A Storied Beginning
Imagine this: a cart laden with firewood, a trusty mule, and the birth of Randall Brothers. Harvey Gatewood Randall, the visionary behind it all, embarked on this journey on his 21st birthday, and triumphed. Initially, it was Harvey, along with his brothers W.L. and Paul H., and they christened their venture Randall & Brothers. In 1919, they formalized their commitment, becoming Randall Brothers Inc. Remarkably, they remained rooted in the same location, at the corner of North Ave and Marietta Street, for an astounding 138 years. During this time, Randall Brothers explored various offerings, even venturing into firewood and coal sales for a time!
Passing Down the Legacy
In 1933, H.G. Randall passed away, and the torch was entrusted to his son, Luther H. Randall. Luther navigated turbulent waters, including the challenges of World War II. To adapt, the company acquired Narjoe Timber, a fellow Atlanta enterprise, to steer through the chaos of the wartime market. Fast forward to the late 1940s, with the advent of natural gas. Randall Brothers seized the opportunity, expanding to offer heating and air conditioning installation services, building on their foundation in firewood and coal. By 1960, Luther Randall Jr. took the reins, leading the way into the late 1980s when his son, Luther Randall III, assumed leadership. It was during this era that Randall Brothers evolved into the form recognizable to Atlanteans today.
