In the midst of a construction industry slump, Mr. ShowerDoor has opened its third Florida location at 7484 South Tamiami Trail in Sarasota. A national leader in the tub and shower enclosure industry, this company has found a successful niche in an otherwise volatile industry.
With so many home-related businesses struggling, Mr. ShowerDoor is bucking the trend -- having opened another location in response to its ever-increasing popularity. Ever since the Daubmann family -- father Bill, mother Donna, and sons Keith and Douglas -- opened their first Florida Mr. ShowerDoor in Naples in 2003, business has been booming.
"I had planned on retiring in Florida," chuckles Bill Daubmann. He had previously owned and operated two Mr. ShowerDoor locations in Springfield, MA and Hartford, CT before selling them with thoughts of a relaxing Florida retirement. "I suppose I'm just not ready to retire."
The Florida stores -- Naples, Fort Myers and now Sarasota -- are a family affair. Bill and Donna oversee the general operations while Keith, 29, and Douglas, 25, take care of sales, service and installation.
The combination of experience and youthful energy is working exceptionally well. The Daubmann family was honored by The News-Press with a "Best of Southwest Florida Award" in July 2006. In 2004, they won the "Entrepreneur of the Year Award" given by the Economic Development Council of Collier County. High profile projects have included The Trump National Golf Club and the Grand Hyatt New York Hotel.
"Our customers appreciate the ability to browse our showroom and experience the doors as installed," notes Keith. "Likewise, builders love using our showroom to showcase their bath and shower ideas," adds Douglas.
Mr. Shower Door is the exclusive manufacturer and distributor of Luxus shower enclosures, the most respected name in the industry. Manufactured to the highest quality, Luxus produces a full line of product options to fulfill any shower need.
