Origin Of The HomeWetBar Name And Brand

The HomeWetBar story starts in 2001 with a bar Keith built while in college at Oklahoma State University. Every weekend friends and family would come over and admire his redwood bar complete with a see-through bottle cap top, liquor cabinet, refrigerator, and fish tank in the front. Soon people were asking for plans on how they could build their own home bars. After countless people asking about the plans, he decided to formally draw the plans up and open a small bar plans site on the internet to sell them; he named it HomeWetBar.com. Throughout the rest of his college career he sold the plans on the internet for extra spending money. A couple of years went by, and he graduated from college with dual degrees in Marketing and MIS, leaving Stillwater to pursue a management training program at a new job in Oklahoma City, OK.

After about a year of the management program, things were going well, and Keith had worked his way up into management. Then one evening, inspiration hit. If dozens of people were ordering these bar plans from him, didn't they need accessories too? After all, they were building bars in their homes and would need supplies. So he went to work in his spare time, and a few months later in September of 2004, HomeWetBar.com was reborn as a full e-commerce site. 

It Started With A Single Apartment

Keith started the ecommerce business slow, only selling a few items out of his closet in his one-bedroom apartment, but he soon needed more space and moved into a two-bedroom apartment. Not long after that he had filled his new “warehouse” (second bedroom) with items, and all of the products and boxes soon started overflowing into his living room. Still only working on HomeWetBar.com part-time during the evening and early-morning hours, he realized he no longer could work 60+ hours a week at his main job and then spend his evenings and mornings working his second job at HomeWetBar.com. He knew he had to make a decision. So he took the leap and left his management position with his full-time employer and went to work on HomeWetBar.com full time. A few months later, he moved the business to a 2,800-sq. ft warehouse, where the business really took off. Shortly thereafter he found himself hiring new team members to help with orders, customer service, and the day-to-day operations, all the while adding hundreds of new products. Then, in 2008 HomeWetBar outgrew that warehouse and moved into a larger 7,500 sq ft. warehouse, but that location was quickly filled up as well. 

Our Personalized Gifts Focus

In 2008 we changed our focus to personalized gifts. We kept the name HomeWetBar so our loyal customers could recognize us, but our specialty changed to personalized gifts. We added our first production machinery in 2008 which we continued to expand year after year. Then in 2012 our facilities moved to the heart of Oklahoma City at 425 E Hill Street, into a 32,000 sq ft historical 1950s building HomeWetBar fully which we renovated in 2012 and again in 2020 and 2021 to expand capacity.

Finally, in 2022 additional storage and production facilities were added nearby to ensure we can meet our customers needs. 425 E Hill St. Oklahoma City, OK is where the business continues to grow today, fueled by the passion the HomeWetBar team shares for creating extraordinary gifts.
