HomeFront Brands multi-unit owner opens The Designery in Charleston this month

Owner Nate Van Valkenburg also owns two other of the leading national franchise network's home service brands and plans to continue his success with the kitchen, bath and closet design center

CHARLESTON, S.C. -- The Designery, an immersive, full-service kitchen, bath and closet design center featuring high-quality cabinets, will celebrate its newest location in Charleston, South Carolina, with a grand opening on April 25 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the design center's new location at 1217 Remount Road.

The Designery Charleston is owned by Nate Van Valkenburg, who also owns a Window Hero and Yard Patrol Pros in the area. All three brands are franchised by HomeFront Brands, a family of companies that hold an increasing number of emerging residential and light commercial property service franchised brands. The grand opening will feature a ribbon cutting ceremony at 4:30 p.m. with the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce, and beer, wine and charcuterie will be available during the event.

"It's an honor to open my third HomeFront Brands franchise in the Charleston area," Van Valkenburg said. "The training, support and guidance I've received from HomeFront Brands has enabled me to continue providing homeowners with the services they need to improve their property and enjoy their homes and gardens. I consider myself lucky to be a member of the HomeFront Brands family and expect that The Designery will meet with the same success I've had with Window Hero and Yard Patrol Pros."

In November, Van Valkenburg was awarded HomeFront Brands' Top Producer of the Year at the franchisor's annual convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. This award is presented to the franchisee who shows unwavering dedication to success and an unmatched ability to drive revenue.

Van Valkenburg attended the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and worked in the exterior cleaning business for several years before starting his own business. He and his wife, Ali, live in Charleston with their daughter.

The Designery Charleston serves residents in Folly Beach, Goose Creek, Hanahan, Isle of Palms, James Island, Kiawah Island, Ladson, Lincolnville, North Charleston, Sangaree, Seabrook Island, Sullivan's Island and Summerville, South Carolina.

The Designery's in-house design expertise and extensive selection of products, including more than 100 cabinet styles, provide advantages to both homeowners and contractors. Its showrooms provide the ideal setting for personal design consultation, material and finish selection, and a virtual reality design view.
