Why Tampa Sheds ?

The Tampa Sheds' Story

The Tampa Sheds Family of dealerships began in 1976 with the opening of our first location, Pope’s Utility Buildings, located at the corner of Martin Luther King Blvd, known as Buffalo Ave at that time, and Orient Rd. Founders Ulmer and Rebecca Pope started their humble small business with only a few silver pipe frame storage units for sale and grew it into the largest dealership in the Greater Tampa Bay area.

When they began, no one in the local industry offered the option of leveling, blocking, and anchoring a storage shed. Mr. Pope knew it was the right way to serve his customers, so from day one, he included this service as part of the sale. Pope's way of operating became the industry standard in just a few short years.

As the business grew, Langston's Utility Building was opened in the Plant City/Dover area by Mr. Pope's Daughter and son-in-law, Brenda & Lloyd Langston. Since then, they have added two more locations, our Mulberry/Lakeland and Port Charlotte offices.

Mr. and Mrs. Pope retired in 1994, and their grandson, Mike Langston, took over the day-to-day operations for the Tampa and Port Charlotte locations. In 2014, Brenda & Lloyd retired, and their son Eric Langston took over the operations of the Plant City and Mulberry locations. Mike and Eric have worked in the family business since their teenage years and together have over 60 years of experience in the storage shed business. They continue to operate on the principles their grandparents and parents started the business with, that if they serve the customer with excellence and treat people the way you would want to be treated, everything else will take care of itself. This way of conducting business has created customer loyalty and success, allowing the business to thrive for over 40 years.

Their families are grateful to the Tampa Bay community for their continued support and trust. They look forward to many more years as the 4th generation of the family is now serving in the business. They appreciate you taking the time to read their story and considering them for your storage needs.

At Tampa Sheds, our mission is to offer superior storage solutions at fair prices while consistently exceeding customer expectations. Our dedicated and expert team is passionate about tailoring solutions to best fit each customer's needs.

We service what we sell! All our backyard structures come with complete limited warranties as provided by their manufacturers (see each item for their specific warranty ) .
