Contacts, CEDIA ‘08 Edition: Gary, Jacquie and Jason Kukuk, WOW Electronics (Yuma, AZ)
You may know Yuma, Arizona, as the lettuce capital of America. No? Well, it most certainly is. In fact, for four months of every year, 90 percent of all the lettuce in the U.S. comes directly from the fields surrounding Yuma. For the owners/founders of WOW Electronics, a custom install operation on 4th Street in Yuma, that cash crop is an
important motivator...it enables their customers to invest in home theater systems for their not-at-all-shabby farmhouses.
“A lot of our wealthiest clients are down-to-earth farmers,” said Jacquie Kukuk, who founded the business with her husband Gary in 1974. “Some guy’ll come treckin’ in with muddy boots, but he’s worth millions. You just never know!”
