Legends Furniture Inc.
Rick Schmidgall is not your average successful businessman. He doesn’t have a business degree. He would rather be down on the production floor than up in his office. He doesn’t believe in over-thinking the future. For example, he doesn’t believe in long-term business plans, and he doesn’t project annual sales. In fact, if you had asked Schmidgall back in 1990 when he began manufacturing furniture in an 800-square-foot space whether he believed that some day he would have a 133,000-square-foot manufacturing facility and four warehouses, he probably would have said no.
