Kyle Lacy’s breakthrough idea for a company came at a drive-through restaurant.

He was at a McDonald’s when friend and fellow Anderson University graduate Brandon Coon called him.

“It’s kind of funny if you think about it. Brandon called me up and asked if I wanted to start a marketing firm. We had always talked about it through college and now was the time. We started it the next week,” Lacy said.
