Lee Co. new store in Town

The Lee Company, which offers a full range of home repair services, is coming to Farragut, and officials are enthusiastic about bringing its services to the region.

The family-owned business is leasing 10,000 square feet in the newly constructed second building in the Little Turkey Creek commercial development, 12522 Kingston Pike.

“We picked Farragut, which is just a great community, and we are very excited to be here,” said Jason Scott, Lee Company Home Services operations manager. “Our new office has great frontage and good traffic counts. It will be a great location for us.”

“Our start date is July 1, and we will start the build out,” he added. “We are planning for a mid-October opening and a ribbon cutting when we are open.”

According to its website, the Lee Company has a total of about 1,500 employees offering services that include HVAC, plumbing, electrical, appliance repair — and even large construction projects and build outs.

“We want to be the one-stop shop for all repair and construction needs, and we will be serving communities within a one-hour radius of the new location,” said Scott, who added the company also will be hiring locally.

“What makes us different, besides all that we offer, is our commitment to our customers through great customer service.”

The Lee Company was founded in 1944 by Gov. Bill Lee’s grandfather, Leon Lee.

The governor currently is divested from the company, which remains family-owned, Scott said.

The Farragut location will be the company’s 11th, Scott said, noting additional operations in Chattanooga, Franklin, Clarksville, Cookeville, Hendersonville, Columbia, East Nashville, Murfreesboro, Bowling Green, Kentucky and Huntsville, Alabama.

“We opened in Chattanooga a year ago, and it has done very well,” Scott said. “That community was very welcoming and we have been very well received.

“We are looking forward to providing our services from our newest location in Farragut,” he added.
