Details for It is with great pleasure to announce

Updated

It is with great pleasure to announce that Discount Garage
Doors (DGD) has acquired KC Garage Doors & Openers of
Inverness. Both companies have provided Citrus County with
outstanding service for decades and DGD will continue to
provide the same level of excellence to which KC Garage
Door customers have received over the past 35 years.
KC Garage Doors was started in 1985 by Bob McCollam, who
at the time worked at Lowe’s Home Improvement store when
they were in what is now the Key Training Center building.
Bob was selling garage door openers to customers, and with
no garage door companies in the area to install them, Bob
began doing so after work. Bob quickly saw a need and took
the leap of faith and began KC, which he named after his
daughter Kristy and wife Claudia. Bob ran KC for 17 years
until his retirement in 2002, at which time he passed the torch
down to his son-in-law George Kapiton. George had been
working for Bob for 7 years and transitioned into his new role
as President seamlessly. Sadly, Bob passed away last year on
October 11th with his family by his side.
Shortly after Bob’s passing, George decided it was time for
him to pursue his passion of airboat tours, which you can
experience at All American Airboat Tours, and launches out of
the boat ramp at the Cove Restaurant on Hwy 44. George
caters to customers looking for high-speed thrill rides for up
to 6 passengers rather than the “tour bus” sightseeing airboat
rides most are accustomed to. DGD is looking forward to
working with George during his transition and wish him the
best of luck and are eager to experience one of his famous
rides!
DGD was founded in 2002 by long-time Citrus County
resident Jack Dickerson. George and Jack graduated Citrus
High School together in 1994, often spending their weekends
hunting and fishing together. Jack had been working in the
industry for several years and decided to give it a go at his
own business. DGD quickly grew due to their excellent customer service, extremely high quality parts, longest warranties
and 7 day a week emergency service at no additional charge.
DGD has now grown into a company of 52 hard working
employees, servicing 21 counties from Gainesville to Naples,
as well as Charleston, South Carolina. Even with the large
footprint the company now services, Citrus County is still
considered home to Jack and DGD.
DGD was voted Best of the Best Gold Winner yet again for
2021 for Citrus County, as well as Hernando, Pasco, Pinellas
and Hillsborough. DGD will continue providing the same
level of service that the residents of Citrus County, Central
Florida and Charleston have come to expect over the past two
decades. DGD specializes in replacing broken springs,
quieting noisy doors, all repairs and new installations for
garage doors and automatic openers, as well as installations
of sliding and automatic screens for garage doors and lanais.
Look for their yellow and blue trucks and cars and give their
happy employees a wave when you see them. DGD can be
reached at 637-5800, www.DGDoors.com or you can visit
their main office & showroom at 7293 Sunshine Grove Rd in
Brooksville.
