June 9, 2014 – Muskoka Party Rentals is celebrating its 10th anniversary in business with a new logo and a revised website. The Bracebridge, Ont., event rental store has been in operation since December, 2003. Owner Kim Rixon is secretary of the Ontario Canadian Rental Association.
Rixon launched Muskoka Party Rentals from her home. It only operated there for a few months as Rixon quickly determined that more storage space was needed for all the equipment. Early in 2004 MPR rented space just down the road from its current location and shared the building. Space became an issue again in 2006, so MPR built a new building and moved into its current location at 27 Barron Drive. With the new building there was room to start a linen division and so MPR started renting its own linen.
Rixon has seen her role change as the business has grown. "When I first started the business I was out doing deliveries all the time," she remembers, "setting up tents and seeing customers on site. But in the past couple of years I have been fortunate to hire some key people leaving me more time to manage things from the office. This means my customers don’t get to see me out setting up a tent as often but it still happens from time to time and I always enjoy seeing my customers sites."
"It is hard to believe Muskoka Party Rentals has been in business for 10 years," she continues. "I feel so honoured to have such loyal customers who have supported me this entire time. The saying 'Time flies when you’re having fun' really applies here. I’ve had a great time building this business and I’m always looking for new ways to improve and grow it. I can’t wait to see what the next 10 years brings: new trends, new couples, new challenges – it’s all exciting!"
