Our History

Derek Lyons, the owner and operator of Garage Door Guy, began his career as a garage door technician in 2009 as a means to provide for him and his new bride after relocating to Arizona to accept an unpaid youth ministry position at a small church.  

Derek quickly mastered the skills and fell in love with the trade. The idea for Garage Door Guy came to him during his time with this small family run operation, but the timing was just not right.

In 2014, God brought Derek and his wife Regina to Springfield, MO and, with over 5 years experience in the field, Derek quickly found another garage door technician job.

It was almost a year later in 2015 when Derek would finally see his dreams become a reality.  With the full support of his loving wife and friends he’d met along the way Garage Door Guy was finally born.

Just six years later, Garage Door Guy is the fastest growing garage door company in the Springfield area and has grown to over 5 employees, a 3,000 square foot warehouse and 3 technicians. In 2020, Garage Door Guy is expecting to surpass one million in revenue due it’s focus on customer service and creating a great culture for employees to thrive in.
