ABOUT GRAND APPS

We can say it wasn't always easy, but who said it would be? From bootstrapping out of a basement to hiring teams and building a company, we have always tried to focus on the human element.

late 2011

This is the year it all began for us. Jacob Canfield (Left), Jon Butler (Middle) and Chris Ake (Right) noticed a massive shift in the smartphone mobile market and immediately knew this was the industry they wanted to tackle, hence Grand Apps was formed.

fast forward to present day

We kept growing because we were producing quality projects for clients and received a lot of word of mouth marketing from that.  Our first office was located in a basement for the first few years but we've since moved into a large office downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan.

As we've grown, we have expanded our services to web development, web apps, along with other emerging technologies. One of our core values is to adapt & evolve and we live by that daily.

THE GRAND VALUES

We're not always perfect, but we strive to follow these 6 key principles.

POSITIVITY

"we can complain because rosebushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses."

ADAPT AND EVOLVE

"the measure of intelligence is the ability to change."

CONSTACT COMMUNICATION

"don't use words too big for the subject."

ABOVE AND BEYOND SERVICE

"the best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others."

ALWAYS PUT PEOPLE FIRST

"our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them."

NOW, NOW, NOW

"don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today."
