The Big Texan Zipline Success Story


“Friends… they cherish one another’s hopes. They are kind to one another’s dreams,” Henry David Thoreau

For two couples, friendship has been the key to their small business success. The Big Texan Zip Line is the brand new attraction at Starlight Ranch, a venture of the Big Texan Steak Ranch and Brewery along with CARD Zipline Adventures. CARD is an acronym for the four members’ names: Curtis Young, Amy Goodlin, Ron Goodlin and Dianna Young. These four wanted to bring the adventure of zipling to the Amarillo community and to anyone who passes through the area. They visited the WT Small Business Development Center for help with a business plan and financial projections, which were used to present to their local lender for funding.
