High school friends and serial entrepreneurs Tal Aviram and Chad Cook are transforming San Francisco’s home renovation scene by opening a Bay Area Garage Living franchise. Garage Living is the country’s No. 1 home improvement franchise and specializes in remodeling dusty, disorganized garages into stylish, functional spaces. Aviram and Cook bring their expertise and passion for business to the new location at 2641 Barrington Court in Hayward, California. 

Aviram and Cook’s entrepreneurial journey began in Washington when they met in high school in 1988. After gaining valuable corporate sales experience by selling voicemail auto attendant systems, they opened a gourmet pizzeria on Mercer Island when they were both just 21. Its success led to three more locations, including one in Shanghai, China. “I think we learned what to watch out for when starting your own business through that experience,” says Cook.

Their partnership continued to thrive, with the friends running multiple businesses together, including three marinas in Florida. Cook now lives in San Francisco most of the time, while Aviram owns another Garage Living location in Seattle. “I am looking forward to expanding Garage Living to San Francisco and can’t wait to delve into the world of business with Chad again,” says Aviram. Since its opening in 2021, Aviram’s Seattle franchise has become one of the fastest-growing markets in the country.

Founded in 2005, Entrepreneur Magazine calls Garage Living a Top 500 Franchise across all categories. With 38 franchise locations across North America, the company provides a full-service, single-source solution that takes homeowners from design to installation. Each Garage Living location is managed by professionally trained designers, installers, and service personnel, ensuring the highest quality service and results.
