In the fall of 2011 Wes and Jackie Jeffress opened up Ville Go Kart Racing, and has seen impressive success. They sell over ten thousand rides to customers eager and excited to experience the rush of racing in a controlled and safe environment. The owners feel relieved that even though there was risk in opening the new business in this unstable economy, their hard work eventually paid off.
The go kart enterprise has been so successful that it was chosen by the readers of E-T as the best family entertainment venue in all of Erath County! The business came about in a very interesting way. Wes was on his way home from shoeing horses with his father-in-law. The two were talking about the need for entertainment in Stephenville – kids and adults. Jackie’s father then suggested a go kart place. That planted the seed in Wes’ head, and it would stay there.
The couple started researching other go kart facilities. They worked on their business plan for over two years – a big part of that was saving up funds to open it. They paid cash for their business. The success of the business is thanks to its wide appeal. Kids love the fact that they get to drive their own mini car, and adults love not having to drive cautiously like on the real road. The business sees a lot of kids, but older people love it as well. They jump right into the fun with the kids.
