Bill Hodge, Founder

Bill Hodge, Founder

Bill Hodge began designing and remodeling kitchens and baths in the Greater Cleveland area in 1957. As early as 1975 Bill still worked out of a small carpentry shop, handling the sales and design side of the business while performing the carpentry and product installations himself. In 1980 Bill and his wife opened a small showroom in Lakewood and named it Imperial. In 1982 Imperial moved to its present location on Madison Avenue and expanded the product breadth to a total of five cabinet lines, plumbing products, custom built countertops, and appliances. In the years following, Bill invited sons and grandsons to join him, making Imperial a family business. The watchwords of the business and the manner in which he treated his employees, contractors, suppliers, and especially his clients were to always use "honesty, decency, fair-dealing, and common sense."

Bill, a devout Christian, formed a prison ministry, unselfishly giving thousands of hours over his lifetime witnessing to the less fortunate incarcerated in the County Jail and Juvenile Detention Center. Countless lives of the young men and women whom Bill witnessed to and prayed with were forever changed because of his great works with "Free Indeed Ministries." Bill continued managing Imperial Home Center and doing his prison ministry up to the very end of his life.
