Peripheral Outlet was formed in 1986 by 14-year-old, Jeff Thompson, with $2,500 he had saved from a newspaper route in Ada, Oklahoma. Thompson was named Young Entrepreneur of the Year in 1994 by the U.S. Small Business Administration, and profiled in Fortune magazine. Other family members were employed in the business, including brother Ryan Thompson who later founded another company.
