The theory of keeping as much “in house” as possible has served the D'Addario family well. The company owns a tremendous printing facility today, complete with color Heidelberg presses, that share the building across the street from the main factory in Farmingdale with Evans Drumheads. Most of the company's marketing, packaging artwork, and print ads are conceived and executed by its own marketing and creative staff, which has brought the company more cost-efficient and successful campaigns time and time again.

But D’Addario’s unbounded success is also due in part to its worldwide distribution and dealer networks. The company markets its products in the United States through wholesale distributors and over 5,400 retail music stores. In addition, the export markets are handled by 120 distributors in 101 countries.

Tim Surrett and Buddy Melton both proudly endorse D'Addario strings.

Set in the heart of West Asheville, Isis Theater was built in 1937 as a single screen movie house and screened its last film in 1957. We as a family revamped the theater to what is now Kitchen 743 @ Isis Music Hall. A place to catch an intimate dinner and a show, or a rock show with 450 other people.
This journey has been, and continues to be, an interesting and memorable experience. Throughout the process of creating Isis, folks have asked a number of times for us to describe what exactly Isis is. We each answer this a little differently, but in the end we expect the food and music to a be a reflection of that which we, our friends, and family enjoy. All the while, our ultimate goal being to create a space that inspires conversation, camaraderie, energy, and has great food and even better music.

We hope you will come join us for dinner, a concert, or a cocktail. We look forward to seeing you.
