When naming the company back in 2012, Alex believed that the name should mean something special to him, and in his opinion, should be very personal. Seeking a name that would tell a unique brand story, he decided to name it Yola Customs as Yola is the name of a small town in Russia where he grew up in called Yoshkar-Ola. Citizens of the area lovingly call it Yola for short and that’s how Yola found a new home in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
