K&N Carpet has been in the family since 1968. The business originally started in a side building next to the Hockemeyer's family home. In 1973, K&N Carpet moved into a renovated old barn on US 27 South in Fort Wayne, IN and is still at that current location (For those who can remember, that would be just four miles south of the old Southtown Mall). Todd & Carla Hockemeyer, a proud second generation owner of K&N Carpet, took ownership in 1996. In 2000, K&N Carpet joined a partnership with Mohawk and became the first Mohawk Floorscapes Dealer in the Fort Wayne area. We was recognized as the Ohio Valley region Floorscapes Dealer of the year and for multiple years we have been chosen as the runner up for the Readers' Choice award. We have recently remodeled our showroom to display more products from a variety of different manufacturers and distributors, consisting of carpet, hardwood, ceramic, laminate, vinyl, LVT and rugs.
Not only is K&N Carpet locally owned and and family operated for over 48 years, we are also a member of the Better Business Bureau and Home Building Association. We are very family oriented, involved in the local community, schools and churches. We have sponsored a variety of organizations and have even provided the "red carpet" that was rolled out at the beginning of each Wizards game, now known as the Tin Caps.
