Entrepreneur Crush of the Week: Buddie Daniel

The Fourth of July is coming up & you know what that means!!!!!! We, as a nation, come together to celebrate our independence from Great Britain almost 241 years ago, cookout with our friends, family, & neighbors, & shoot off fireworks. Lots & lots & lots of fireworks!

Until 2015, it was illegal to sale or purchase fireworks in the state of Georgia. Many people remember driving across the border to make their purchases but times have certainly changed! & thanks to Buddie Daniel, owner of Brunswick's Velocity Zone Fireworks, you only need to drive but a few minutes to this 11,000 square foot showroom to acquire all the fireworks your little heart desires!

Velocity Zone Fireworks officially opened its doors on May 27, 2017 & business has been booming since! (Pun totes intended.) Buddie says he's always loved fireworks & was driven to start selling them after four years of retirement. But this is not his first experience with owning a business; he founded TAPCO & sold it in 2012 after 25 solid years. Aside from selling fireworks, Buddie spends his spare time walking the beach & picking up trash with his girlfriend (thank you Buddie & Donna!!!) & spending quality time with friends & Precious, his diva of a pet potbellied pig.

At Velocity Zone Fireworks, you can expect to find a wide selection of inventory priced way below MSRP, especially if you love the sparklers & fountains or the big stuff that's loaded to the maximum allowed by law at low prices & no gimmicks of high prices & BOGO scams. -& expect a 10% discount if you're in the military, a police officer, or a firefighter.



Visit Velocity Zone Fireworks at 3219 Glynn Avenue, Brunswick, Georgia! Be sure to follow him on Facebook to keep up with schedules of open hours and specials!!

Please remember to be safe this Fourth of July & brush up on Georgia Law regarding the use of fireworks!
