Jeff Terry and Joe Freedman, founding partners of Peachtree Tents and Events, are long time buddies dating back to their college days at LSU. For years, the two had tried to find some venture to take on together, but the right opportunity had not yet presented itself. Jeff graduated with a Hospitality Management degree from Georgia State University and spent 15+ years within the hospitality industry honing his sales, marketing and operations skills with some of the top hospitality organizations in the Atlanta community. Joe, a serial entrepreneur, with success in numerous startups, had not yet tackled the hospitality market. Taking what they had learned in their careers thus far and considering each other’s skill sets, they joined forces and opened Peachtree Tents and Events in 2006. Finally, they had found their niche in Event Rentals!
As partners, they wanted to build a company based on the beliefs they hold true: being kind and respectful; an unwavering attention to detail; contributing to the community; working hard and having fun; and encouraging life balance for all of the team. Jeff believes that while it is our responsibility to deliver a high level of customer service, it is equally as important to take care of the community in which we live and work. As the Golden Rule says, “treat others as you would like to be treated.” It is our goal to become better people each and every day. It is not about the items that we rent, but how we treat those around us on an off the job.
Regarding community involvement, we have had the privilege of being involved with such organizations as the Atlanta Community Food Bank, City of Refuge, Atlanta Mission and Seven Bridges to Recovery. We are thankful that we have been in a position to partner with so many incredible people who are striving to improve our city.
To our clients and partners, we value the relationships and friendships that we have established through the years. We look forward to what lies ahead as Atlanta continues to grow and thrive!
