The Hughston Homes Story

Half a century ago, Edgar Hughston established Hughston Homes Builders in Columbus, Georgia with the goal of helping local families achieve their dreams of new homeownership. In 2002, Jack Hughston joined his father with the same intense passion and goals in mind.

From this humble beginning, fast forward over half-a-century of significant expansion and growth, and Hughston Homes is an Employee Owned company (ESOP) building brand new homes in several prime Georgia and Alabama locations.

In 2021, Hughston Homes proudly announced the completion of a transaction to become 100% Employee-Owned through its newly formed Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). The secret news was announced to Hughston’s employees by President Richie Eubanks at their monthly corporate meeting. Eubanks began by asking what commonality Hughston Homes had with Publix, joking that it wasn’t just the shared brand color “green” before revealing that the employees were the new owners.

“Since Hughston Homes’ formation in 1972, the company’s philosophy has been to empower its employees to treat the company as if it were their personal franchise, to build the best possible home, and to provide a first-class homeownership experience to our Hughston Homes Family. I am extremely pleased that after nearly half a century, Edgar’s passionate work has turned his dream into a reality. Our hard-working employees now have an opportunity to accumulate financial well-being not only through compensation but now through our ESOP as well. Equally, our buyers can now have an increased level of assurance that Hughston homes will be here for their new home needs well into the future… Congratulations to all!” said Eubanks.

Jack Hughston, son of Mr. Edgar and key contributor to Hughston Homes’ successes, stood proudly next to his father Edgar while speaking to the surprised employees after the announcement.

“We have a bunch of great people with great talent. We worked really hard to find an option that would allow us to keep our company how it is AND take it to the next level,” said Jack.

“To have this take place is unbelievable…for you all to be able to own it and I still get to work here! Please don’t fire me…” laughed Edgar. “I didn’t want to sell Hughston Homes to another builder and have them change the name, or quality of home, or anything like that. This is great for all of you.”

Hughston Homes was advised by Steve James, President and CEO of SCJ Fiduciary Services who specializes in employee-ownership transactions. Appointed trustee to the newly created ESOP, James’ goal is to secure a sustainable future for Hughston Homes in a manner that is highly beneficial to its employees while allowing room for excelling even faster.

“This is worth celebrating. With a strong and unique company like Hughston Homes, employee ownership is a true win/win transaction for all parties involved. I am super excited to be part of Hughston Homes’ future growth,” said Steve.

Edgar and Jack have proven to us all that when careers are built on passion, the opportunities for true fulfillment and longevity are plentiful. As a result, we make no apologies for setting high standards and our homes whole-heartedly demonstrate this.
