Doug Robinson began his industry career in sales at Orlando’s Rec Warehouse in 1992, eventually becoming a regional manager and moving to Virginia Beach. As Rec Warehouse met financial difficulty, Robinson began to dream of being his own boss. He opened Virginia Leisure in Chesapeake, selling outdoor living products. His company carries six brands of hot tubs. “We want anybody who wants to take advantage of hydrotherapy and hot water wellness to be able to afford it,” Robinson says.
