Two Js Kicks Owner’s History
Before Jaycee Lopez founded the business, he was a homeless man in Las Vegas and was a particularly low point in his life. When he had moved from New Jersey to Las Vegas in 2000, he was given only a $20 bill, which he squandered in a slot machine.
Jaycee Lopez had to live in a park for the next six months, where he would eat out of trash cans and would bathe in public fountains. He also panhandled and sold bottles of water on the Vegas strip to earn a living.
One day, he saw many people lined up near a sneaker store for days in advance to get a chance to buy newly scheduled sneakers that were being released shortly. Although Jaycee Lopez was perplexed to see these people sacrificing their families, job, and sleep to get hold of the sneakers, he volunteered to stand in line for one of the people.
Thus, Jaycee Lopez learned more about the resale of sneakers and got experienced in the business. This later helped him found Two Js Kicks, which was then renamed Urban Necessities.
Two Js Kicks
Jaycee Lopez partnered with his girlfriend and future wife, Joanie, and founded Two Js Kicks. By the end of the year, which was only a few months after starting their business venture, the couple had amassed and sold off $1 million worth of sneakers. The next year, they managed to sell off $4 million worth of sneakers.
Two Js Kicks, which was initially comprised of only one store located in Las Vegas Boulevard Mall, expanded to two physical stores and an online store. This move brought great success to Two Js Kicks as in 2019, Jaycee Lopez was able to make $21 million in sales.
