Exclusive HGTV closets partner to speak at CCCE 2019

CHARLOTTE -- Mike Hoffer, co-founder, and president of Carolina Closets Plus, located in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, will be a featured speaker at the Cabinets & Closets Conference & Expo March 6-8, 2019.   Carolina Closets Plus is the exclusive home storage design and installation team in central North Carolina for HGTV's "Love It or List It.” Hoffer will share his experience of working with HGTV and how that venture developed.

Hoffer and late business partner Craig Yarnell built a legacy of businesses that evolved into Carolina Closets Plus. According to the company's website, this all started in 1985 when they opened “Chapel Hill’s favorite hardware store,” Yarnell-Hoffer Hardware. In the early 90s, they expanded their capabilities and began to organize customers lives — and Carolina Closets Plus was born.

The company has developed a unique team approach which Hoffer says sets it apart from others in the industry. Once they look at a project, the entire team, from the owner to the production manager to the installation manager, evaluates every aspect of the job to offer customers the best “detail perfection” solution possible. "We believe there are a lot of details lost between the three separate functions of sales, production and installation that most companies use."

In addition to Hoffer, also at the company oldest child Lindsey is the production manager, while Mike's wife Terri helps with sales calls and manages the company books. Attend the Cabinets & Closets Conference to hear his story.
