The Hot Seat: John Arie, Sr. & John Arie, Jr.
John Arie, Sr. & John Arie, Jr.
Owner & Chief Executive Officer,
Fun Spot America Theme Parks
What started merely as a way to work through college, John Arie, Sr., realized that his job at Lil’ 500 Go-Karts in Maitland had “huuuge” potential. He eventually became part-owner and his career in the entertainment park industry grew to the development of parks in Maryland, South Carolina and Florida. Son, John Arie, Jr., has been involved in every aspect of the multi-million dollar family-owned business since the beginning. Both John & John, Jr. now have their sights set on a 12 acre expansion in Central Florida, but first they’ll take the Hot Seat to share their story.
The Hot Seat Story:
Hear from Central Florida’s top entrepreneurs as they take on the hot seat and tell their story about building a successful business. We’ll provide the lunch, you provide (some of) the questions.
Typically, advice from the leaders of multi-million dollar companies would not come cheap, but now you have the opportunity to glean valuable knowledge and lessons for the price of a sandwich. Featured speakers will be questioned about their experience and business acumen in areas of finance, HR, marketing and sales.
