Give us a brief introduction to who you are and to your business (what you do):
My name is George Tucker, owner of The Malted Monkey. The Malted Monkey is a fun concept we created by building a ropes course above a restaurant and milk shake bar. This is a high energy fun spot for the whole family.
Tell us about how your business got started:
We visualized bringing some sort of family friendly attraction to the Bagnell Dam Strip and when we figured out how to intertwine the restaurant business (which is in our blood) and adventure park we knew we had a concept we wanted to make a reality.
Why do you do what you do?
I love it!
What are some things that help you stand out as a business?
Great team members
What do you envision for the future of your business?
We never consider a project complete so all of our concepts will continue to evolve.
What is something that inspires you each day in your work?
Being able to work in a business I love, with team members I love.
What are some great things about the local area?
Best place to live in the world, I cant explain it.
