The charm of a company evolving from door-to-door sales to international recognition and status as a local “brand name” is lost on no one. The history of Color Marble is just such a story. In 1991, Jemmy You and Susana Jeng founded the company and began taking their passion for tile around the block. Twenty-five years later, their son, Andrew You, runs the purveyor of marble, granite, quartzite and more, and he has stayed true to his parents’ mantra: quality. “We take procurement very seriously,” he says. “We take our time to find the absolute best blocks, slabs, tiles and more.” In close contact with a trusted group of architects and designers, he and his team stay abreast of what’s coming next in design, and ensure their suppliers find exactly what is needed. It’s no wonder local companies and homeowners alike choose to buy from Color Marble rather than importing product.
