Now in its third generation, Midwestern carpet company B & B Carpet Service is truly a success story built on family values.
Bob Sherwood — whose father was also a carpet layer — began his trade in California. Gifted with an entrepreneurial spirit, he relocated to Nebraska in 1989 to establish himself, working from his home while building up his carpet installation business.
Just three years later, Bob Sherwood would hang a shingle outside his first Doniphan store location. With flooring becoming a family tradition, it was only natural for his son Josh to join B & B Carpet Service, marking yet a new generation of ownership for B & B.
“My Dad installed carpet for years,” Josh Sherwood said. “[And his] dad was a carpet layer in California.”
Success soon enabled renovation, expansion and new quarters as the family purchased a former hardware store, converted it to a new showroom and eventually found its current West Plum Street location.
Nowadays, B & B is the pre-eminent local Mohawk dealer. The brand is a “huge selling point to community members,” Josh stated. “We also do tile, wood and vinyl and vinyl planks, mainly selling and installation.”
“We knock it out of the park when it comes to customer service,” he added.
Now firmly rooted locally, the family is highly community-oriented. Bob Sherwood attends every high school athletic event that he can. His son commented that Bob “is a huge sports guy. You can catch him on the sideline on almost all the high school games.” Bob even does statistics for the local team.
Not only does B & B enjoy its community ties, but it also reflects local agriculture — specializing in a type of carpeting manufactured from corn.
“Having carpet made from corn in a state like [Nebraska] gives our customers a huge sense of pride knowing they are using resources that this state has been built on,” Josh Sherwood said.
B & B sends only its own staff to do all on-site work so customers are assured of quality. Putting the customer and community first remains its tradition, alongside high-quality products delivery and installation. Call B & B at 402-965-0223, visit the store at 101 W.
