WAUKESHA - Life’s good for Ken and Tracy Zettelmeier. The billiard-and-barstool tycoons have been running Master Z’s Dart & Pool Supply for more than two decades and business has been going so well that the pair have purchased a nearby property for a planned 22,000-square-foot warehouse and distribution center.

The former Palmer Company space to the northeast of Master Z’s became vacant last fall and the Zettelmeiers saw an opportunity.

“We’ve been growing steadily for quite a few years now, and we’ve experienced tremendous growth over the past five years,” Ken Zettelmeier said. “We purchased the Palmer Company property’s land and building - basically everything - and we plant to use it for a warehouse and distribution center.

“We’re also going to expand our service center for both billiards and patio furniture.”

The business provides servicing and repairs for patio furniture and billiards equipment already, but Zettelmeier said the new property will allow for a significant expansion of the service area.

The Zettelmeiers started their business 23 years ago with $100 and a few billiard and dart accessories, and have grown to fill the 16,000-square-foot showroom at 1005 Spring City Drive, just off Sunset Drive.

“Now here we are today,” Zettelmeier said. “We’ll have an almost 40,000-square-foot facility, we’ve added a few new employees - things are going really good.”
