The show's millions of viewers nationwide saw local community leaders talk about Lincoln Logs and its business, and the vital jobs it provided in the region.
Lincoln Logs Vice President Erin Stephenson Brothers said Friday the Huckabee Show went beyond immediately stimulating interest in log home purchases and potential dealerships for Lincoln Logs.
"Most of all it had a positive impact on people's perception," she said. "Viewers across the nation saw us as a family-owned business, and people look up to that with all that's going on in the U.S. right now. It also spurred interest and confidence among potential dealers."
Company officials have said that the common ownership of Stephenson Lumber and Lincoln Logs provides substantial synergies, including design capabilities, and their ability to supply each other materials from extensive inventories at wholesale.
The firm is now seeking to expand its roster of dealerships, particularly in the northeastern U.S., from Tupper Lake to Cape Cod to New Hampshire, Maine and South Carolina, Olden said.
Lincoln Logs employees take pride in the customer service they provide, he said, noting that the firm hosts seminars every six weeks for prospective homeowners. Held Saturday mornings, they tackle topics including design, financing and construction of log homes.
The next such session in from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday Sept. 26.
"Our passion to satisfy customers is so important to our success," Olden said. "We help design and follow through with clients as if it is our own home."
