When the founders of Hometown Window & Door Company were searching for a name for their business adding “hometown” to the title seemed like the right fit. After all, the four co-owners, Darren Peck, Dan Hanlin, Mitch Brown, and Andy Brown, have deep local roots that they have continued to grow with their own families. These men are passionate about their Hoosier hometown and strongly committed to supporting the community through their business. The owners have continued to use their resources and abilities to give back and enrich their community.
Scott Dorrell, Hometown Window & Door Sales Manager commends the owners’ local contributions.
“Our people grew up here and live here. Our owners know their neighbors and are part of the community. They have a vested interest in increasing the value and happiness of their hometown,” says Dorrell.
Hometown Window & Door continually looks for opportunities to support community events. The list of local organizations and events that Hometown Window & Door sponsors runs long.
For example, Hometown Window & Door is one of the sponsors for the upcoming Lights over Morse Lake Festival. This four-day festival, spanning from July 1-4, includes a carnival, music, parade, fireworks, and countless other activities. The festival is aimed at promoting the local economy and supporting local charities and groups. Major funding for the program costs is paid for from major business sponsorships like Hometown Window & Door.
Additionally, Hometown Window & Door is the headlight sponsor for the summer Cool Creek concert series. The company also contributes to other local events including the Indianapolis-Carmel Children’s Festival, Indiana Peony Festival, Potters Bridge Fall Festival, and the Hamilton County Fair.
Don Nicholls, Resource Development Specialist for Hamilton County Parks and Recreation offers appreciation for Hometown Window & Door’s contribution to Hamilton County.
“Hamilton County Parks greatly values the support of Hometown Window and Door Company, as title sponsor of two very popular community events in 2022 – The Cool Creek Summer Concert Series and the Potter’s Bridge Fall Festival,” says Nicholls. “With Hometown Window & Door Company’s generous support, the department is able to maintain a level of event quality that the public has come to expect from their county parks department.”
Dorrell expresses delight in the collaboration.
“Partnering with Cool Creek is an opportunity to have fun while giving back,” says Dorrell. “We believe in the events that we are a part of and think they are important.”
Furthermore, Hometown Window & Door contributes to the Noblesville revitalization projects. The company is working to revive downtown Noblesville’s charm and historic nature. As long-time Hamilton County residents, these efforts are important to the Hometown Window & Door team.
In their personal lives, the owners find many ways to give back. Peck and Hanlin sponsor a Little League team in Westfield. They also have sponsored a golf hole at Harbour Tree Golf Club in partnership with the Noblesville Boys and Girls Club.
Peck has served on the boards of Prevail, Noblesville Main Street, Fifty Club, and Harbour Trees. He has attended Noblesville First United Methodist Church for 50 years and been married to his wife Monica for 23 years.
Hanlin and his wife Michelle are active members at Saint Maria Goretti Parish for over two decades. The pair are also members of the Bridgewater Gold Club. Hanlin also serves as a volunteer pilot for Angel MedFlight, an air ambulance service.
Dorrell says Hometown Window & Door will continue to pour into the community while standing by its commitment to serve homeowners well.
“We understand replacing windows and doors is a significant project and homeowners want someone they can trust,” says Dorrell. “These (owners) are members of the community and offer a high level of quality.”
Hometown Window & Door provides a variety of services and quality products. The Hometown team installs new windows and repairs storm-damaged windows. Hometown provides full-service installation of their products. Customers receive free estimates from Hometown when considering how to move forward.
“They come out and give quotes, no questions asked,” says Scott Dorrell, Hometown Window & Door Sales Manager.
