TJPR Founders Toni & Jeff Anderson

Keeping Business a Family Affair

For nearly a decade, TJ Party Rentals has provided elite-level entertainment for Iowa’s biggest and best events. A locally owned and family-operated business, TJ Party Rentals was founded in Belmond, Iowa, by the trusted husband and wife team of Jeff and Toni Anderson. Their son, Josh, heads up a second TJ Party Rentals location in Des Moines.

The Andersons broke into the entertainment business in 1992 after developing a line of portable batting cages and driving ranges. These unique items had become quite a hit (pun intended) among North Central Iowa-area corporate picnics and private parties, and clients were soon clamoring for more top-notch interactive entertainment. Striving to keep their customers satisfied, the Andersons began accumulating an impressive inventory of high-quality inflatables and games, and in 2004 they established TJ Party Rentals.

As Iowa’s demand for safe, locally owned inflatables grew, word of the Andersons’ excellent selection and trustworthy reputation spread. By 2007, TJ Party Rentals had developed and retained an extremely satisfied customer base, and thanks to an overwhelming number of enthusiastic referrals, their clientele had expanded to include school functions, city festivals, county fairs and high-profile charity events reaching out to every corner of the state.

Continuing to grow their business annually, 2011 was the biggest year yet for the Andersons. Following a recent expansion of their Des Moines facility, TJ Party Rentals now owns over 100 pieces of entertainment equipment—the largest selection in Iowa. Though they are now able to handle the biggest of corporate events, the Andersons have kept their business a family affair and they still deliver the same friendly and dependable experience they have since day one.
