©2016 by The Phenom Factory. Proudly created with

Christine Makosky (Baker) and her team had a vision to help our local players become phenoms. This area has always produced great talent, and The Phenom Factory hopes to provide those players with a training facility worthy of their talents.

Work hard and have fun, two mantras Christine lives by, are at the foundation of everything Team Phenom does. A lot of the demo and painting were done by friends and family, two very important things to The Phenom Factory. Getting ready for the public was a tough journey, but it was more than worth it. There were a lot of long nights and early mornings involved to get it to where we are today, and we hope EVERY customer has a phenomenal experience EVERY time they visit The Phenom Factory!
