#EdmontonStrong: Legends Limousine tells their story

Published

In this series of stories, we are asking local businesses to send us their current story… what they do and how they are surviving and pivoting to get through this unbelievable time.

These are your friends, neighbours and the people you rely on to get by in normal times.  Read the short story and be reminded that they’re still out there and will be when life returns to a new normal.

Here’s an article from Suzan Burtic of Legends Limousine in Edmonton

What does your business do?

We are a limousine business serving Edmonton and surrounding area.

How has COVID-19 affected you?

We have 8-10 passenger limousines and 20 to 30 passenger limousine buses. Starting mid March we started getting cancellations on B-Day, dinner and concert runs. At the end of the month my April runs and Weddings started cancelling. Now my Grads and Weddings May and June are trying to re-book or cancel. We had 7 staff member and are now down to 3. The phone does not ring unless to call to re-book or cancel. Our business has just stopped.

What are you doing to adapt?

To adapt we have down sized our fleet as well as our warehouse. I am still advertising on Google and social media but other than that we are dead. The few weddings under 16 we offer to have the ceremony on the bus and we are working to make their Wedding work.

What kind of help do you need?

Like every other business we need people which creates money which creates jobs, pays the bills and makes the business grow.
Other than people (customers) we need money. Once this passes we need support from the City, Chamber, tourism and organizations to direct people to our business. We have a good reputation and have been around 21 years but any connections I have made are from people like you Lloyd (President of Todayville), that have used us and liked our service.

What do you want the community to know?

We have been through tough times before, we are resilient and have weathered it. We love what we do and our customers are very important to us. Legends is built on customers who have been with us from the beginning, recommend us and all the great clients we add along the way. We will tough this out and be there for them. We are down but not out. This will pass and we’ll spread the fun and laughter, the good times like we always have.
