What started out as a hobby has now become a very successful company. Fatwallet.com works with five hundred merchants and nearly 200,000 daily visitors to match deals with deal-seekers. Company founder Tim Storm is growing his dream even more by expanding from his Machesney Park building to a new, much larger structure in Rockton.
Plans are in the works to build a football field sized facility where the former wagon wheel resort used to be. Storm says the new site may need several more jobs. He chose the Rockton location because of its historical significance.
Storm is scheduled to close on the property Monday. He will pay 1.4 million dollars for the land. He hopes to break ground next spring on the new home for Fatwallet.com.
