A FAMILY OPERATED BUSINESS
WE KNOW HOW TO TREAT YOU RIGHT
Hi. my name is Denny. I began installing TV antennas in the fall of 1988. In 2004 I decided it was time for a Denny's Antenna website. My goal was to educate visitors not present them with hype. I tried a few different professional website building companies but quickly found, if you want something done, the way you want it done. you have to do it yourself. I'm not a professional copy writer nor webmaster. But I may have the fastest 2 fingers on a keyboard you have ever seen.
Besides our online service we also operate a statewide installation service here in Michigan, My son Tony and I have installed over 200 antenna systems together as a team in 2019 and hundreds more were installed by our qualified installers. We know what works and what doesn't. We're out in the field recycling inferior antennas and equipment nearly everyday.
Denny's Antenna Service began in 1988. Truthfully, I wanted to earn a little extra income not begin a life long career. The whole thing started slowly but it wasn't long before we were busy. I was having fun and enjoying installing TV antennas. At this point I decided to install TV antennas full time and fore go any other business ventures. This would allow me to focus primarily on Denny's Antenna Service, reduce my work load allowing me more time with my family.
Thirty years have passed and thousands of antennas have been installed and millions of people have visited our website. So what does a 50 year old antenna installer do when he mistakenly thinks he can't install antennas in his 60's? I say "mistakenly thinks" because I'm 65, still going strong and enjoying every minute of it.
In 2005 at the age of 52 the idea came to me. Build a website and fill it full of antenna installation knowledge. Explain, in simple terms how things work. Display quality products, ship the products to any location in the contiguous Unite States and offer outstanding customer support. I didn't know a thing about building a website but I did know about TV antenna reception.
The website is now 15 years old and going strong. I find myself at age 65 wondering, can a person who stays physically fit continue to install antennas and run a website in their 70's? We shall see, because I'm having too much fun to stop now.
A little more about us.
It's been more than 30 years since Denny's Antenna opened doors for business.. How time flies when you're having fun! My oldest son Tony, was 2 years old at the time. He went on his first job with me when he was 7. His first assignment was to crawl into a crawl space where I couldn't fit. He had to go about 20 feet and push a wire up through the floor. He did it flawlessly.
From then on Tony regularly went with me. Of course, It was important to have somewhere to fish along the way. With the customer's permission, he went on his first ( 1 story, nearly flat) roof when he was 8. At this point he was very much becoming a benefit, so I put him on the payroll at $10 a job.
Along the way he received well deserved pay raises. In his senior year of high school he had two part time jobs. Tony continued working at his jobs after he graduated. When he was about 20, he came to us, and said, I want to start installing antennas full time. He certainly had all the proper training and skills. So he began on his own.
In 2016, Tony became the official owner of Denny's Antenna Sales. After 30 years, we were ready to turn over some of the major responsibilities to him. Oh, I'm still hear going strong. Tony and I have installed over 200 antenna systems together in the past 6 months. I'm still here, installing antennas, answering emails, maintaining this website, and answering the phone when needed. I think I'm a good employee! :)
I couldn't be more proud of Tony and the way he operates our business.
Again, I'm not going anywhere, anytime soon. I'm having too much fun to quit.
PS... The youngest son Andy, recently has become a full time antenna installer. I guess it's in the blood. It's great to go out on the job together with him. After about 2 months of "on the job training" Andy was ready to go on his own. I join him when it requires two skilled installers to do the job safely. He's doing great!
