Hello! I am Randall Lavender —the Owner of Audio Outlet. I started my background as a PRT Coordinator for the U.S. Navy. During my eight years in the navy, I moved up to an air traffic controller for the U.S. Navy making sure all planned arrivals and departures ran as efficient and safe as possible.
Born with entrepreneurship in my veins, at the age of 10, I would plant and grow vegetables in my parent’s backyard then sell them at local farmers markets in the Dallas-Fort Worth MetroPlex. At the age of 15 I had my first employed job as a bicycle technician.
I attended Texas State University (formerly know as Southwest Texas University) where I received a Bachelors in Communications. Since then I’ve started and developed many successful businesses in the San Marcos area. In 2002 I took over ownership of Texas Health & Racquet Club, previously known as Jim’s Gym for over 20 years.
If I’m asked “Where will Audio-Outlet be in 5 years?” I’ll answer: “Still being Hays County’s #1 Audio Dealer!”
