ENJOY THIS EPISODE: On this 75th edition of the podcast, Matt Grana of Grand Frame Inc. is my guest. Matt & his family have been in business for over 40 years enhancing our photography experiences. Capturing that special moment, in time, is something we all wish to do with our pictures. It’s Grand Frame, and their many different services and expertise, that puts our photos over the top.
Gary Grana, Matt’s Dad, started the business over 40 years ago in Niles. At the age of 17, Gary was a high school art student with a passion to hand craft frames. In his junior year Gary told his parents he wanted to start his own framing business. With a $3,500 loan, and a dream, Grand Frame Inc. was founded.
By the age of 3, Matt Grana had built his first frame at the store. With his Dad’s work ethic and special talents, Matt absorbed the traits, he needed to carry on his Dad’s business. Excelling at providing high quality craftsman ship and serivce for his customers has always been the most important aspect of their business. So much so, Grand Frame stands by their work with a lifetime guarantee on their products.
Changing With The Times…
