In 1975, Jay Kogan's parents opened up a store that was literally a hall of frames—just a small store stacked with thousands of frames. At the time, they had no idea that that tiny corridor would expand to 12 locations throughout the greater Phoenix area, all still run by the Kogan family. Today, their shops have more than 4,500 custom frame options along with mats of all colors and textures, as well as seven glazing choices and expert assembly. They can answer framing questions and frame everything from documents and artwork to posters and small 3-D objects such as sports memorabilia and very still grandmothers.
When they custom-produce frames, the family cuts their mats exactly, miters frame corners precisely, and installs flawless glass. Or, since the stores' walls are lined with ready-made frames, customers can walk in and find what they're looking for quickly. Since installing framed art is an art unto itself, they also offer hanging services with an eye for placement and ability to install in difficult spaces.
Mr. Duke started his self-named photography business more than 60 years ago, but that doesn?t mean his company?s services are old-timey. One of the team?s specialties is photo restoration, where ultramodern computer software helps them produce crystal-clear images from scraped, creased, or faded originals. Of course, the primary objective of the business is to help families create new memories, which they do with Duke Photography?s signature portrait sessions held at studios in Phoenix or Tempe. At the Phoenix location, photographers work both inside the studio and out, as they?ve cultivated a garden adjacent to the studio that serves a lush backdrop for shoots. The Tempe studio?s outdoor space is surrounded by lakes that provide a tranquil setting to capture snapshots of families. Sessions are open for any occasion, though the team at Duke Photography specializes in portraiture for families, businesses, weddings, high-school seniors, and sports teams.
