As I write this post, it’s draft day for the National Football League, and our Indianapolis Colts are poised to select Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck as the number one draft pick. While not all top picks succeed in the big leagues after success in college, all indications are that Andrew Luck has what it takes to become a big-time, award-winning performer on and off the field. In that way, he’ll be a lot like University Loft Company. You see, ULoft not only outperforms competitors on the field of play (that is, in college and university dorm rooms and student housing residences), but also as a corporate citizen and environmentally responsible “Friend of the World”.
Andrew Luck has worked hard to reached this moment of recognition. In fact, he works hard every day to up his game. It’s never easy to successfully transition to the pros, but Luck would be wise to follow the example not only of Peyton Manning, but also of University Loft founder and CEO James Jannetides. It was in the mid 1980s when Jannetides first created his own dorm room loft furniture configuration, and soon followed up on that success with hundreds and then thousands more student residence modular furniture arrangements. Soon, James was in the big-time business of building solid wood furniture for college and university student housing, taking on all comers and becoming a leader for others to emulate and follow. We’re confident that Andrew Luck also will soon be at the top of his game in the pros.
Yes, University Loft is the first name in solid wood, modular, green student furniture, and Luck is the last name of our new hometown quarterback. Welcome aboard, Andrew. Come visit the University Loft headquarters, factory and showroom in nearby Greenfield, Indiana sometime. You’ll be inspired by our dedication to excellence. We’re already inspired by yours.
