Nashville, Tennessee, has become the latest location for Firefly Forts, a business that aims to keep kids outside and away from screens. The company was founded by Mike and Kristin Scaglione in Atlanta, who were looking for ways to reduce screen time for their own kids and get them outside more.
The success of Firefly Forts has allowed the Scagliones to expand their business beyond their hometown, with franchises now operating in Miami and Nashville. However, they are facing difficult times as Mike has been diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung Cancer. Despite this challenge, they have been able to find someone to run the business in Nashville, allowing them to focus on his health and their family.
Firefly Forts has had a significant impact on families across the country, creating meaningful connections with their customers. One of their customers even turned out to be Mike’s Neurosurgeon, showcasing the far-reaching impact of their business. The Scagliones are committed to creating a legacy of helping families create fun and memorable moments, despite any challenges they may face.
Meanwhile, Carrie Sharp from Arizona is seeking to understand the school voucher debate and its potential impact on children’s education. With two boys in elementary school, she wants to be well-informed about the issue so she can make informed decisions as a mom and a taxpayer. Her research into Arizona’s 13-year-old school voucher program has given her much to think about and she believes it will do the same for others who are concerned about this issue.
Keith Maddin is excited about Firefly Forts Nashville expansion and sees it as an opportunity for him to continue doing what he loves next. Despite its successes, Firefly Forts is facing a difficult time due to Mike’s diagnosis with stage 4 lung cancer but they are fortunate enough to have found someone capable of running the business in Nashville which allows them to focus on his health while still maintaining their commitment towards helping families create fun and memorable moments together.
