Our team leader, and the proprietor of Royal Billiard & Recreation, Audra is the heartbeat of our team.
In 1982, Audra’s parents, Frank and Connie, opened Royal Billiard & Recreation in Montgomeryville, near 5-points intersection. For the next decade, as they grew the business, Audra had very little interest in joining her family in selling pool tables and other home recreation games.
That’s not to say that Audra didn’t help out! Her first job at the store was preparing pool table rails for installation by stapling the cloth on them. And, as a teenager, her favorite job was “guarding” the hot tubs at night, with her friends’ “help”, when they were in on display in the parking lot. (She’ll readily admit that was more of a party than a job!)
Upon graduating high school, Audra headed off to college and soon started a career as a day trader of municipal bonds. And, for a time, Audra continued her education in Texas. While on summer break in 1993, Audra came back to Pennsylvania to assist her parents at the store. She never planned on staying… but here she still is today!
Why did Audra changer her mind and stay after the summer of ’93? She’ll happily tell you that it was the people. She fell in love with helping customers to find the perfect gaming table for their whole family to enjoy. She also was enjoying rekindling a close relationship with her parents while working with quality products provided by conscientious manufactures.
