BPM 11 2021

BUSINESS PERSON OF THE MONTH
NOVEMBER 2021

At the October 18, 2021, City Commission Meeting, Mayor Brian D. Sackett nominated Amanda & Jon Gunther, Owners of Six Flags Nursery Supply, LLC, located at 1600 N Ronald Reagan Blvd., to receive the Business Person of the Month Award for November 2021.

Amanda holds 2 associate degrees from Kaiser University; one in business management and another in accounting.  She and Jon have two amazing children, Kirk age 7, and Willow age 4.  

After college, Amanda went on to work for her father at his mulch manufacturing plant, K&B Landscape Supply, located in Deland. She started outside as a laborer to learn the business from the bottom up. She then helped her father run the business and managed 10 semi-trucks daily.  In 2013, she and her husband Jon purchased Six Flags.  It was only bulk mulch when they started and they have added bagged mulch, bulk and bagged rocks, and soil.  In addition, to satisfy their passion for water features and ponds, they became a distributor for Aquascape. Locally owned and operated, Amanda and her business provide a variety of plant products such as topsoil, mulches, and organic planting goods and deliver top-quality certified mulches that eliminate concerns for weed and clearing debris contaminates.
 
Six Flags Nursery Supply, LLC emphasizes community involvement and has donated to many local schools, including Longwood Elementary for their gardens that the students grow and learn in. They have also donated mulch to the Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens in Sanford and are involved with surrounding municipalities to assist with grounds maintenance needs. 

The City of Longwood is truly pleased to have Six Flags Nursery Supply, LLC and Owners Amanda & Jon Gunther as part of its business community.  

Congratulations Six Flags Nursery!!
