Client Profile: ProSource Wholesale

When Dave Grande took over as the owner of ProSource Wholesale of Indianapolis, he had no experience in the commercial and residential renovation industry. But he hit the ground running and helped the franchise business continue to grow as one of North America’s largest trade-only wholesale suppliers for commercial and home improvement projects.

Established in 1991, ProSource boasts more than 140 showrooms across the U.S. and Canada. Grande owns the franchise rights to the entire metro Indianapolis area, overseeing three showrooms that offer flooring, kitchen and bath products for builders, remodelers, real estate agents and other trade professionals.

After 28 years as a manufacturer’s representative in the machining industry, Dave took a risk and jumped onboard the ProSource team, buying the first north Indianapolis location from his wife’s former neighbor in the spring of 2005.

Tom Sponsel immediately sprung to Grande’s mind when he was in the process of financially positioning himself to purchase the location.

“Tom and I go way back,” Grande said. “We went to Cathedral High School together. He was the first guy I called, and I’m so glad I did. Sponsel CPA Group was extremely instrumental in helping us acquire the business. Their relationship with the local banks persuaded people to take a chance and give us the loans we needed to start.”

After overcoming the economic downturn of the housing industry in the mid-2000s, Grande went on to open two more Indianapolis locations, one of which is currently managed by his son.

Sponsel CPA Group is proud to play a role in helping Grande run this growing family business.
