Vegas Business Spotlight, the leading podcast showcasing the brightest minds and success stories in the Las Vegas business scene, is thrilled to feature Shane Hayes, the visionary founder of PDQ Electric, in its latest episode. With a remarkable journey filled with challenges and triumphs, Hayes offers valuable insights and wisdom gained from his experiences as he navigated the dynamic entrepreneurial landscape of Las Vegas.
In the engaging conversation with host Tim Knifton, Hayes provides an inspiring glimpse into his journey of building PDQ Electric into one of Las Vegas’ leading electrical contracting companies. From humble beginnings as a union employee to the decision to start his own business during the 2009 economic downturn, Hayes’ determination and passion for electrical work have propelled PDQ Electric to great success. With a focus on residential, commercial, and industrial projects, PDQ Electric has gained a reputation for its commitment to service and excellence.
Reflecting on his early days as an entrepreneur, Hayes shares, “I was a union employee, and when the economy tanked, I had a choice – either go to work for myself or become a troll underneath the bridge. Since I like eating, I decided to open PDQ Electric.” This bold move not only helped him secure his livelihood but also allowed him to fully immerse himself in his true passion: electrical work.
Over the years, Hayes has learned valuable lessons about running a business and adapting to the ever-changing landscape of Las Vegas. “Being based in Las Vegas wasn’t a choice; it was a necessity. This city offers diverse opportunities and a constant upward trajectory,” says Hayes. With an influx of people from different parts of the country and the world, PDQ Electric has positioned itself as an ideal electrician for clients from various backgrounds and locations.
As part of PDQ Electric’s commitment to staying ahead of the curve, Hayes has embraced the latest technology trends in the industry. He highlights the importance of LED lighting and its cost-saving benefits for both residential and commercial clients. By staying on top of technological advancements and leveraging grants and programs available, PDQ Electric aims to provide the best solutions to its customers while being environmentally conscious.
While sharing his insights, Hayes emphasizes the significance of networking and building meaningful connections within the Las Vegas business community. “Networking is crucial; you need to understand your customers and how to reach them. If you don’t put yourself out there and showcase your worth, the work won’t come to you,” advises Hayes. By actively participating in organizations like BNI (Business Networking Individuals) and maintaining a strong online presence through platforms such as Google and social media, PDQ Electric has expanded its reach and formed valuable partnerships.
Looking towards the future, Hayes envisions PDQ Electric becoming a top competitor in the industry while maintaining its commitment to providing excellent service and value to its customers. “I want to build customers for life. It’s not about the one big win; it’s about creating long-lasting relationships,” emphasizes Hayes.
As the episode draws to a close, Hayes shares his mantra for success, “Smile and have fun. If you’re not enjoying what you do, it’s time to find something else.” This positive and passionate approach has undoubtedly contributed to the success of PDQ Electric and made Hayes a respected figure within the Las Vegas business community.
