One family business is making a splash in the local economy.
Steve Wright and his family took over Escape Outdoors’ kayak rental in September and in recent months, business has been booming.
Now averaging about 100 people on the weekends, Wright said they can’t handle the recent influx of paddlers. They are looking to invest in more boats for the newly named business, Savannah Rapids Kayak Rental.
“We have 40 kayaks and on the weekends that just doesn’t seem to be enough anymore,” he said.
