Over a decade ago, barely used sumo suits were headed to the trash. Chris Thompson, with a family just getting started and a newly bought house with plenty of storage in an unfinished basement, was with a friend who was told to get rid of everything in a company storage unit, including the sumo suits. Having the space to store the sumo suits, Chris decided he would acquire them.
There the sumo suits would sit, in storage, until a little backyard BBQ brought them out of hibernation. A next door neighbor of Chris noticed the co-motion and asked him if he had rented the sumo suits. From there the idea was born.
After the first year of renting sumo suits, Chris and his wife Brittany heard about inflatable movie screens that could be bought and rented to people having parties in their backyards to watch movies under the stars. They decided to expand from just renting sumo suits to inflatable cinemas. Several sumo suits and movie screens of all different sizes later, Chris and Brittany expanded again to inflatable bounce houses, water slides, sport interactive games, bubble balls, and black lights, and most recently motorhomes for rent.
Chris and Brittany Thompson now have 5 beautiful children and run Canyon Party Rental as a seasonal side adventure. They reside in Highland Utah and operate their party rental business from a quaint little house, turned commercial office space off of State Street in Lehi Utah.
Their goal is to take the guess work out of party planning. To make it affordable with very easy DIY options and to provide everyone who chooses to rent from Canyon Party Rental that their parties are hassle and worry free and full of excitement. Here at Canyon Party Rental, your party just got easier!
