DeWitt County Business Owner Celebrates 40 Years in Business

Richard Randall and his wife Marlene are celebrating 40 years of owning and operating Randall Cabinets and Design in business in DeWitt County.


Richard tells Regional Radio News his roots in Clinton began when he was a college student at Illinois State University hoping to become a wood teacher but ended up starting his own business and things only grew from there.



Randall's business growth is due to almost entirely word of mouth recommendations. He explains a job for one individual would translate to two or three others and it snowballed from there.



According to Randall, as they grew they then started selling Sub-Zero and Wolf kitchen appliances as well as countertops of all types. You've likely seen the small storage sheds outside their facility in Wapella, Randall notes they recently started selling those to better utilize the prime location they have off the highway. 



One of Randall's most notable clients was a former Cy Young award candidate and a member of the Chicago Cubs. He also points out the variety of jobs he's done has required a lot of creativity.



Randall has since retired but remains a part of the business on the design side - his son Joe has taken over the business and Richard congratulates him on the recent birth of their new baby. He thanks his wife Marlene for her support of him over the 40 years of their operation and is thankful for the gift God gave him to be successful in his industry. 


Randall Cabinets is located at 703 Walnut Circle in Wapella to the north of Circle H Western Store.
