Gary Hurst, Owner

Gary Hurst is the co-owner of Freedom Flooring. He currently lives in Reinholds with his wife and four children. He began his career in the flooring industry when he was 17 years old. He started assisting the warehouse manager at a local flooring store as a summer job. He never left the flooring industry. He has extensive experience in all aspects of the industry including installation of all types of products, sales, customer service, and business management. What he enjoys the most is taking an old floor that needs extensive repairs and using his experience to give the customer a structurally sound, and beautiful floor.

In his free time, Gary enjoys spending time with his wife and four children or playing basketball and golf. Gary also enjoys serving as a deacon at Bethesda Christian Fellowship in Ephrata, PA.

Darwin Hurst, Owner

Darwin started working with Gary in the flooring industry 14 years ago. While studying at Millersville University pursuing a degree in secondary education, he helped Gary over the summers to pay his way through college. From there, he learned how to successfully install various types of flooring. He continued to work with Gary over the summers while he went on to start his teaching career. While he enjoyed working at Hamburg Area High School as a Technology Education teacher, he had a dream of being a business owner that wouldn’t leave his mind.

After five years of teaching, he left his job to pursue that dream. Over the next few years, he worked at area flooring stores and operated as an independent installer which helped him gain experience and knowledge in various aspects of the industry.

In the spring of 2018, Gary and Darwin decided to combine their experience and dream of being business owners to start Freedom Flooring. They are excited to operate Freedom Flooring as a business that focuses on relationships while improving homes and lives.

He enjoys spending time with his wife of ten years, Krista, as well as his three children, Emerson, Sullivan, and Aniston. They attend Ephrata Community Church and enjoy being connected to and serving their community.
