Meet Kip and Jade Leach of Arizona Cornhole Rentals in East Valley

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kip and Jade Leach.

Kip, Jade, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Our family business was started for 2 main reasons: Teaching my son entrepreneurship skills & the love of the game.

First – I believe you can never over prepare your children for adulthood. In starting Arizona Cornhole Rentals I’ve been able to show my 11 year old son several life lessons in operating a business. For example he is learning how to prepare income / expense reports. How to interact with the public, build a strong work ethic, & collaborate on business decisions.

Secondly – we found playing the game of cornhole was becoming a nightly family bonding experience. We would spend hours every night challenging each other, our family is very competitive.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Damaged Equipment;
We remember how exciting it was when we received our first rental order. We also remember how discouraging it was when that equipment was returned destroyed. We ended up selling the equipment on Craigslist because it didn’t meet our standards in quality equipment that we want to be known for. Through trial and error we found quality carrying cases for the cornhole boards. This allows the cornhole boards to be transported securely, which minimizes the amount of damage the cornhole boards are subjected to.

Social Media:
Myself being a gen X, social media wasn’t that important to me. I received an awakening when a local business took our company name and registered it on social media for their benefit. This prompted me to lock down the remaining social media sites to preserve our company name. Lesson learned.

Reviews:
As a new business reviews can help you learn and grow. I always ask the customer upon returning the rentals how everything went. Every single customer has expressed their appreciation and often times says there will be repeat business. I always do a follow up email with the new customer, and provide a link to leave us a review. To date I haven’t found the magic combo that encourages the majority of customers to spend 2 minutes leaving a review.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Arizona Cornhole Rentals story. Tell us more about the business.
At Arizona Cornhole Rentals our mission is simple. Provide you with easy to rent, quality cornhole boards & bags, at an affordable price.

Our pricing structure is simple and straight forward. No hourly or complicated pricing. Rent Today & Return Tomorrow – $30.

Unlike other cornhole rental companies, we use professional cornhole bags. These are the same cornhole bags you see in tournaments or on TV. Far superior to regular cornhole bags. Pro bags have a side that sticks to the cornhole board and a side that slides on the cornhole board. This allows you to bring skill and strategy to your game play.

Previously we rented only cornhole boards and bags. This year we are diversifying into other yard rental games. We just brought a new game to Arizona, Aholes. It’s a mixture of darts and cornhole & up to 8 people can play @ a time. It’s portable, fun for all ages and great for office or birthday parties.

At Arizona Cornhole Rentals you are getting that family business customer service. We try and accommodate our customers’ needs by being flexible and putting the customer first. You can also take pride in knowing your helping a young man learn valuable life lessons that will equate to him growing up and being a contributing member of society.

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
We were lucky to find a game that allowed us to spend family time together and also turn into a business that provides lessons for my son. The best business you can own is one you enjoy & have a passion for.

Pricing:

  • $30 a day for regular cornhole boards + 2 sets of pro bags
