Few names are as synonymous with RC mail order as A Main Hobbies, now known as AMain.com Performance Sports and Hobbies. Built from owner Kendall Bennett’s garage in 2004 into the mega giant multi-hobby outlet it has become today, AMain is the American Dream come to life in a 60,000 square foot warehouse with two retail outlets.
Several weeks ago, Kendall and the A Main team rolled out an all new website, a new name and a new logo to reactions that were certainly, how do we say this, as passionate as they were critical. We caught up with Kendall recently to ask him a variety of questions about his company’s new site launch, where they are headed, and just why on Earth they changed their logo and website in the midst of such a successful run.
