If itâ€™s Sunday, thatâ€™s probably not Breck Slaughter you see pedaling his three-wheel adult tricycle on the sidewalks of A1A Beach Boulevard advertising a variety of area business.
The two shared tales Friday of how Breckâ€™s business was founded after the family moved from Delaware in 2008 and Mark and Brooke Slaughter spent several years trying to â€œget good job placementâ€ for their younger son.
It was Brooke, says her husband, who came up with the idea of the tricycle billboard business, Breckâ€™s Beach Billboards, after Breck was introduced to his first three-wheel tricycle.
Breckâ€™s Beach Billboards was founded about a year ago. Douglas Burnett, St. Johnâ€™s Law Group, was the first customer. Burnett, who is also attorney for the St. Augustine Beach Commission, worked with the Slaughter family and the commission to change a city ordinance to allow Breckâ€™s business.
