New Closets by Design franchise location opens for business in Kansas City

The first Kansas City location of Closets by Design, a national custom closet and storage remodeling company, is now open for business  – bringing new jobs and home organization help to the area.

The new Closets by Design franchise is owned and operated by Jenny and Cliff Wohleb, who relocated to KCK to the opportunity to open their own business.

Jenny is an Air Force veteran and recently retired teacher. Cliff is a former design engineer and business development executive. Located in the Freeway Industrial Park, the 10,000 square foot facility at 3073 Merriam Lane is where the couple and their newly hired team will design and manufacture the custom organization pieces.

After spending so many years helping others achieve their dreams of business success, becoming an entrepreneur himself seemed like the natural progression for Cliff.

“We looked at several business opportunities, but I fell in love with Closets by Design – so much so that we decided to relocate from Dallas/Fort Worth where a franchise already existed – to Kansas City which did not,” says Cliff Wohleb, co-owner of Closets by Design Kansas City. “The manufacturing model and commitment to customer service resonated with me.”

The Wohlebs also share Closets by Design mission which for more than 35 years has been to create beautiful and functional closets, garage organizers, home offices, mudrooms, pantries, and more to replace stressful, disorganized spaces in customer’s homes.

“There are many homes in our area that are older. The closets in these homes are small or not practical for the needs of people now,” says Jenny Wohleb, co-owner of Closets by Design Kansas City. “Let’s face it, we all have more stuff. We can help make closets and other areas of the home more functional for people.”

Once pandemic restrictions ease, the couple is  looking to get more involved with the local community through charity work and civic engagement. “We have been given such a warm welcome here. Our plan is to get out into the community, give back, and get involved in local civic organizations,” adds Cliff.

Keeping it in the KCK is important for the Wohlebs. They have already hired almost a dozen people from the local community to start, and plan to add more staff as the business grows. Materials for the projects will also be sourced locally.
