John and Doug Howard Recall Early Business Years with their Dad

Father’s Day was this past weekend. Did you do anything special to honor Dad? Let us know in the comments below and you might win a gift card.

Most people who are introduced to Howard Brothers are actually suprised to hear that there are two actual Howards… who are brothers. We actually are family owned and they still are a MAJOR part of our day to day business. But a lot of people don’t know the full history of Howard Brothers. It began with John and Doug’s Dad… Ed.

Most of Howard Brothers employees’ have great memories of Ed Howard around the stores. Recently, I took a few minutes to video John and Doug Howard about the history of Howard Brothers. From Gas Station to Grocery Store to Hardware Store to Power Equipment Dealer to Multiple Locations… there are a lot of memories that we have. The values and work ethic which were exemplified in Ed were definitely transferred to John and Doug, but then have also been taught to many of Howard’s employees who have been with the company 10, 20, even 30+ years.

It’s a really long video (I really do need to chop this up more), but¬†there are lots of powerful thoughts around growth, change, values, family, customer service, past, present and future.

Happy Father’s Day Everyone!

John and Doug Howard
