Buying a Totally Nutz franchise was a dream come true for Karen and Craig Meadows. Craig was able to quit his job in the oil and gas field, working in the middle east, and become a business owner which meant more time with his family.
Karen was a stay at home mother and children’s book author. “Being able to stay close to home and family, was perfect for us”, said Karen.
Wendell is Craig’s father and a partner in their Totally Nutz franchise business. “We expect to have a lot of good clean fun. As Red Skelton said, “I’m nuts, and I know it! As long as I make ‘em laugh, they ain’t going to lock me up”, joked Wendell.
“We’ve had great support from corporate. We feel like our potential for growth gets stronger with each event and each experience. We’ve been able to work as a family and teach our children skills and a work ethic they will use in their own lives”, stated Karen.
The brand is a family affair for Craig and Karen, with their two older children helping them with their events, social media, and daily operations.
Their partnerships have included the Auto Zone Park (Memphis Redbirds) and Ole Miss Vaught Hemingway Stadium. They have also worked many local events in their area.
