By 1916 other manufacturers started making their own versions of Hoosier style cupboards. McDougall, Sellers, Napanee, Sears, Roebuck & Co. are just a few.

Kitchen design started changing. Paint and tile started to be used for easy cleaning. The Hoosier Cabinet worktops (originally wood) became aluminum and "porceliron" (porcelain-enameled steel), then exclusively porceliron.

Hoosier had sold over a million cabinets by the 1920's. They expanded with tables, chairs, sideboards and a clever stool that, when flipped over, became a stepladder.

For a dollar down and a dollar a week you could have a Hoosier Cabinet in your kitchen. If there wasn't a dealer near you, they'd deliver. They had a Hoosier Cabinet Club you could join, a kitchen plan book (free with purchase),  a Hoosier Council of Kitchen Scientists. These people were advertising masters.
