be nothing more than a weekend project. While some may have thrown up their hands in despair, I embraced the opportunity to change the course of my life, on his own terms. 

See, my dad asked me to “help build a website to rent units online, for his self-storage facility in Knoxville, TN.” He’s not much of a “tech guy,” so he didn’t expect much out of this project but thought it might be something I could do. After a little bit of digging, however, we realized that folks like my dad don’t have the tools to run their businesses — because they didn’t exist. The little website project grew into a mission to bring the industry into the twentieth century. The Pug was born.

Tommy Nguyen and Richard Jeffords, former college friends, joined forces with me to build the Shopify of Self Storage, StoragePug. Why pugs? Because dating back to 400 BC, the Chinese read their wrinkles to symbolize loyalty, love, and fortune. And, well, truth is, I just love pugs. 

The vision was simple: make great, usable software with amazing people and love on people who believe we can help them.

We’re zealous about helping people. Great people in bad places make bad employees. We’ve built a culture that fosters mental, emotional, and professional growth. We help our clients grow their business. We help people who find themselves at a point of need to quickly and painlessly secure the right storage facility with our clients. Our souls are full because it makes us happy to make you happy.
