About Us: History of Rolling Sharpening Stone
After working through the ranks for sixteen years to become president of a successful computer consulting firm in Los Angeles, CA, Darryl Hoffman did what many small business owners do.
He decided that corporate life was no longer for him, and ventured into business ownership for himself.
In 1995 he joined his wife in Fort Collins, CO, where she was studying to become a veterinarian.
Darryl took his passion for food and the place where culinary magic happens daily, the kitchen, and started the first mobile knife sharpening and chef’s supply sales business in Denver, Colorado.
Word quickly spread about Rolling Sharpening Stone, and Darryl added two trucks and employees in two years.
Darryl is now the president of Rolling Sharpening Stone and a partner in the franchise’s product distribution company, The Knife Guys. The first Rolling Sharpening Stone franchise was sold in 2001.
