The first Bad Boy store was opened in 1955 by Mel Lastman who often went by the nickname "the Bad Boy." Lastman opened up a chain of stores in Ontario before he eventually sold the company in 1975, in order to become a politician. His son Blayne Lastman then re-launched the Bad Boy chain in 1991 and is still the owner. Many of the Bad Boy TV advertisements feature cameos from Mel Lastman who served as Mayor of Toronto from 1998 until 2003.
