Congratulations to the winner of our Love A Local Business September Grant, Bowie Home Improvement, Inc. in Bowie, Maryland!

Established in 1987, Bowie Home Improvement is a full-service home improvement contractor, specializing in bathroom and kitchen remodels. Owners Bill and Beth Schmitt are proud of their team of four, which includes sons-in-law, Daniel Alvarez (lead carpenter) and Michael Flores (website designer).

After growing the business from two employees to as many as ten employees, Bill has seen changes in the home improvement market over the last two years due to the economy. To help bring build more awareness of the company’s large-scale project portfolio, he plans to use the grant toward advertising and hiring a fifth team member.

Bowie Home Improvement joins our other two finalists, Marie’s Bed and Biscuits and Atrium Wellness to be considered for an additional $25,000 grant!
