In 1978, Kip Tindell (CEO), Garrett Boone (Chairman), and Architect John Mullen opened a retail store offering an exceptional and eclectic mix of products devoted to helping people simplify their lives. In doing so, they originated a completely new category of retailing, that of storage and organization. Initial cash capital was provided by Garrett, his father, and John Mullen, who were founding directors, officers and shareholders of the Company.
It's the founders' commitment to its employees and their principled way of doing business that has landed The Container Store at the top of FORTUNE magazine's annual list of "100 Best Companies To Work For" seven years in a row.
