Justin interviews Chris MacPhee, founder of the Suburban Camping Company, who had a big idea, something that would change the world … or at least the neighborhood.

Chris MacPhee lost his job as a regional manager for a retail fixturing company when it closed 4 years ago. The economy had created big changes and he didn’t see his job coming back. Losing it became the push Chris needed to focus on his dream to outfit suburbia with glamorous canvas tents and create backyard camp outs complete with cots, lanterns, sleeping bags and s’mores. One year later, together with his wife, Kella, Suburban Camping Company was launched and is today a successful, thriving business.
