With the right host or server configuration this theme can be plenty fast.  There is opportunity for improvement, especially with a mobile speed score on Google Page Speed Insights of 79.  If you are running the slider or images on the home page, make absolutely certain that those individual images are optimized for the web.  It wouldn’t hurt to run this site through Cloudflare and use the WP-Smush.it plugin from Yahoo!
