John Lingo worked for years at Walt Disney World in the food and beverage division. Of his many accomplishments, one that stands out is taking from concept to fruition The Empress Lilly Riverboat Restaurant. It featured nine lounges and restaurants on three decks and It launched in April 1977.
Always the innovator, Mr. Lingo knew that presentation and packaging are the keys to success in the hospitality industry.
That intimate understanding of the industry led to the birth of the Tooters test tube shooter in the mid-1980s in Brevard County, FL.
Mr. Lingo originated the idea of using test tubes as a vessel for serving shots. He, personally, sold glass test tubes door-to-door to bars and nightclubs, along with serving trays, filler bottles and drink recipes. His pitch: presenting shots in this way would create fun and excitement for the customer, and help establishments make more money as a result.
The concept was an immediate hit. The Tooters business consistently grew and the Tooters test tube shot soon became a national sensation. Over 30 years later, Tooters strives to be creative and generate fun and excitement for our customers.
