Home Depot Trademarks

The Home Depot is a multinational home improvement corporation based in America. They specialize in construction products, appliances, and services alongside home improvement kits and tools. The Home Depot offers several additional lines featuring soft furnishings, decorative items, and home accessories.

The Home Depot was founded by Arthur Blank, Ron Brill, Pat Farrah, Bernard Marcus, and Ken Langone in 1978. The idea was to build home-improvement superstores larger than any existing home-improvement chains. Ken Langone was an investment banker and helped them secure the necessary capital.

The first stores opened in metropolitan Atlanta in 1976, then expanded to Florida and Dallas. From there, the chain grew all over the US and beyond.

As of 2022, the company has almost 500,000 employees and 150+ billion in revenue. The company remains headquartered in Cobb County, Georgia. It operates several big-box format stores across the US (including outlying islands and Puerto Rico), all provinces of Canada, and all Mexican States. The MRO (Maintenance, Repair, and Operations) company Interline Brands was acquired by The Home Depot and is now called The Home Depot Pro, and it manages 70 distribution centers.

Up to 15% of Home Depot’s sales are online, and a significant minority of the company’s sales are related to DIY, plumbing, and kitchen installations.

Wrapping up

Intellectual property may be worth more than physical property. To protect your intellectual property, you need to register trademarks. Registering a trademark with the USPTO gives you a legal claim over it, allowing you to preserve your unique branding.

The Home Depot owns more home improvement stores than any other US brand and enjoys billions of dollars of revenue; the Home Depot trademarks listed here could be worth millions alone. It’s no wonder that The Home Depot is a prolific trademark owner, with nearly 1,000 trademarks as of 2022.
