About Cart Dr. in Mobile AL
Cart Dr. was originally started as a small business by Art Slack. The business partnered with University of South Alabama and the Springhill Medical Center to provide golf carts for easy campus/facility transportation. Over the years the business has built a strong presence among the Mobile community but wanted to grow their reputation.
Darren and Tricia Slack, son and daughter-in-law to the owner, were living in Phoenix, Arizona when the opportunity arose for them to acquire the business and help it grow. Both now retired and looking for a more exciting employment atmosphere, jumped on the opportunity to be a part of the growing business.
In April of 2013, the couple purchased the business and has loved every minute since. Tricia, a retired nurse, is very organized and detail oriented. She works with the customers and oversees most of the business operations. Her husband Darren is hands-on with the service center and customization of the golf carts. Both work closely together making the business a growing success.
Over the past year Tricia and Darren cannot get over just how many people are interested in golf carts. Tricia and Darren truly enjoy interacting with everyone who comes into the dealership. They have met people from all over the Gulf Coast and found golf carts are not just for golfers. Parents and grandparents buy golf carts to have fun with children and make lasting memories. Something about the ride on the golf cart is timelessly fun for everyone.
Today, the Cart Dr. continues working with USA and Springhill Medical Center to provide golf cart transportation at Football games, for campus tours and transportation throughout the Medical Center facility. The team at Cart Dr. is active in the community, having just designed a customized cart for the Breast Cancer Awareness walk, which takes place every year at the end of October in downtown Mobile. As Cart Dr. continues to grow throughout the community, it also looks forward to building lasting relationships with the people who come to the dealership. Cart Dr. is a family business and they want the Gulf Coast community to be a part of that family.
“The people we are meeting are cool! The interest in golf carts crosses every demographic. We are so excited to be a part of the golf cart lifestyle group”.Tricia Slack
