November 1994: The temperature was cool in the Atlanta area as Bob Bennett visited a stone trade show featuring Natural Stone tile distributors across the North American continent. Bob met suppliers representing stone quarries in Mexico and immediately recognized the opportunity to develop his twenty years of experience into his own business.
The first truckload of travertine Bob invested in sold within a matter of hours in the DFW marketplace. With that simple investment, Onis Stone, Inc. was born.
Growing through the years
As Onis Stone, Inc. expanded in the 1990’s, Bob’s wife, Sheri (51% owner), officially joined the company. Sheri’s previous involvement has been in the financial end of the company, but her interest has shifted into the design and fabrication divisions of the company. She acquired the passion Bob possessed for the beauty and creativity that natural stone offers.
By the late 1990’s, Bob and Sheri operated two locations of Onis Stone, Inc. One location provided a beautifully decorated showroom exhibiting their natural stone creations and ideas for their customers. The second location composed of their fabrication facility where they created the custom countertops for installation. Realizing the need for one location and a larger facility, they acquired their new location. A 3,500 square foot showroom accompanied by a 14,000 square foot warehouse and fabrication location became their new home.
The new showroom celebrated their grand opening in April, 2005. Over 1,000 new and former customers joined them in the celebration. The new showroom exhibits unique and exciting natural stone design options including their “Linderhof Design Series” featuring base, door casing and chair-rail made from all types of natural stone.
Onis Stone, Inc’s unique ability to create works of art from natural stone has positioned them as one of the leading fabricator/installers in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. They hold first place winner of Weatherford’s “Kaleidoscope of Homes” and Frisco’s “Parade of Homes” including the “People’s Choice & All-Around Winner” as well as a 100% satisfaction for the past three years with Lowe’s Granite Countertop Installation in Dallas and Fort Worth.
Along the way, the company has embraced advancements in technology, implementing computer systems, software applications, including the internet, to enhance their responsiveness, precision and quality of service. Their team is composed of the industry’s top professionals and leaders, selected for their knowledge, experience and customer-focused approach to doing business.
With that blend of skills and technology, the company is able to manage virtually any project. No matter the size, they can fabricate a simple vanity, or the most sophisticated elaborate kitchen or bathroom designed from the customer’s idea. Their ability to listen to the customer and assist them with their dream kitchen, bathroom or natural stone creation is what sets Onis Stone, Inc. apart from all the others.
The secret to Bob Bennett’s success is not the awards, technology, knowledge or experience, however. The key for the company’s enduring success goes all the way back to Bob’s original dream to transform the customer’s idea into reality. Combining the customer’s ideas with the company’s vision creates an environment that the customer will express to their friends and family.
Thanks to that philosophy, some of the most respected home owners in the area continue to return to Onis Stone, Inc. for their second and third home building natural stone projects.
