SpareFoot Moves Into New Headquarters and Celebrates 10 Years in Business

On the year of its 10th anniversary, SpareFoot, a storage marketplace, moved this month to new headquarters at University Park.

Sparefoot has raised $49.4 million since its founding in 2008, according to its Crunchbase profile. SpareFoot’s last round of funding came in 2015 led by Revolution Growth, founded by Steve Case, founder of America Online.

SpareFoot has 100 employees in its Austin headquarters, after moving it’s call center offshore in 2015.

“We’ve come a long way from our first offices inside Capital Factory, to the Perry Brooks Tower across the street at 720 Brazos, and now to our current space,” co-founder and CEO Chuck Gordon, said in a news release.

SpareFoot’s new location provides lots of amenities including a “gym and yoga room; free covered parking and indoor bike storage, and is dog-friendly — an absolute must for SpareFoot employees’ “SparePups,” according to a news release. It also has a kitchen with an in-house chef and culinary team and a gaming area.

SpareFoot has participated in the Startup Games since it began and the company has won gold four times, more than any other company. This year, SpareFoot won a silver medal and raised $10,000 for Breakthrough Central Texas. To date, the company has raised more than $100,000 for nonprofit organizations.

SpareFoot was named to the Top Company Cultures list in 2017 by Entrepreneur Magazine.

Correction: An earlier version of this story had the incorrect headcount for Sparefoot at the time of its last funding round. The company had 200 employees. We regret the error.
