In April of 2015 Renee Simon wanted to give her husband Marc a bar to go on the pool deck for their anniversary. After looking around at local stores and looking online she decided to build Marc a bar out of exterior treated lumber. The original bar (pictured above) was 6 feet in size. Marc posted pictures on Facebook and someone said, “Hey you should try listing that on craigslist.” We did and 5 months later we incorporated and in just under a year Marc quit his full-time job followed by the need for Renee to close down her computer networking company as foo-BARS was rapidly growing.
We have traversed from the one simple design above to several products and variations ranging from bars, reception desks and sales counters in just 7 years and have 5 valued employees besides ourselves.
