Meet Lux Limo ❤️
We teamed up with local, Austin company Lux Limo for a giveaway of a 3 hour rental in their Mercedes Sprinter Limo that seats 14 passengers. Last Friday, we met two of the owners (Shawn and Andrea McAdams) at the Pennybacker Bridge to announce the giveaway on Facebook live. I love entrepreneurs; so, afterwards, we sat down with them inside the limo and I asked them how they got started and why they do what they do.
When you hear the owners of Lux Limo talk about what they do, you can feel their passion. Tears came to their eyes (and mine) when they told a recent story of facilitating a magical engagement. You can see the joy in their smiles when they talk about driving wedding parties. And, their pride is evident when they discuss quality control and keeping clients safe. I asked them if they ever escorted any local celebrities. They do. I tried to get some juicy stories, but wouldn’t you know it, they abide by strict confidentiality policies for all of their clientele.
Here is a clip of my favorite story they told. I’ve never heard a more romantic engagement proposal:
This clip tells how Shawn and Andrea teamed up with Blair and Julie Drenner to start Lux Limo:
Here is a clip explaining why you should only used a licensed transportation service (don’t use a “gypsy limo”):
Lux Limo is an independent, locally owned business. Here’s why I ❤️ local businesses:
- Local businesses spend more of the money they make in the local economy, making communities stronger. (See study here).
- These studies show that local businesses are linked to higher income growth and lower levels of poverty.
- Using local companies reduces the environmental impact.
