In 1974, Gary Gordon and Richard Grant were good friends and sailing partners who often spent time with friends in an old wine vat used as a wooden hot tub on Mountain Drive. They decided they needed to have one of their own. Young, ambitious and looking to have a good time, they went ahead and drew up plans to build one. It was a success and they began building hot tubs for their friends. And more friends. And friends of friends. Both Gary and Richie suddenly looked around one day and realized they had a business going. Their business became a success and stayed successful. Today, Gary Gordon still runs Gordon & Grant Hot Tubs and Spas in Santa Barbara, California. A second Gordon & Grant location was established in 1990 in Old Town Goleta.
While Redwood hot tubs are continually built onsite in the downtown location and remain a popular option, vertical grain cedar has been added as a more affordable and readily available option for customers who still enjoy the traditional wood spa.
In addition to building and maintaining wooden hot tubs for customers, Gordon & Grant also sells and provides services for various brands of acrylic portable spas, including Jacuzzi®, Marquis®, Sundance® and TidalFit® swim spas. read more
