See how Storey Kenworthy evolved since its founding in 1936.

We are Local.

Whether serving on a Board of Directors, swinging a hammer, or mentoring at-risk teenagers, our employees are involved in their communities. We are veterans, fundraisers, caretakers, and volunteers.

Each year, Storey Kenworthy donates directly to non-profit organizations in our communities. Beginning in 2015, Storey Kenworthy has brought together the philanthropic power of our customers, our vendors, and our employees to raise funds for Iowa-based non-profits.



Through our family of companies, we provide quality products, services, and experiences to meet our customers’ unique needs. Together, we provide an engaging work culture to inspire team members’ contributions and to create value in the communities we serve!


We are the trusted statewide leader creating innovative solutions driving ultimate customer experiences.
