History of Reborn Cabinets

  • The Move to California

    Vinny and Brenda Nardo sell everything they cannot fit inside their green station wagon or the trailer, and leave New York City. The couple head West seeking a better place to earn an honest living and raise their sons Vince, 5, and Anthony, 3.

  • A Company is Born

    Vinny decides he to start his own business doing a “new” method of cabinetry—Refacing. Refacing was, and remains to be, a faster and more-affordable way to restore cabinets. He and Brenda found Reborn Cabinets in Anaheim with nothing but a 1,200-square-foot shop and a $300 table saw.

    Reborn Cabinets grows quickly, filling three separate locations. The Nardos decide to make a move, and open a new 10,000 square foot store and showroom.

Family Story

In 1974, Vinny and Brenda Nardo packed their two young sons and all of their possessions into their green station wagon and a 22-foot trailer. The young family set out across the country in search of a better life. The Nardo sons, Vince, 5, and Anthony, 3, slept in bunk beds in the family trailer while Vinny took on odd jobs, specializing in woodworking, here and there.

Six months later, the Nardo’s arrived in California and settled in a trailer park across the street from Disneyland. Initially, Vinny took jobs at local cabinetry companies. Vinny brought a “new” method of cabinetry to these companies: Refacing. Refacing was, and remains to be, a faster and more-affordable way to restore cabinets. This new technique was so exciting and very profitable for the companies that Vinny worked for, that the couple saw and opportunity, so Vinny and Brenda decided to try to make a go of running a cabinetry company of their own.

Reborn Cabinets was founded in 1983 with a $300 table saw and a 1,200 squarefoot office. Today, Reborn is still completely family owned and operated…And thriving! In addition to the leadership of Vinny and Brenda, Vince Nardo (President) and Anthony Nardo (CFO) have expanded Reborn Cabinets to four locations, including their 10,000 foot Anaheim Showroom and manufacturing center. Two more California locations are in development in San Diego and Bay areas.
