OUR STORY

chris-fox-headshot

Chris founded Fox Home Innovations, LLC in 2009. As an aspiring young entrepreneur Chris had a vision of building a remodeling company that simply did what they said they were going to do. Starting from this idea, and a need to make an income, Chris used his time at Kansas State University to make this idea come to life. Leveraging his relationships at the university, Chris began doing odds-and-ends projects, striving to deliver a client experience that set him apart from the competition. In these early days, Chris was building foundational principles that remain at the core of Fox Home! Chris continued to progress the company as he wrapped up his time at Kansas State. With graduation approaching in May 2011 Chris was given an opportunity for employment and simultaneously he was called to perform his first major remodel. Ultimately, Chris chose to follow his vision to continue building Fox Home Innovations, LLC and hasn’t looked back since!

In its third year of operation, Fox Home had found itself performing larger projects and even tried running a small crew in Kansas City for a short period of time. During these early years of growth Chris began to realize that to scale further there was a need for more manpower and even potentially an opportunity for partnership. In preparation for a project that involved working from heights and on the exterior of a home, Chris approached a peer from Kansas State to help with the project. At the time Matt Carlson was a full-time firefighter with the Manhattan Fire Department. He had recently graduated with the same degree as Chris and also grew up around construction, so Chris figured that he would be a good candidate to help. Matt agreed to help, and throughout the course of that project the two began to realize that a potential business partnership was forming. Chris approached Matt about continuing to work for Fox, but also be a part of some of the business planning to see how they worked together. One short and busy year later, Matt purchased a minority stake in Fox Home Innovations, officially becoming an owner. The two wasted little time in setting their sites for a bigger, brighter future. The following year, in 2014, Fox Home was experiencing substantial growth and Matt decided to resign from the Manhattan Fire Department to join Fox Home full time. From then on, the two worked in tandem to build upon the foundation Chris laid to start growing Fox Home into the company it is today.

Rolling into its fifth year, Fox Home was rapidly growing both in size and reputation. At this point in their journey, Chris and Matt had begun to expand the company into larger projects requiring more staff and coordination. The two soon realized that the one-bedroom office they had been operating in for the past few years was no longer suitable for their current operation. By chance a office/warehouse space became available around this same time! This space would serve as the home for Fox Home Innovations over the next four years and would be witness to some of the most transformative years in the company’s maturation. Moving locations was only one portion for the busy growing company this year. Fox Home was inducted into Remodeling Magazine’s Big 50 class of 2014, spotlighting them as one of the top tier companies in the nation! Chris and Matt were asked to fly to Washington, D.C., to accept the award among 49 members of their class. This trip not only allowed the two business owners to gain an accolade, but it also exposed Fox Home to a higher level of professionalism in remodeling and allowed for the opportunity to network with companies from all areas of the country. These relationships would help cultivate an even better client experience and avenue for future learning.

Celebrating the company’s 10th year and first year in the new building, Fox Home grew to become a staple in the community and industry-leading remodeling company. As the staff continued to grow, Chris and Matt along with the Leadership team, continued working to evolve the company. With a focus and dedication to the client’s experience the team worked to drive the company forward. At this point in the company’s history, Fox Home was routinely performing projects of all sizes and scopes, up to and including a few custom homes. Even after ten years the entire company still shared the same values and dedication to being a top-tier remodeling company that Chris envisioned in the beginning.

Five short years later Fox Home is entering its 15th year. Boasting a staff of over 20 members, the company looks very different to when Chris opened the doors. Using the company's in-house design, supplemented by the showroom and all-star production staff, Fox Home is providing clients with exceptional client experiences and professional quality work! When looking back over the last 15 years it is incredible to see all the milestones, benchmarks, and achievements that the company has witnessed. Walking in the doors of the business today, however, clients will find a driven, friendly staff that recognizes what it took to arrive here as a company, but they are even more excited to see what Fox Home Innovations can do for our employees and clients in the next 15 years…….
