Founder

Mary Ellen Sheets

In 25 years, Mary Ellen Sheets has grown her sons’ small moving business into an international brand with more than 1,900 trucks and 300 locations worldwide. After her sons, Brig and Jon Sorber, left for college, the business continued to receive numerous requests so Sheets decided to take it over. She purchased an old moving truck for $350 – the only money she ever invested in the company – and hired two movers. The business grew steadily and eventually, she quit her state government job (foregoing her retirement) to put 100 percent into her thriving moving business.

By 1989, Sheets had developed the business into the first and only local moving franchise in the United States. Sheets considers herself fortunate to have all three children actively involved in running the company. 

Community Service

A key portion of Sheets' business model is to give back to the community. Always active in local service projects, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®’s commitment to the community began with Sheets. At the end of her first year in business, she profited $1,000 and then donated all of it -- giving $100 to 10 different charities.

Sheets established the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Micro Enterprise Fund to encourage fledgling business owners, and she is the supporter of many other charities.
