Jamie Limber has made a career out of holiday lights, and now he’s franchising his St. Nick’s Professional Decorators with the goal of creating a nationwide Christmas decoration company.
“There’s certain services out there that people just don’t do themselves,” said Limber, the company’s CEO. “Carpet cleaning is a good example. Ten or 20 years ago, people cleaned their carpets themselves. Now they hire a service. We want to be like that.”
Franchising a service has been Limber’s goal since he sold the Christmas Light Co. in August 2008 to Dyno Merchandise Corp. in Pompano Beach, Fla., for more than $5 million.
Limber is an old hand at Christmas decorations. He started his first business, the Christmas Lights Decorator, in 1989 and sold it in 2003 after it became the largest custom Christmas decorator in Arizona.
