The Florida Weekly Business Observer recently wrote an article about the owners of Wooten’s. Here’s an excerpt:
Since they acquired Wooten’s one year ago, the Patels estimate 100,000 visitors have come through the gates of the property that hugs U.S. 41. So far, they’ve spent $600,000 fixing up the place, including animal enclosures that house 60 alligators, two panthers, two Siberian tigers, one lion and a bobcat. When they’re done, the Patels estimate they will have spent $1 million.
