Today we’d like to introduce you to Griffin Perry.
Griffin, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I have always had a passion to be an entrepreneur, even since I was a kid. When my mom would have garage sales I would go pick up horse manure or large rocks and sell them. $2 for a bag of manure or $5 per “boulder”. Throughout my life, I had a passion to make money and do business. I got into the event planning side when my friends and I would through parties but no one knew where to begin so I just jumped in and asked around, did what needed to be done. The first party we had we needed a DJ, so I found the DJ and then after that if I couldn’t find one I became one. Pretty soon I started to make connections with other people who needed help with events and started to network. I was 18 when I purchased my first limo and party bus, and by far the transportation side has been my favorite.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Oh, this makes me chuckle – No, it hasn’t been easy. When I first bought the limo and party bus the hardest part was finding insurance. I believe I went through 29 insurance companies all telling me no that my company wasn’t established enough and I was too young, they didn’t want to take the risk, I was just about to give up, but something told me to just keep going – low and behold lucky number 30 came through.
I remember thinking this is going to be the toughest part, it was smooth sailing from there, boy, was I wrong. But you grow from each experience, you learn and you tweak. That’s just part of it.

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
My dad restores Jaguars for living and older cars like Austin Healeys, etc. I loved when I would get to test drive them with him. He would take me to school in one or pick me up from school. It was truly a dream come true not very many people can say they have ridden in the cars that my dad has worked on.
