And so it began, in 1987 Grandy & Associates was formed. Over the next decade, steady and continual growth occurred and Grandy established themselves as a credible training company in the industry.
Then in 2005, Tom crossed paths with Bill Kinnard. Tom’s business model had been a passion and calling that tugged at Bill for years. And through a series of interactions, Bill joined Grandy and together, they continued to develop and expand the company.
In 2012, Bill approached Tom and expressed his desire to purchase the company from Tom. Shortly afterward, an agreement was reached and the ownership structure was realigned, and the corporate headquarters was moved to Green Bay Wisconsin.
At this location, Bill directs operations and strategy and Tom remains fully on board working out his office in Owensboro, Kentucky.
In 2018 Grandy & Associates made a major investment in our online training abilities. We added a full production studio enabling us to conduct live online training as well as high quality On Demand training lessons.
2021 saw Grandy & Associates make a major revision to our industry leading Labor Pricing software. The update involved both a name change and a shift to an online platform. The new Planning For Profit Software will serve Grandy’s customers for years to come.
With the original vision of Tom well intact, combined with the leadership of Bill and a committed and talented team, Grandy & Associates is well poised to continue its journey as an industry leader in business training.
