About Us

For Your Occasion Event Rentals is a family-owned and operated rental company. Owners, Chris and Tara, purchased FYO early in 2022. They are beyond excited to reopen the FYO Henderson location.  They were both born and raised in North Carolina, have deep ties to the community and a passion for family and fun.  They understand the challenges of planning a perfect event.  Chris has a mechanical, operations, and project management background. Tara’s background consists of business development, management, marketing, and sales.  Several months ago, they called FYO to rent a 20x20 tent and were told FYO was closing its doors. That moment sparked an idea that led them to start conversations with the past owners.  Several months of learning, planning, and training has brought them to opening day. Chris and Tara are a dynamic duo team and will reignite the FYO business.  They look forward to serving all your party and event rental needs.
