The Green Box Story

In the beginning...

Co-owners Carl Dzyak and Chris Richardson have known one another since early childhood and remained the best of friends growing up. While living on the same street throughout their childhoods, they needed a central place to meet up within the neighborhood where they could hangout, relax, do what friends do, and be kids. This meeting point was established as the green electrical box that stood in the middle of the neighborhood. Carl, Chris and other neighborhood kids spent hours hanging around the “Green Box”, playing, laughing, learning, and growing up. Every day they would contact each other to say “meet at the Green Box in 5 minutes” as they looked forward to another neighborhood adventure.

Throughout the years, the Green Box became a symbol to all who lived in the neighborhood for the irreplaceable and remarkable friendships that were developed around it. It was a common occurrence for people to honk and wave as they drove past the box on the street or stop their daily activities to have a conversation with the best friends hanging out on the box. Eventually, the Green Box brought not only childhood friends together, but also connected the entire community surrounding it.  


Carl Dzyak founded Green Box ABA PLLC in October 2014. When searching for a name for the clinic, Carl could not think of a more fitting representation of what he hoped the clinic would accomplish for the individuals who it serviced and the surrounding community. Much as the neighborhood green box brought a community together and provided a place for children to dream, grow, and connect with the world around them, Green Box ABA takes pride in continuing this tradition.
