Two decades ago native Cape Codder, Justin Labdon, turned in his suit and tie and mornings stuck in heavy Boston traffic for the American dream. Sitting in a rusty metal beach chair on the roof of his North End condo in 2002, Justin was inspired to return to his roots and create the most comfortable, enduring beach chair that reflected the spirit of Cape Cod. Growing up, Justin developed a love for sailing, surfing and the beauty of the Cape. He combined this passion and appreciation with his business education and experience to develop a detailed business plan for the Cape Cod Beach Chair Company.
From those humble beginnings the company has grown immensely, and the chairs have become a staple on the beaches of Cape Cod and beyond. Although the designs continue to evolve and Justin continues to innovate to create the most comfortable, durable beach chair available, the chairs today resemble the original models that customers first fell in love with. The chairs are highly customizable, which is in large part why they are so beloved by so many. The ability to add personalized embroidery has helped the chairs make their way into the hearts of many families who continue to return to create chairs to celebrate important milestones, such as weddings, birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, and more.
The operation has long since outgrown the humble garage that the chairs were originally built in. Today the chairs are assembled and embroidered in a 130-year old barn in Harwich, MA. A hidden Cape Cod gem, the CCBC store never fails to impress first time visitors with the pleasant and thorough experience of creating your own beach chair and the wide selection of beach essentials stocked in store. It’s hard to miss the iconic giant beach chair that stands outside the store.
