Celebrating 10 Years Since the First Mall Kiosk Location

Eric Griffin

Looking back, it’s hard to believe that 10 years ago today (May 20, 2009) Dennis and I opened our first mall kiosk at King of Prussia Mall in Philadelphia. We opened this location in an attempt to show people first hand how great our screen protectors were. What we learned from that first location would change the future of the entire company – we realized how much stronger we would be if we paired up with entrepreneurs passionate about retail, while we focused on product innovation and branding. Little did we know that important lesson would lead to the global phenomenon this brand has become! If someone had told me back then “this company is going to grow to 700 locations around the world” I would have never believed them…Luckily, I would have been wrong.

Here are a few of our favorite milestones along this amazing 10 year journey. We look forward to our next 10 years and invite you to join us! #MOis10
