Tim Sperry established the first-ever Sperry Tents rental office in 1996, serving Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Over the next few years, three like-minded entrepreneurs saw the tents and decided to launch rental companies centered around Sperry Tents. Those were Sperry Tents Nantucket, Big Sky Tent and Party Rentals (Martha’s Vineyard), and Zephyr Tents (San Francisco). Over time, the family of licensed providers has grown steadily, expanding into Europe in 2012, Colombia in 2013, and more recently Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. Currently the number of companies renting Sperry Tents worldwide is quickly closing in on 40.
