From computers to cabinets, this family means business.
As the “B” in A&B Cabinets, Bo Hutchison was destined to play a role in his family’s business. And so it was. 18 years ago, with a newly minted degree in business and computer information systems, Bo purchased his father’s cabinet business. Armed with cutting-edge computer skills and a fresh perspective, his unbridled passion took the business to a whole new level.
Tell us something that your customers would be surprised to know about you.
My path to becoming a designer was paved by exploring hobbies but none of them gave me the same satisfaction as design. I’ve tried everything, from playing guitar to woodworking and even kayaking, and I still enjoy designing the most. Fortunately, these activities allowed me to broaden my creative horizons—adding a fresh perspective to my designs.
For what reasons did you select Waypoint to be your sole cabinet vendor?
The Partner Team, job site delivery, 2020 and excellent marketing materials like the magazine make the company, as a whole, a good fit. We use the Style Quiz to get customers pointed in the right direction. Then, Waypoint makes it so easy for us to show customers a wide variety of options. Waypoint is the perfect fit for my business!
What advice do you have for those considering a remodel?
Trust a professional. I see so many people who get pigeonholed by the footprint of their kitchen and it doesn’t have to be that way. When their kitchen was designed, it was used differently. Times change and so should the space. Each customer is different so I show them 4 or 5 different design options so they can determine which is best for them.
For you, what’s the biggest compliment or measure of success?
Happy customers who refer their friends are a compliment, but when customers refer their family members, you know they really trust us. I’ve done remodels for three different generations in one family—grandparents, parents and their kids. This company is built on longstanding relationships.
Family values and a passion for remodeling are the key ingredients in this family’s recipe for success.
