About Our Outdoor Lighting Franchise
We Pioneered the Outdoor Lighting Industry in 1995
With more than 150,000 installations completed, we know what it takes to do outdoor lighting right. No other company has more experience than Outdoor Lighting Perspectives. So, when we design, install, and maintain our clients’ systems, they can be confident in the results.
Outdoor Lighting Perspectives is the Largest Player in the Industry
We are not a fad-based business. We tap into desires to improve and maintain beautiful homes, which is a core American value. Beautiful outdoor lighting is our signature. From pools to playgrounds, backyard grills to gazebos, landscapes to lounge areas — if it can be illuminated, we’ve transformed it with inspired professional outdoor and landscape lighting.
Our mission at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives is to help our valued clients celebrate and enjoy outdoor living. We do this by extending our clients’ leisure time outdoors while enhancing the beauty, safety, and security of their homes.
Our sister brands include:
Archadeck®—North America’s leading designer and builder of outdoor living spaces.
Conserva Irrigation—The only irrigation franchise founded on professional irrigation services that conserve the earth’s precious water.
Superior Fence & Rail – The country’s only nationwide fence franchise.
The Empower Brands’ Code of Values shows how our mission will be accomplished. These core values define our culture and our relationships with our franchise partners. We communicate our core values in the phrase “LIVE WELL.”
Lifestyle: Helping our clients celebrate the good life outdoors.
Integrity: At every touch point in our service, products, attitude and communication, it defines us.
Visionary: Innovative thinking in all capacities, from new markets to new outdoor living trends.
Enriching Lives: Helping our franchise partners meet personal and lifestyle goals.
World Class: Passionately delivering unparalleled products and client service.
Enthusiasm: It’s why we get up in the morning.
Leadership: Leading by example and attracting those who take ownership and accountability.
Laughter: Without laughter, it would just be work.
Franchisee satisfaction is important to us. That’s why each year we have the Franchise Research Institute anonymously interview our franchisees to garner feedback on their happiness with us. Every year since 2012 we have been consistently named a World-Class Franchise based on the results of the survey.
Here are the highlights from our latest study.
What attracted me to OLP was really the transformation of our client's homes. Looking back, I'm very thankful that we sell a fun product. It's not an emergency, it's not the roof caving in, they don't have to spend it. They get to spend the money on their home.- Brandon & Kristen Parker
I'm a former Marine, so being able to take the discipline and all the things I learned as a Marine, and as a business person, has allowed me to transition very easily into a career at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives. OLP has allowed me to accomplish my goals, both professionally and personally. The opportunity to set my own way of life, along with looking at where I want to be a year from now, five years from now, twenty years from now - it's been a wonderful opportunity. It's been wonderful to share this experience with my entire family, they probably know just as much about lighting now as I do today.- George Council
The OLP support team has been great from day one. I think the transition has been very smooth, and the things that we didn't know how to do very well, that's where the support team for our franchise has been able to come in and help us troubleshoot some of those things where maybe our background didn't support those areas as much. I've been apart of a couple franchise systems already, and this one is by far is the most accessible. We were able to get all of our questions answered to decide whether or not if this was going to be a great fit for us. And certainly it did turn out to be. The culture is just second to none - the camaraderie, the willingness to learn. All the different owners were open for us to come out to see their locations, to take tours, meet their employees. Really off the front end, we knew we were in a comfortable place, in a place where we thought we could be successful.- Mitch and Frank Sweeney
Outdoor lighting isn’t just what we do—it’s what we’re passionate about. You’ll see the difference in our premium quality materials, our attention to detail, and consistently responsive client service. But the biggest difference is our professional lighting design, which adds the “wow” to the watts and gives our lighting systems stunning aesthetic appeal.
