Meet the Team

Kent Shepherd
Owner/President
Kent and his wife Kathie have been in business since 1990. He was born and raised in Spanish Fork so he can strike up a conversation with just about anyone! His wife has often said that a 15 min grocery trip, can turn into 30 mins if he goes with her. His parents owned Shepherds Shoe Repair on main street in Spanish Fork also. Kent is well known and respected in the community. Before he bought the business he installed all types of flooring, so buying a carpet store was right down their alley. In the years since they bought the store, the industry has grown with so many types of flooring and they felt it was to their benefit to expand and offer a larger variety to their customers.
Kathie Shepherd
Owner/Vice President
26 years ago when Kathie and Kent got the opportunity to buy a carpet store in Spanish Fork, and decided to keep it in Spanish Fork. It was a great choice, because over the years this area has grown and Shepherds Carpet with it. They are very loyal to the Utah County area. Kathie has an associate's degree in accounting, so starting a business was the perfect opportunity to put her education to work.
