This week’s Vendor Spotlight is on Chase Canopy! Stay tuned for real wedding Wednesday for a wedding featuring their beautiful tent!
1. How did your business come to be?
Chase Canopy is a family business! It’s where it all began, and how we continue to grow. Brothers, Dan and Andrew Chase, were initially cabinet makers by trade. While still working at cabinet shops during the day, they built their first 20 x 20 tent for a neighborhood party in a one-car garage that belonged to their grandmother. When the party was over, a friend needed a tent and rented it from them! And so it began! At that point they saw the opportunity and built a second one, a 20 x 40 tent, and began advertising it for rent. They soon discovered , however, it was impractical to create tents larger than that, so in 1979 they began purchasing inventory for Chase Canopy Company.
Today our company maintains a well-stocked inventory that serves both residential and commercial users. We offer a complete line of rental equipment for weddings, corporate events, fundraisers, graduations, etc. In addition, we specialize in custom-event flooring, staging, and tent washing. Because we have a good working relationship with many of the tent and awning companies in the region we wanted to share with them a much needed service to keep all tents sparkling. As a result, we recently built a 50 x 120 foot facility with a 35′ high ceiling. This warehouse can accommodate the washing and drying of tents in all sizes. Living in a seaside community, our tent washing equipment can also help sail boat companies and owners keep their sails looking their brightest in the ocean as well.
Since 1979, we have been serving Rhode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts Cape Cod and Nantucket, and continue to grow!
