Legacy Limousine and Luxury Coaches relocated its high-end bus and charter bus service from Hampton Roads to Elizabeth City earlier this quarter, arriving in style at the Pasquotank County Commerce Park. Founder and CEO Chris Johnson wanted a spacious, accessible location to grow his company, with ample room for designing, building, renovating and customizing executive coaches and limousines for companies and private owners. The former Stateline Builders site at the Commerce Park fit the bill.
Last week, Johnson’s staff was hard at work for a new client, overhauling a charter bus for a Raleigh-based touring service. He’s been pleasantly surprised at the business opportunities that have opened as a result of moving to North Carolina, as well as the quality of the 19 local workers he hired to fill the gap left by employees who opted out of the move. “In general, we like the workforce here better than the one we had before,” said Johnson.
The company, with a total staff of 34, also provides rental service for limousines, limo buses, and executive coaches, and it operates a charter bus service that takes groups on organized excursions to Washington, D.C., New York City and beyond. Legacy Limousine and Luxury Coaches is located at 305 Commerce Drive.
