Amanda Prather – Manager
Amanda has been at R & R Trikes and Outdoors from the beginning. She is Ronnie’s youngest daughter and biggest fan. Working with her dad has been a great experience and likes to joke, "Honestly, he is the only person who could work with me this long." Amanda speaks about her experience at R & R Trikes and Outdoors by saying, "Being part of a growing business is very rewarding. We started a few short years ago installing motor trike kits with no service dept or inventory. Now we have grown into a building twice the size with an amazing service department and a store inventory of over 5000 items and now we offer several different trike kits. I come to work each day and work with people who truly care about our customers and our business. When we are all are working to our highest potential, great things happen both for ourselves and the business. There is not another job I could dream of where I am rewarded daily."
