In February of 1978, Robert and Mary Godziebiewski moved to Traverse City from the Clarkston area of Michigan. They left behind their family and friends and the security of a very successful cabinet shop that Robert and his brother had owned and operated.
What came to Traverse City with them were 22 years of experience in cabinetry, and a few pieces of equipment. Their two sons Allen and Gary also moved north and joined the family business. Allen has since moved on to a successful career with a national cabinet company. Gary who started in manufacturing and installation is now the president and co-owner.
In 1988 CBR moved their custom cabinetry shop from a 1500 sq. foot building to a modern 6000 sq. foot manufacturing facility. Since then it has doubled in size to 12000 sq. feet and new equipment has been regularly added to maintain their high standard of quality and service. Among their numerous residential projects they have also completed volume jobs for clients such as the Inn at Bay Harbor in Petoskey, The Homestead in Glen Arbor, Crystal Mountain Resort in Thompsonville and Grand Traverse Resort in Traverse City.
Three decades later Cabinets by Robert has a full staff complete with custom cabinetry builders, a professional sales team, and experienced designers. CBR will continue to offer its unique blend of custom design, quality craftsmanship, and outstanding personal service to the Northern Michigan area for years to come.
Their showroom at 2774 Garfield Avenue has undergone numerous renovations and improvements. It is currently one of the finest showrooms in Northern Michigan, and displays many different styles, colors, and designs for both residential and commercial cabinetry.
