Jay was inspired to start Epiphany Kitchens when he had an epiphany of his own. While sitting on a bench eating an ice cream cone, he spotted a "For Lease" sign on the building that would eventually become Epiphany Kitchen's showroom. Jay realized there was a need for high-quality kitchen remodeling at honest and fair prices. Driven by his lifelong passion for renovating homes, Jay founded Epiphany Kitchens in 2006 and has been dedicated to providing beautiful, timeless designs and exceptional work for every customer ever since.
Do it right, or don’t do it at all. Epiphany Kitchens is committed to creating an outstanding customer experience through professional standards and personalized attention. We help our customers through every step of the remodeling process and never compromise on materials, design, or labor. To us, close enough is never good enough.
The kitchen is the heart of the home, meant for bringing together families and friends. Therefore, we want to provide our customers with the kitchen of their dreams, so they can focus on making meals and memories in a functional and beautiful space. Every kitchen remodel starts with your vision, then our designers work with you to turn concepts into reality.

Jay is the president and founder of Epiphany Kitchens. After graduating from Michigan State University, Jay worked as a residential heating and cooling sales rep for Trane, quickly being promoted to sales manager and later starting his own heating and cooling business.

Jay has always been passionate about restoring homes and has flipped 19 homes with Sharon, his wife of 35 years.

Outside of work, Jay loves to spend time with his wife and golf, in that order.

Tony attended the University of Michigan and graduated with a degree in marketing and project management from Oakland University. He has been working in design since he was just 16 years old, but it was in college that he realized the creativity and interactive process of designing homes was more than a job, but a passion. His favorite part about remodeling kitchens and bathrooms is creating a space that is not only beautiful but functional as well.
When Tony is not working, he enjoys spending quality time with his wife and two young daughters. He also competes in drag racing and loves cars almost as much as kitchens.
