We had the good fortune of connecting with Hunter Pricer and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Hunter, how do you think about risk?
I believe that risk is imperative to success! Initially, I took financial risks to get my business off the ground; creating an LLC, purchasing the tools necessary, etc. I had to bet on myself and the business and it paid off.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
What sets my business apart from others is our attention to detail, integrity and the quality of our work. I have been working with fireplaces and grills since 2013 so I am highly trained in this field. I started my business in 2019 and did all of the work by myself for the first couple years. This allowed me time to build my clientele. My business has now grown to where I have been able to hire a couple employees in the last year and that is very exciting! I want to give back what was given to me. So having the opportunity to mentor and train others has been very rewarding.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I love Dallas! I would stop for a bite at ‘Easy Slider’ in Deep Ellum, and later walk the Bishop Arts District area. Clyde Warren Park is always a fun time with the many food truck options as well as the yard games you can rent from the local stand. Lastly I would suggest taking an elevator ride to the top of the Reunion Tower for an amazing few of the city of Dallas.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
There are many people who have led to the success of my business! To start, when I was a young man looking for a job, I am thankful to have had a company take me on and train me in fireplace and grill servicing. Specifically, Marshall Jackson, owner of Freedom Chimney and Fireplace, was very influential in me having the knowledge and confidence to start my own business. I am very thankful for that connection. Of course, my wife has always been supportive of all my crazy dreams and helps in many aspects of the business. It’s a blessing to know she always has my back. Above all, I wouldn’t be the man I am or be where I am without God. He is my compass and I hope to lead a business that glorifies him.
