The owners began their Ben Franklin Variety store on May 29, 1975 with 5 employees. This was the same week that Bill Gates started Microsoft in Redmond. In late 1979, after a year of tremendous growth in sales with no improvements in profits, the decision was made to enter what was then the still fledgling craft business.

The business became an entertainment, activity-driven business dedicated to outstanding customer service and innovation. They currently carry a full line of crafting products including art supplies, paper crafts, fabric & yarn, craft supplies, bead & jewelry supplies, picture framing, floral, and home decor.

H&N International, today a leading global genetics and service company successfully serving the world’s egg layer markets with best-of-breed parent stock, was founded by Arthur and Mary Heisdorf in 1945. Genetics is about ingenuity and data, tons of data over decades. Heisdorf was a pioneer, not only in his groundbreaking invention of reciprocal breeding, but also in deploying modern information technology. And decades before Bill Gates started Microsoft in Redmond in 1975 on the area of a former H&N hatchery, it was Arthur Heisdorf using modern computing power, albeit from IBM, in his genetic work! And with Heisdorf’s egg layer birds starting to take markets outside the USA by storm also modern computing technology entered the farms, laboratories and offices. Today, H&N International continues to be a leading brand also in farming software: H&Ns digital farming assistance KAI puts control over layer farming and egg production into the hands of the farmers.
