Chamber Members Spotlight: Lucky’s Backflow & Plumbing Services LLC
This week’s Chamber Membership Update highlights Phillip and Jenny Lucky, owners of Lucky’s Backflow & Plumbing Services LLC. Just ten months after opening in 2018, the Lucky have joined the chamber and have remained very involved in the community.
Why did you choose to open your business in Ellis County?
My wife was born and raised in Waxahachie, and we lived in Ellis County our entire marriage (18 years). We want to do business with our community and help support other local businesses.
What do you think sets your business apart from others?
We have moved away from residential plumbing to offer more specialized services. We specialize in everything associated with backflow prevention devices as well as residential and commercial remodeling, tenant finishing and new construction.
What’s your favorite part of what you do?
Honestly, with the change in the working climate, we have found a real need to train our own future plumbers. We have high school and middle school students in our community learning the plumber trade. We appreciate the opportunity; we need to help our customers and support and invest in our youth.
What do you like most about the Waxahachie room?
We have found the Waxahachie Chamber to be a great resource for learning about other small businesses, networking, and a source of information on what’s going on in our community. We are also big fans of the room staff and are happy to see that Kevin Strength has joined the team.
