A few of our most popular commercial and industrial electrical services include but are not limited to:

Circuit Breakers

Tripped Circuit Breakers

Your businesses' electrical system will trip when it has too much electricity running through it. These problems are very common in commercial properties and usually stem from one of three culprits: circuit overloads, short circuits, and ground fault surges. Obviously, when your circuits are tripped regularly, your business operations suffer. To help solve your circuit breaker problems, our commercial electricians will come to your location for in-depth troubleshooting. Once we discover the root cause, we'll get to work on repairing your circuit breaker, so you can continue working and serving your customers.

Flickering Lights

Flickering Lights

Like tripped circuit breakers, dimming or flickering lights are among the most common commercial electrical problems in South Carolina. These issues typically stem from poor electrical connections. These poor connections will usually cause sparks, which can start fires and wreak havoc on your commercial building. While dimming lights might seem minor, if you leave this problem to fester, you could be looking at permanent damage to your businesses' electrical systems. Given the danger involved in fixing this problem, it's important that you work with a licensed business electrician like Engineered Electrical Solutions as soon as you're able to.

Dead Power Outlets

Dead Power Outlets

Dead power outlets aren't always dangerous, unlike other recurring commercial electrical issues. They are, however, disruptive to your company's productivity. Dead outlets are common in older commercial buildings and are often caused by circuit overloads. Connecting multiple high-wattage devices and appliances to the same power socket can cause overheating. When the power outlet overheats, it can lead to tripped circuit breakers. In some cases, the live wire catches fire and burns until it is disconnected. For a reliable solution using high-quality switches, sockets, and circuit breakers, it's best to hire a professional business electrician to get the job done right.

Residential Electrician vs. Commercial Electrician in Mint Hill:
What's the Difference?

Finding a real-deal, qualified commercial electrician in South Carolina is harder than you might think. Whether it's due to availability or budget, you might be tempted to hire a residential electrician for your commercial electrical problem. While it's true that great residential electricians can help solve commercial issues in theory, it's always best to hire a business electrician with professional experience.

Unlike their residential colleagues, commercial electricians are licensed to deal with different materials and procedures suited specifically for businesses. Commercial wiring is much more complex than residential, and is strategically installed with maintenance, repair, and changes in mind. Additionally, commercial properties usually use a three-phase power supply, necessitating more schooling, skills, and technical ability to service.

The bottom line? If you're a business owner with commercial electricity problems, it's best to work with a licensed commercial electrician, like you will find at Engineered Electrical Solutions.

GASTONIA, N.C. (CHARLOTTE OBSERVER) - The popular Southern fast-food chicken chain Chick-fil-A is permanently closing a Charlotte-area store, leaving more than 100 workers without jobs, according to a recent state report.

Chick-fil-A Franklin Square in Gastonia will permanently close, effective June 15, laying off 117 employees, according to a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN) filed April 14 with the North Carolina Department of Commerce.

The report did not say why the store is closing. The store, at 3350 East Franklin Blvd. is the restaurant chain’s only Gastonia location. Gastonia is west of Charlotte.

Workers at the store may not necessarily get a job at another Chick-fil-A.

“There is no guarantee of future employment with Chick-fil-A Inc.,” Chick-fil-A Inc. interim manager Vickie Witt said in a letter to the state agency.

CHICK-FIL-A STORE OPENINGS

But Gastonia won’t be without a Chick-fil-A for long. In January, construction company A & A Grading & Hauling Inc. told the Gaston Gazette it was demolishing the former Ruby Tuesday on Cox Road, off Interstate 85, to make way for a Chick-fil-A store.

Local residents have other options too.

The Atlanta-based company opened a Gaston County restaurant in July in Belmont at 925 South Point Road. Chick-fil-A has another store in Belmont at 801 Park St.

In October, Chick-fil-A opened its 58th store in the region at 7404 Matthews Mint Hill Road in Mint Hill, southeast of Charlotte.

And In Charlotte, Chick-fil-A reopened its renovated East Woodlawn Avenue location last June as a drive-thru only site to ease traffic congestion.

CHICKEN SANDWICH COMPETITION

Chick-fil-A has hot competition from other chicken sandwich chains in the Charlotte region, in the iconic Bojangles’ hometown.

In March, Arkansas-based Slim Chickens made its North Carolina debut opening its first Charlotte store in the University City area. The fast-casual chain is planning to open 14 other locations in North Carolina and South Carolina, including Columbia, Indian Trail and Concord.

West Coast-based Dave’s Hot Chicken said last year it’s planning to open 12 fast-casual franchise locations in Charlotte.

And Bojangles, founded in Charlotte in 1977, has been expanding, too.

The chicken-and-biscuit chain plans to add more local stores, including a drive-thru only site at 3809 E. Independence Blvd. and another store at 300 West Ave., The Charlotte Observer previously reported.

And Bojangles has opened or plans to open nearly 130 stores with debuts in Ohio, New York, Texas, Illinois and Arkansas over the past two years. The expansion includes 40 restaurant openings at Love’s Travel Stops.

2022 Mint Hill Rodeo Is A Smashing Success

MINT HILL, NC – On April 22nd and 23rd, the Mint Hill Rodeo reopened for its 2022 season. The South Carolina High School Rodeo Association (SCHSRA) hasn’t been able to compete in Mint Hill since 2019. This year, it returned, and based on overall attendance, the residents of Mint Hill and surrounding areas couldn’t be happier.

The two days of friendly competition began with the first round of high school events on Friday night. The crowd began to gather at 6:00 pm to scope out a seat and enjoy some of the vendors that came out. Mama K’s Kettlecorn was popping all night, its salty-sweet aroma mixing in with the scent of deliciously classic chicken sandwiches that were served in the Chik-Fil-A tent. Rustic Root had a booth displaying fun country décor. There were stands featuring face-painting, light-up toys, jewelry, and official “Mint Hill Rodeo” merch. There was family-friendly entertainment in every corner. Just before sunset, everyone found their seats, and the show began!

Each round of competition began with an invocation and a performance of the Star-Spangled Banner. Between performances, audience members were entertained by the antics of rodeo clown Austin Sanders, and joined in rounds of “Cowboy Karaoke.” There was also a frisbee toss giveaway, a raffle ticket sweepstakes, and a Calf Scramble and Candy Scramble for the younger attendees. The whole weekend was a nonstop series of thrilling events.

From Bareback Riding and Steer Wrestling to Breakaway Roping and Barrel Racing, each event was filled with fun, talent, and sportsmanship. One of Friday evening’s standouts was the bull rider Eli McClain, who scored 68 points with a successful drive on his bucking steer. Another strong performance was given by MayLeigh Chapman who turned in a time of 4.412 on her breakaway roping. However, the star of the night was Dallas Cook, who came away from Friday’s night of competition as a high scorer in multiple events, including Goat Tying, Pole Bending, and Barrel Racing.

The Junior and Youth Teams also delivered strong and entertaining performances on Saturday morning. These teams included barrel racers and breakaway ropers as young as five years old who already show a lot of promise in their sport. Cowgirls Teally-Rein Gray and Maddie Nix achieved effective work in the barrels, poles, and goat-tying. Several cowboys, including Case Sellers and Logan Tessner, illustrated strong horsemanship despite their young age. In the Junior High events, the athleticism was even more impressive. Chute dogger Case Cox wrestled a steer to the ground in 2.138 seconds. Ally Farr roped and broke away a calf in a flash of 4.420. Ribbon roping team Noah Long and Campbell Ashley got their calf roped and its tail ribbon run back to the judges with a time of 13.214. Despite a few penalties that affected scores, every event illustrated both the athletic prowess and strong character of each contestant.

SCHSRA Student Body President Keely Orr says this is her favorite part about being on these teams in this sport. “Our association really prides itself on building character as well as skill,” she shared on Friday evening. “The athlete’s behavior, both in and out of the arena is taken into consideration. Even our grades are a part of it. These standards really make all our members feel like a family and keep our competition friendly and encouraging.” Orr then stopped to immediately cheer on one of her competitors, Harley McIver.

Orr says the Association is looking forward to State Finals in Clemson, SC, on Memorial Day weekend. “We get to interact with 26 competitors that come from a variety of states and countries. I think we even have cowboys and cowgirls from Hawaii and Australia this year,” she smiles. “However, the Mint Hill Rodeo is our favorite weekend of the entire year. This is where we get the largest turnout and the best crowd. We’re so excited that the Mint Hill Rodeo is back on our schedule.”

The town of Mint Hill and its Historical Society agree. They look forward to hosting this event again and again for years to come.

MINT HILL, NC – After a two-year hiatus, The Mint Hill Historical Society is excited to announce that they will once again be hosting the Mint Hill Rodeo at 8201 Bartlett Road. The rodeo will take place on April 22nd and 23rd and will have PeeWee, Junior High, and High School level events.

“The Mint Hill Historical Society is happy to be hosting again,” says Rodeo Committee Chairman Hood Dulin. “Our team has done an excellent job getting this event off the ground. We’re gonna have Peewee’s riding sheep, breakaway roping in Junior High, and two nights of high school competition.”

Dulin knows what a big deal the rodeo is for the Mint Hill community. “Not only is this a great way we raise money for the Historical Society to keep Mint Hill’s history alive, but the rodeo is also an opportunity for these competitors to earn scholarship money and a place in the National Competitions, too. This event is the biggest rodeo in North and South Carolina, and Mint Hill is happy to help these kids do the sport they enjoy the best way they know how.”

The competitive events aren’t the only reason community members should attend this year’s rodeo. “Rain or shine, we will have lots of booths for local businesses that are supporting the rodeo. And, of course, there will be lots of good food,” Historical Society Executive Director Becky Griffin says with a twinkle in her eye. “There will be kettle corn, funnel cakes – all that good carnival food we love. Our newest sponsor, Chick-fil-A, will also have a booth there.”

“Actually, we’re making the entire month of April ‘Rodeo Month’ at the Mint Hill Chick-fil-A location,” Denise Boston, Community and Brand Director for Chick-fil-A, informs. “Our kick-off event is from 3:00 – 5:00 pm on April 9th. We will have some of the rodeo participants in our parking lot with their horses. Families can come by, play some games, take pictures, and meet the competitors. It’s a great way to get to know the faces behind the names they’ll be cheering on at the event.”

Chick-fil-A is also holding a raffle to win four unique prize packs! From the 9th through the 19th, activity sheets will be available in the restaurant. Kids can come, fill out the activity sheets and drop them in a bucket. On April 20th, the winners will be drawn. The prize packs will include tickets to the rodeo, vouchers for Chick-fil-A food at the rodeo and other items.

The rodeo is great, family-friendly entertainment. Tickets are only $10 at the gate for 12 and up; kids 12 and under are $5. Friday night the gates will open at 6:00 pm On Saturday, the gates will open at 9 am The Historical Society hopes to see everybody there!

*Volunteers are still needed for this event. If you are interested in volunteering, please call or leave a message with the Historical Society Main Office at (704) 573-0726.

Create-A-Video Celebrates Its Twenty-Fifth Year

MINT HILL, NC – When he got involved in the memory preservation business, Dave Martinson, the owner of Create-A-Video in Mint Hill, knew he was on the cutting edge of a new technological enterprise. Now, this locally owned and operated business is celebrating its twenty-fifth anniversary this month. “It has been the best and fastest twenty-five years I’ve ever seen,” Martinson shares. “In 1997, my retail business developed a new concept: making videos using photo stills, graphics and music to tell the story of t...

MINT HILL, NC – When he got involved in the memory preservation business, Dave Martinson, the owner of Create-A-Video in Mint Hill, knew he was on the cutting edge of a new technological enterprise. Now, this locally owned and operated business is celebrating its twenty-fifth anniversary this month. “It has been the best and fastest twenty-five years I’ve ever seen,” Martinson shares. “In 1997, my retail business developed a new concept: making videos using photo stills, graphics and music to tell the story of tourism travels. Since then, we have been staying ahead of the technological curve and created new opportunities for our clients and our business.”

Create-A-Video specializes in protecting and preserving family memories. They transform photos, projector slides, cassettes, VHS tapes, and 8MM film into electronic formats. With their assistance, customers can turn more fragile mediums into something permanent. “Once these types of items are digitized, there are a variety of options available to a family. You can make and mail copies to distant relatives, upload the data to the cloud to access it from any device, or create a privatized YouTube channel for family members to view anywhere in the world,” Martinson explains.

Create-A-Video has grown both in size and in a variety of services. “As technology marched on through the decades, our company stayed in step,” Martinson says. “We started out with just a few options, but now we have a Video Production arm of the company which makes ads and promotions for businesses. We also have a Video Editing department that can cut together films for customers and a Video Creation team that can make a client’s vision come to life.” The Create-A-Video team is dedicated to giving each customer exactly what they need.

The rise of the smartphone also has played a part in Martinson’s twenty-five year company. “We have a phone app that allows for everything to be streamed directly to and from a device. Once pictures are digitized, they can be downloaded and shared to social media,” Martinson informs. “However, my favorite way people have used the app is during travel. Not only does our app share photos, it can also share documents, has a messaging feature, and a passenger locator feature. And it’s 100% secure. So a teacher, chaperones, and students can stay in touch and keep each other safe no matter where they go. And then at the end of the trip, Create-A-Video has everything in one location to make a memory compilation those families can enjoy for years to come.”

As his company approaches its quarter-of-a-century milestone, Martinson’s overall attitude is one of gratitude. “We are very proud of the hard work we have done, especially with the last two years being so difficult because of COVID. We are coming back and think 2023 will be an awesome year. As people get to travel and host events again, we are excited to help them capture and keep new memories.”

Create-A-Video has already begun to expand to meet their latest goals. “We added Photomosaic photos to our repertoire, and we’ve begun to offer colorization of black-and-white photos. That’s one I’m really excited to see people enjoy,” Martinson happily shares.

“We also know that with the development of 5G, the ability to live-stream will be easier and cheaper, so, true to our business model for the last twenty-five years, we’re working on staying ahead and adapting to that technological update.”

For Martinson and Create-A-Video, the future is bright not only because of technology, but also because of their location. “Mint Hill is made up of everything genuine. People here know the value of preserving what is precious while making way for new things that are necessary. I can’t wait to continue helping my community make their stories by keeping their memories.”

A New Market Is Found In Fun Size Equipment

CHARLOTTE, NC – Fun Size Equipment offers unique and exciting construction experiences for the whole family. Company founder and owner Crystal Nicholls got inspired by her two sons and their interest in construction work equipment. “Really, it was their love of Blippi and his ‘The Excavator Song.’ I saw them just come alive with interest,” Nicholls shares. “I also loved the fact that they were seeing value in something that wasn’t unrealistic – like superheroes – but in something they cou...

CHARLOTTE, NC – Fun Size Equipment offers unique and exciting construction experiences for the whole family. Company founder and owner Crystal Nicholls got inspired by her two sons and their interest in construction work equipment. “Really, it was their love of Blippi and his ‘The Excavator Song.’ I saw them just come alive with interest,” Nicholls shares. “I also loved the fact that they were seeing value in something that wasn’t unrealistic – like superheroes – but in something they could actually learn how to do.”

Nicholls quickly realized she had stumbled upon a niche market. “There really isn’t much in the world of ‘play construction’ unless you know someone who can give the kids a ride along on professional equipment,” Nicholls observed, so she took the initiative and created a business. Nicholls owns a set of completely kid-friendly and safe play construction equipment. “All of the tracks have been removed so it’s completely safe,” Nicholls explains. “The top and boom of each piece but you learn the controls without the danger.”

Fun Size Equipment is also completely mobile and takes great care to create safe event spaces wherever they go. “We host all our events outdoors. I am there to wipe down all the surfaces between each individual who uses the equipment so we can have fun, stay healthy and be protected,” Nicholls says.

One of the most surprising things for Nicholls was the range of clientele she has uncovered. “Even though I originally thought of this to answer the needs of children, we get customers of all ages!” Nicholls exclaims. Fun Size Equipment has done School Fundraisers and Birthday parties as well as Corporate and Church Events. “My goal is flexibility. I can customize the experience so the event is successful for each individual customer.”

Nicholls’ favorite thing to watch is the bonding that happens between coworkers or family members. “It’s a great team-building activity,” Nicholls smiles. “Moms and Dads who work with this equipment in the real world can teach their kids how to use it. It’s wonderful to see families working together.”

Nicholls says she hopes to continue to expand her business to a wider market. “I’d love to add other trades into the mix. Kid-friendly and safe ways to learn plumbing, home building, construction – you name it!” Nicholls says. “Of course, I’d want to work with real professionals in each field to achieve that goal. Technical expertise is very valuable and I want to highlight both its necessity and interest as a field of educational play.”

Fun Size Equipment is educational and exciting at the same time! Interested parties can arrange a party or event with Crystal Nicholls and her team by calling (704) 918-5021 or by visiting www.funsizeequipment.com
