The American Dream


Joe and Shane met in 1991 while working on a state-of-the-art electric vehicle project. While Joe was heavily engaged in the project in the Midwest, Shane kept equally busy on the West Coast. The distance between them was no match for the new business partnership which quickly developed into what is now a 24 year friendship.

In 2008, Joe and Shane opened their flagship store in Minnesota at the Mall of America.  As business partners, they discovered that the gold market could be the perfect place to blend their entrepreneurial spirits with their desire to bring opportunity to others. They hand-picked their crew from the people closest to them, creating a unique work environment based on trust and integrity. Now, with 8 locations, Joe and Shane spend their time overseeing the operation. They credit The Gold Guys’ success to their highly trained, self-sufficient staff. Now Joe and Shane can focus their time traveling between store locations and engaging in community appearances. Joe and Shane want you to know them, the Gold Guys; that’s why they put their faces on everything they do. Just like you have your insurance guy, and your auto repair guy – now you have Joe and Shane… your gold guys!
