In March 1986 the late F. Patrick Sher, Stephen Daugherty and Jack Kopkin founded the Office Depot. All of them were formerly associated with the home improvement company Home-owner's Warehouse which later came to be known as Mr. HOW Warehouse.

This led them to start Office Depot and its first store was opened at the Lakes Mall in Lauder dale Lakes, Florida in October 1986. The company opened its 1000th store in 2005 in Illinoisan.
