No stalling, just Stallons

DALLAS/FT WORTH - There is a little town in Tarrant county called White Settlement, which is kind of how this story began. Kirk Stallons remembers living in White Settlement and attending Brewer High School. In the mid-‘80s, a friend of his found land to purchase in the Aledo school district. It was five acres and they made plans to split it. “That’s how it all started,” said Stallons. Today, Stallons resides with his wife and his two sons in Aledo.

 


    Stallons is the owner of Stallons AC, an HVAC company for residential clients with a bit of commercial, including light refrigeration. The service area varies, but Stallons said, “We will go to east Parker County or to west Tarrant County. We will travel to Granbury and on the east side of Arlington.” New clients who come their way are actually introducing them to new service areas. “Our customers are people who heard about us,” added Stallons.
    Stallons launched his business in 1997 while working in maintenance for another company’s air conditioning and maintenance department. Stallons work-ed two jobs for seven years; the second was doing AC services for his company on the side.  At that time, Stallons had his wife and two sons to think about, as it “got real overwhelming.” He was torn and left in late 2006 after 20 years with his former employer. But, Stallons didn’t stop working; instead he went full time with Stallons AC. “I asked my wife to quit her job and help me do the books,” he said. So with his family in full support of him, the transition was natural.
    Today the family-owned-and-operated business has five employees, with two being Stallons’ sons Klint and Kyle. Klint is a service technician and sales associate. Kyle recently took the role as the marketing representative for the company. Stallons also considers Galileo, who has been with the company nine years, as part of the family; Stallons has known the service technician ever since Galileo and Klint attended kindergarten together. There are also two helpers that work for the company, and everyone gets along great. After work, they sometimes go over their day with each other and share stories that start out like, “A dog attacked me,” laughed Stallons. Overall, the Stallons’ AC team members are compliant with each other and accommodating with their customers.
    As a matter of fact, sometimes on a Sunday morning after church, customers will tell Klint, “Oh, my gosh! I just saw you in my house this weekend!” That’s because Klint and Kyle are both talented and professional musicians. On Sundays, Klint is on stage at church playing the fiddle. Kyle, Stallons’ oldest son, just came back from the music scene in Nashville, TN this past summer. “He was in Nashville for 10 years. Klint came back [from Nashville] five years ago. He and Kyle were touring together with Brad Paisley,” said Stallons. This Texas-raised family returned to their roots and is now highly involved in the family business. Stallons’ sons may not be recognized for just their music either; Klint and Kyle attended Aledo High School. “If anyone knows anything about high school football [in Texas], they know about Aledo.”
    What’s next for Stallons AC? Stallons says they’ve grown every year and have reached the goal he had for many years. “We hit a million last year. I was ecstatic. We did it again this year and went over. If we keep on this path, that will be fantastic,” shared Stallons.
    Family is the backbone of the company, but the Aledo community that they love also supports them. “We have grown so much out here.” Indeed, they have. With 21 years of business, Stallons AC will be happily ending their year and looking forward to starting the next.
