A husband-and-wife dealer for the Overhead Door Co., Mark and Cathy Hunihan, has opened a franchise in Norwalk, Conn. The store is in addition to two other dealerships nearby, in Brookfield and Waterbury. The Norwalk location covers the area from Greenwich to Bridgeport.
Mark has worked in the garage door industry since 1978 and Cathy since 1989. They opened their first Overhead Door franchise in 1994 in Brookfield, and they took over the Waterbury location three years ago. They were contacted recently by the corporate offices about starting a Norwalk store, so they acted. Norwalk had an Overhead store in the past, but it has since separated and become its own company.
The Norwalk location has two full-time employees and provides work for trained and certified technicians.
Based in Lewisville, Texas, Overhead Door features doors made of custom wood, vinyl, aluminum and insulated steel. They offer a variety of designs and can make doors specific to designs, as well.
