HOW A RENEGADE MUSEUM TOUR COMPANY USES SOFIA STORAGE

Utilizing Sofia Storage Facility has been a huge win for us and has been a major factor in helping us scale to close to $3 million per year in annual revenue and join the Inc 5000 list as one of the fastest-growing companies in America.” – Tasia Duske, CEO of Museum Hack and The Great Guac Off™

Museum Hack (URL: https://museumhack.com/) began as a side project for our founder, Nick Gray, who fell in love on a date at the Metropolitan Museum of Art — with the museum. Our storage needs at the beginning were small, but as the company started to grow, two things happened: we needed a spot to host internal team building activities and training, and we needed a place to store all of the items that make our tours unique, like swag, prizes, and guide equipment. 

Despite needing a spot that would work for both of these business needs, we knew it didn’t make sense for us to get our own office. Most of our work happens at the museums where we run tours; in NYC, finding an office space would be expensive and we thought that money would be better reinvested into the business and our people. 

We started the hunt for a storage space near the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the American Museum of Natural History, our primary museums in NYC where we offer museum tours and team building activities (URL:https://museumhack.com/team-building/nyc/), and that’s when we found Sofia Storage conveniently located on 83rd Street and Amsterdam Avenue. It was the perfect fit for our needs; it’s easily accessible, the staff is extremely friendly, and it’s a cost-effective storage option for us.

Over the last five years, we’ve grown to include team building operations and museum tours across the United States in cities including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Washington DC, Boston, and Austin. Our NYC operation has expanded, too, to include more museums and a sister company, The Great Guac Off (URL: https://thegreatguacoff.com/team-building-new-york-city/), which requires a lot more equipment — and comes with a lot more storage needs! As we have grown, we have increased our storage needs with Sofia Storage, allowing us to move to larger units to store more gear for our multiple operations.
