Parking Lots, Tim Horton’s, and Notebooks
RenoRun was born in 2016 and launched in 2017, with the insight that contractors spend too much time away from their job sites by going to the store to procure materials. Before building out the concept, the co-founders—three construction industry veterans—would sit in different hardware store parking lots around Montreal in the winter, with Tim Horton’s coffees, and notebooks in hand. They kept count of anyone coming out in work boots, plus vans and pickup trucks, and compared notes at the end of the day. This was their “customer.”
After noticing that there were roughly 2,000 contractors per hour circulating hardware stores in Montreal, they decided to set out on a crusade to better serve them, and to unleash them from the unpleasantries that had been normalized in the construction industry.
Fast forward to today and we’re still on that mission to empower contractors to build the work around us. Construction professionals don’t just want, but deserve, to get time back.
