Based in Elkhorn, Nebraska, he sold door-to-door throughout the Midwest until 1982 when he relocated to Dallas to work for a national lighting distributor. 13 years later, Kim invested a small amount of savings into starting the company that would become 1000Bulbs.com. The company's first office was in the back bedroom of Kim's home in Mesquite, Texas and consisted of two sawhorses and an old door for a desk.The 1000Bulbs.com web site was launched in 1995.
