LUBBOCK, Texas – Since 1998, Nite Time Decor has offered a comprehensive landscape lighting franchise program to contractors in many lines of work. Early this year, the company made the decision to transition out of the franchising model, and move into the distribution of products.

The company made the switch so they could extend their reach within the landscape lighting industry-giving them the ability to sell their private-label product line in more markets, while providing training, support and tools to contractors who may not want to commit at the level that purchasing a franchise would require.

Nite Time Decor CEO Blake Smith says that while the decision was difficult, he feels that his company made the right decision with regard to moving outside of the franchise model.

Smith, whose company also operates the Christmas Decor franchise network in 375 markets across the U.S. and Canada, added that his team has been working with the existing 40-plus Nite Time Decor franchises to transition out of their franchise agreements.

Smith states that their product line consists of solid brass fixtures, which carry a lifetime warranty, and a full line of transformers, accessories and LED lamps.
