Few if any Lansing success stories compare with that of Two Men and a Truck. The moving company began in 1985 as an after school endeavor with an advertising budget in a ceramic dish.  Today, founder Mary Ellen Sheets leads a company whose revenue clears $300-million annually. Two Men and a Truck has locations in 39 states and four countries. It has completed roughly five million moves. It also donates about two and a half million dollars in moving services annually.

Sheets will share the Two Men and a Truck story and field questions Thursday evening at a meeting of Startup Grind Lansing, the global start-up community. That’ll be at East Lansing’s Technology Innovation Center at 6 p.m.

Current State talks with Mary Ellen Sheets and Start Up Grind Lansing’s David Smith.
