The Empire Man
Part blue collar superhero and part pure entertainment, the Empire Man character has come to represent great value, world-class customer care, and next day installation to generations of home furnishing and home improvement consumers.
Introduced in 1977 as a live action character and later adapted into a popular animated persona, the Empire Man has grown to become a cultural icon.
The Empire Man has been seen internationally in commercials and other media, has spawned a line of popular bobblehead dolls, is featured as a crowd favorite, and inspired the Chicago Cubs to proclaim an official “Empire Day” at legendary Wrigley Field.
Recently, Empire has launched two new video sites - www.empirecarpet.tv and www.empiretoday.tv to showcase the history of Empire's popular video commercials.
