About Us


Andrew Hoffman began a humble shop on 405 N. Paca Street in Baltimore. His shop back then specialized in upholstery, draperies, flags and on occasion, awnings.


Andrew had fantastic success on the awning side of the business and he decided to shift his focus by specializing in awnings alone, and that’s how our proud company has stayed for 100 years and counting.

Andrew’s son John Sr. (second generation), entered into the business and then John Jr., (third generation) also came into the family business shortly after serving in the Air Force.

John Sr. and John Jr, worked side by side for many years as John Jr. learned every aspect of the business. Under the 3 generations of Hoffmans, A. Hoffman Awning became a household name and brand in Baltimore. John’s Jr’s theme song was a common local radio hit on WCBM radio.
