Stockdale News: Business news: From lights to lodging
By Sarah Holguin
Stockdale consists of many businesses that generously sponsor the Stockdale Chamber of Commerce. One of these businesses is Hodge Electric, located at 12120 C.R. 401. The business was established in 2010, and is currently managed by Wesley Hodge Sr.
When asked what inspired him to begin his own company, he cleverly stated, “Working for other companies for 15 years really made me think ... if I can work to make somebody else money, why not start a company to make my own money?”
His goal is to “make a living,” while making everyone else’s easier. They specialize in residential, light commercial, and RV parks, and can install fixtures and ceiling fans, build meter loops, and handle small business wiring and other electrical needs. Hodge Electric sponsors many events such as the Stockdale Watermelon Jubilee and Rodeo, Little League teams, and the high school athletic program.
All Tucked Inn
Another business sponsoring the Stockdale Chamber of Commerce is All Tucked Inn.
The business was established in 2011 and is currently managed by Heather Stahl. She agreed with owner Jennifer Baird that “with all of the [Eagle Ford shale] oil workers coming into town, they would need a place to stay.” Their goal is to “provide housing for anyone in need.”
All Tucked Inn also sponsors many events such as the Watermelon Jubilee, H.O.P.E. Day, the Little League, and multiple sports within the Stockdale Brahma and Lady Brahma athletic departments.
Both businesses are greatly appreciated for their hard work and loving contributions to the Stockdale Chamber of Commerce along with the community as a whole.
Junior Journalists in Charlin Akin’s journalism class at Stockdale High School are highlighting members of the Stockdale Chamber of Commerce on this community page as a service to the chamber. The Junior Journalist program is part of the Wilson County News’ Newspapers In Education program.
