After Randy Stenger appeared on “Shark Tank” and received the $150,000 he was asking for, he expanded Extreme Sandbox, opening a second location in April 2016 at Tanglewood Resort in Pottsboro, Texas. They also signed a sponsorship deal with the construction equipment company Komatsu America, allowing Extreme Sandbox to use Komatsu equipment.
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, businesses shut down and protocols were put in place for social distancing. Extreme Sandbox did its best to accommodate people and to keep its facility as clean as possible at all times. The company also began to host drive-thru events in April of 2020 as a way to get people to come out and social distance.
In September 2020, they relocated their Pottsboro branch to Sachse to better serve customers from the Dallas-Fort Worth area. However, the site closed on April 10, 2022, as the site was sold by the developer and their lease, consequently, wasn’t renewed (via Extreme Sandbox). As of May 2022, Extreme Sandbox’s only site is the Hastings, Minnesota, location, but they’re always looking for opportunities to expand again, and they hope to find a new location in the DFW area in the future.
