Designer Kitchens opens in Wintersville

The Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce was a part of a ribbon-cutting ceremony held May 3 for Designer Kitchens located at 514 Main St. in Wintersville. Owners Jeff Aulet and Dave Molesky established JD Home Mgt. LLC in 2015 for the purpose of remodeling homes before selling them. Once the renovations of those homes were completed and posted on Facebook, viewers began noticing the customized kitchens, they said. From there, the two decided to open a retail store. “We never imagined the business would take off like it did. We have a unique approach that allows our customers to be hands-on with designing their kitchen,” Aulet said. Brian Bardelline also is an owner of the business. On hand for the ribbon-cutting ceremony were, from left, Lou Gentile with Vorys Advisors; Joey Chadwick; Alexis McVicker; Bardelline; Aulet; Joyce Ryan-Orlando, chamber ambassador; Molesky; Wintersville Mayor Bob Gale; state Rep. Jack Cera, D-Bellaire; Wintersville Councilman Brad Degenkob, also a chamber ambassador; Wintersville Councilman Randy Spence; Samantha Yanok, chamber ambassador; and Dwayne Jennings, chamber ambassador.
