Diversifying the Family Business


“The product is tested and tried and true. We said, why not just go with something that’s a known instead of an unknown.”

Mark Marquess, CEO of Riverwood Homes, and Taylor Marquess, President of Riverwood Homes, are Epcon Franchise Builders in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Mark started building homes over 40 years ago and Taylor jumped into the family business nearly a decade ago. They’ve long been a production builder for first-time home buyers, but saw Epcon’s 55+ market opportunity as a way to offer their market a time-tested product it didn’t have.
