About Hobby Lobby

Today, Hobby Lobby is considered a leader in the arts and crafts industry.

Hobby Lobby Stores Inc., located in Oklahoma City, OK, started as an extension of Greco Products, a miniature picture frames company founded in a garage by David Green in 1970. Hobby Lobby officially began operations on August 3, 1972, with a mere 300 square feet of retail space, and the family-owned business has been growing ever since.

Hobby Lobby is listed as a major private corporation in Forbes and Fortunes list of America’s largest private companies, and our company carries no long-term debt. Our other Green family-affiliated companies headquartered in Oklahoma City include Mardel and Hemispheres.
