Arkansas Procurement Technical Assistance Center Success Story: Legacy Transit Lines, LLC

by Kim Magee - February 16, 2021

Legacy Transit Lines Owners and staffMario and Tammy Cunningham started Legacy Transit Lines in Texas. When they saw opportunities in northwest Arkansas for their business, they moved to Arkansas and incorporated their business in the state in September 2016. 

They are a family-owned, full-service moving company based in Fayetteville and qualify as a Woman Owned Small Business. Services provided by Legacy Transit include residential, corporate relocation, military, senior, and long distance moving. 

During a late-night online researching session, Mario Cunningham discovered the services offered by Arkansas APEX Accelerator. They became a client in 2017. 

Legacy Transit Lines received its first government contract in December 2020. It is a four-year, $1.5 million contract with Fort Sill, a United States Army post in Oklahoma. The scope of work consists of packing and crating for military personnel between Oklahoma and Arkansas. 

Cunningham mentioned the government contract coming at the perfect time as he and Tammy were uncertain as to what the future looked like for their business during the pandemic. They had previously serviced many large corporate accounts and senior living centers, all of which were forced to put their own services on hold.

Arkansas APEX Accelerator congratulates the Cunninghams and their company on securing what we foresee as being their first of many government contracts as they are always looking for ways to improve and expand their business. We are happy to have been of assistance in securing a government contract for one of our clients during uncertain times.

“Max has assisted us in many ways including the Woman Owned Small Business certification process, sharing bid opportunities, assistance with Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS), Commercial and Government Entity Code (CAGE), Small Business Administration Dynamic Small Business Search (SBA DSBS) capabilities, North American Industry Classification System (NAICS), and System for Award Management (SAM) registration. We want to thank Max for his help thus far. He has been extremely helpful, and we could not have gotten this far and won this government contract without his help,” said Mario Cunningham.
