The KANDY Story
Prior to starting KANDY, co-founders Kelly and Doug Niessen bought a typical condo with typical floor-to-ceiling windows off the typical living room. The balcony was visible from the entire living area, and it was ugly: a dirty, barren and inhospitable slab of concrete.
As they renovated the inside of their condo, they wanted to take their personal taste and style to the outside. They love the outdoors and spending time outside in a space they love is very important to them. They expected it to be as easy as getting help with closets or blinds, but it wasn’t. After months of research, they found that there were no options that met their standards for quality and taste and nothing that fit within the condo rules and bylaws.
They realized there was a major market gap, and in solving their own condo balcony flooring problem they conceived the idea for a business that would solve this problem for others. They founded KANDY Outdoor Flooring to provide condo owners with the service, quality, and the choices that were not available to them at the time.
CONDO KANDY Balcony Flooring is now:
THE #1 OUTDOOR FLOORING DECK TILE COMPANY IN CANADA!
In addition to working directly with condo owners to expand their home experiences, Condo KANDY also provides balcony flooring en masse through its partnerships with builders and developers of multi-unit residential buildings.
