Legend Lighting Celebrates Five Year Anniversary

LL Five Year

Legend Lighting is proud to celebrate our fifth year in business in 2014!  Five years ago we opened the doors with a couple of employees, a few lighting lines and a limited amount of lighting on display.  In 2014 we have grown to a staff of 16 valued employees,  we offer over 100 lighting lines and our showroom has an abundant display of beautiful decorative lighting, ceiling fans, outdoor lighting and includes a recessed lighting lab.

We would like to sincerely thank all of the customers and friends that have been a part of our growth and success so far.  The future is bright and we look forward to illuminating Austin’s homes for many years to come!

Tyson Neal is the Associate Vice President of Legend Lighting and our showroom  manager. We asked Tyson to reflect back on these first five years:

Tyson, as Legend Lighting celebrates its five year anniversary, how is the business different today than it was five years ago when we opened the doors in May of 2009?

There are many differences. We started with 8 lighting lines and now offer over 100 lines. We now have a professionally merchandised showroom that has our personal touch, making sure what we offer is right for Austin. And our strong growth has allowed us to build an outstanding team of lighting experts with design backgrounds.

What has been your biggest challenge?

Employee training-Lighting experts are not a dime-a-dozen, and we’ve worked hard to put together a training curriculum that incorporates resources provided by the American Lighting Association, along with our own experience.

What has been your most celebrated success? 

Surviving the Great Recession as a new business and emerging as a thriving and vibrant business is something that both our family and our employees are extremely proud to have been a part. It gives us confidence going forward that great things are still to come.

What makes Legend Lighting special and why should builders, interior designers and homeowners come here to make lighting selections?

It’s a personal experience to do business with us, from the products we hand-pick to display for our Austin clientele, to the personalized attention that each of our lighting experts gives to every project they work on. We’re dedicated to not only finding the right solutions for our clients, but opening their eyes to new products and designs that they may not have even been aware of.

What are you most excited about going foward?

The LED lighting revolution that is changing the way we illuminate homes and making new design possibilities a reality.
