Ted Barrett
Owner and General Manager

I grew up in Ann Arbor and attended Father Gabriel Richard High School.  I moved to Port Huron in 2002 after graduating Michigan State University.  I really enjoy interacting with all of our customers.  I am married with two boys and when I am not at work you will find us at one of the many beaches or playgrounds in the area.  I really enjoy attending Michigan State football games and was able to attend the 2014 Rose Bowl.  I take pride in the tradition Cawood has in the community of serving our customers.  If you ever have any questions or comments feel free to contact me directly.  Thank you again for the support.
