such

accomplishments?

Let’s start with a passion for what he does. After spending 30 years in banking, Stan says “I now feel like I never have to go to work”. He and his staff are baseball fanatics and travel around to various cities to watch a game. While there they make a point of finding that cities best Irish pub, so they can learn from others. It’s probably not necessary, but worth it when he and General Manager, Nick Keim, hear someone say, “It’s not Ireland, but it’s so damn close!” It’s obvious the employees love working here. Maybe it’s because, when you do a good job at The Celt for a period of time, they take you to Ireland. It’s not only a great reward but helps create a true Irish experience. However, the employees all

recognize the importance of customer relations and know many of their customers by their first name, what they do, and their families. After knowing he wanted to open an Irish pub for about 15 years, Stan started looking for the right spot. When he walked into the current building at 100 N Tennessee St, he simply fell in love with what was once a brothel and is on the Legends of McKinney Ghost Walk. Nick had been with the previous business, Churchill’s, for several years and welcomed the much livelier atmosphere, which offers live music 6 nights a week, trivia, and an open mike night. Oh, and they have absolutely the best fish and chips you can find! And if you have a friendly canine, they are welcome. So, visit www.theceltmckinney.com.

McKinney & Prosper Lifestyle | March 2020

HISTORIC DOWNTOWN MCKINNEY IS KNOWN FOR ITS CULTURE AND CREATIVITY. Ricky Phillips, owner of hōme∙ol∙o∙gy, embodies these concepts. While his shop is full of stunning, one-of-a-kind home furnishings, his passion and innate creativity for interior design was the catalyst for launching the showroom. Ricky spent 20 years in finance, specifically in the mortgage department where he loved seeing the joy of a young couple’s face when approved for their first mortgage. However, his love for interior design and furnishings initially spilled over in 2013 into the week-ends when the shops current location was the Home and Garden Trading Company, which housed booths for everything from auto products to what Ricky started out with, candles and knickknacks. Their booth ended up growing exponentially in sales, which proved to Ricky that his efforts of traveling around to local areas to pick up great products, which he stored in his garage, was time well spent. That venture lasted about a year and after encouragement from friends and family, Ricky decided to take the leap and signed his first lease. On February 14, 2015, he

Hōme∙ol∙o∙gy’s furniture pieces are made in the USA, typically in North Carolina. Hōme∙ol∙o∙gy also offers custom draperies, rugs, lighting, and artwork. Rest assured, all are chosen by Ricky through his OCD compulsion to excel. He is the father to two beautiful young boys, whom he adopted at infancy - Anderson, 11, and Cash, 4. Despite the two boys having different biological parents, they have the same traits of siblings of the same parents— that of being totally different. Anderson is quieter and loves the piano and art, while Cash is very “in your face” and outspoken for his age! So, if you are seeking some high-quality furniture, don’t look further than here in McKinney. Ricky and his creative team will elevate the design potential of your space to new levels and provide an experience like no other. Learn more at www.homeologyinteriors.com.

Especially on the larger construction projects, when 4-5 work crews are scheduled at a time, Sammy pays close attention to the details. He works diligently to ensure that his customers are comfortable with the process and the construction crews that are in their homes. He says that he knows his customers have placed their trust in him. His goal is to deliver on his promise of close supervision, and quality craftsmanship for an outcome that will delight his customers. When asked what he enjoys the most about owning his own business, Sammy said, "The end result." He likes taking pictures of completed projects and how happy his customers are at the end of the process. Potential customers will find several photos of a variety of completed projects on the "Gallery" page of the Elegant Floors website. There are numerous photos of floors, kitchen cabinets, and countertops, as well as a variety of remodeled showers. Throughout the year, Sammy offers special promotions to customers. He lists these special offers on his website under the "Promotions" tab as well as on the Elegant Floors Facebook page. You will want to check those out when considering a remodeling project for your home. When not working on his business, Sammy enjoys spending time with family and friends, just hanging out. He also enjoys traveling. Due to the nature of being a business owner, he can generally only take 3-4 days off at a time, which limits his travel to mostly the United States. After traveling to many states, Sammy enjoys getting back home and says that his favorite state is Texas.

cooking

If you’re a little less-experienced in the kitchen, meal kits are great for learning! Read the instructions carefully before you get started so you don’t feel frazzled while the heat is up high, and take your time. If you are a more seasoned chef, feel free to take your own spin on the recipes and add some extra flavor or swap out ingredients to make it perfect for your palate.
