Where the Years Have Gone
Over 30 years ago our founder, Jim Whisenand had a 'rock solid' dream of supplying the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex with the highest quality stone and landscape materials. His dream began literally in a deep hole, where he quarried West Texas Sandstone supplying homeowners and homebuilders with quality natural stone products.
After years of quarrying stone, Whisenand decided to close the quarrying operation and concentrate on his 3-acre retail yard on the East side of Fort Worth. Here Jim and a team of extraordinary employees worked to supply homeowners, landscapers, and homebuilders with the same quality stone that they had been quarrying for many years.
After some years at the 3-acre retail location, Whiz-Q began to burst at the seams, demanding a much larger location. In 1994, the Whiz-Q family moved its operation 1 mile south to its present day location. Now with 8-acres to expand, Whiz-Q began to blossom into a full service stone and landscape supplier. In 2005, Whiz-Q began to feel the seams stretching once again with products overflowing its 8-acre facility. This prompted Whiz-Q to acquire the adjacent 14-acres next door for a total of 22-acres.
Today, Whiz-Q Stone is one of the largest stone yards in the state of Texas offering homeowners and contractors the highest quality natural stone, hardscape, landscape, waterscape and outdoor living products. Although founder Jim is now retired, the Whisenand family still operates the business with quality in mind and customer service at heart.
For the past 30 years Whiz-Q Stone has had the opportunity to serve its customers with pride by offering the same quality products and the very best customer service the company had been originally founded on. Being a company that is truly family-owned and operated, Whiz-Q Stone has remained the superior natural stone and landscape supplier in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex for over 30 years.
