Our family ran company has humble beginnings starting in 1992. We started out in the construction industry as a basic landscape contractor and even dug our sprinkler trenches by hand! As our skills grew, so did the demand for higher end projects. Over time, we became the premier builder of high end Pools, Landscapes and Outdoor Kitchens in the San Francisco East Bay. Our award winning design/build company is still in operation. www.designedby.com
In 1994 we installed one of the very first built- in bbq grill applications in the San Francisco East Bay. Back then, it was so unique and new that it became known as a “grilling station” instead of the more popular terms today like “bbq island” or “outdoor kitchen”. As more and more people desired to have this in their backyard, we saw the need to become an authorized dealer of outdoor living products and in the Summer of 1997, this became a reality. Over the years, we began to notice an increase in demand from prospective clients for outdoor living spaces. These poured in farther than we could travel. We realized there had to be a more effective way to supply these potential customers with the same premium products that we were using on our projects locally. The light bulb went off!
In 2008, Wholesale Patio Store.com became part of the world wide web! We put together a few computers in a small work space (our garage), installed a couple of phone lines and the next thing you know, Wholesale Patio Store was a major presence in the online marketplace. Within a year, our garage was no longer suitable for the needs of the company and we moved to a corporate facility in Antioch CA. We also noticed people still had a desire to shop local so we renovated the front portion of our corporate office into a retail store in 2010. Within a year we had outgrown that entire location. Our company headquarters are now located in the beautiful revitalized downtown area of Brentwood, CA. Our retail store on the street level is stocked with nearly every item you could imagine for an outdoor environment.
