Scaling Shop Business

Sandlot Sports. Ever hear of them? Well this shop started back in 2008 with a 400 sq. ft. space. Today they operate a shop that’s over 4x as large!

How did they do it? Knowing what they know now, would they do anything differently? Who are the people behind this successful shop?

Meet Adam McCauley & Ryan Dost. These two entrepreneurs took an idea, and have grown it into a company that has recently won the Michigan Small Business Development Center Award for the Best Small Business. While initially focusing on the sports market, Sandlot Sports has expanded into new segments, with an emphasis on being a “one stop shop” for customers.
