Top Rail Fence Naperville hosts grand opening event at local Batfest

Local owners Mark and Lisa Johns want their business to be a positive force in the community by creating safer neighborhoods and providing jobs

CHICAGO, Oct. 25, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Top Rail Fence, the on-time professionals in fence design, quality, installation and service, will celebrate the grand opening of its Naperville, Illinois, location with a booth at the Batfest event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 28 in downtown Batavia, Illinois.

Top Rail Fence Naperville owners Mark and Lisa Johns said the team will have games and prizes for the kids who visit their booth and will showcase the company's fencing samples for the adults.

The couple said they want their Top Rail Fence location to be seen as a positive force in the Naperville area.

"I've always nurtured a passion for craftsmanship, design, and creating tangible, lasting construction projects," Mark Johns said. "This venture offers a direct avenue for me to channel that passion into a thriving business that caters to the community's fencing needs. We are a family owned and operated business and look forward to bringing that to the local community."

Johns, a veteran of the United States Marine Corps, worked as the vice president of construction for The Sports Authority and Fresh Thyme Farmers Market for more than 20 years, where he specialized in commercial retail construction.

Lisa Johns said the couple's experience in hiring a professional and dependable fence contractor played into their decision to provide the Naperville area with a reliable fencing company.

"We plan to combine my business administration degree with Mark's 30-plus years of construction experience to provide Naperville and the surrounding areas with the impeccable service that Top Rail Fence provides," Lisa Johns said. "It's been a goal of ours to be business owners, so we're blessed to have accomplished it in this amazing community. We are excited to raise the bar of customer service and give Naperville and the surrounding area the service it deserves."

After relocating from Denver, Colorado, the couple have spent the last seven years in the Chicago area and have a 16-year-old daughter, Kate.

"We are excited about the opportunity to build and lead a dedicated team in this community," Mark Johns said.
