Rob Hancharick, Rent The Box

Jon Real Estate Leave a Comment

I’m a huge fan of great ideas, and the clever entrepreneurs that bring them to life.  Rent The Box and its founder, Rob Hancharick, definitely qualify.  For those of you who have dropped serious cash on disposable cardboard moving boxes only to throw them out a few weeks later will appreciate the concept.  From burgers to plastic boxes, Rob’s a guy worth knowing…

Q. Last meal in Atlanta. Where are you going, and what are you eating?

A.  Has to be the burger at Shaun’s in Inman Park.  I consider myself a burger connoisseur and this is the best burger I’ve ever had.

Q. 24 hours riding MARTA, 12 hours driving The Perimeter, or 6 hours walking up and down Peachtree?

A.  Easy!  6 hours walking up and down Peachtree.  I lived in NYC and used to go “”urban hiking”” all the time, exploring different neighborhoods.  It’s a great way to learn your city.

Q. Favorite Atlanta road trip?

A.  I am a kayaker and my favorite road trip is up to the mountains.  The two hour drive to the Ocoee River is my regular weekend jaunt.

Q. Favorite neighborhood(s)?

A.  Inman Park, where my wife and I have lived for the past 3 years.  Great neighbors, great dining and close proximity to everything (L5P, Highlands, Midtown, Decatur, etc)

Q. The best part about relocating to Atlanta is…

A. …..meeting my wife, the weather, the people and having a car again.

BONUS QUESTION: What is Rent The Box, and why is it awesome?
