In August 2003, GhettoWorks Corporation (GWC) was formed.
Business prospered in the "Ghetto" while Dean and Kellie maintained full-time jobs elsewhere.
Eventually it became overwhelming as a part-time venture. Dean went full-time at GWC in 2004. In
2005, GWC applied for a dealer agreement with SeaDoo/BRP. To their delight, they were awarded
the agreement in late April 2005. The Goodall's moved operations to Heber Springs, Arkansas at what
used to be the "Funland" amusement park. Business has thrived for GWC positioned about 1/2 mile
south of DamSite Marina on Highway 25B.
GhettoWorks Corporation altered it's name slightly in early 2009 to make it a little more clear what
GhettoWorks stood for. With an overwhelming response to keep the "Ghetto" name, GhettoWorks
Corporation became GhettoWorks Marine & More! Now, GhettoWorks offers sales and service of
new SeaDoo Personal Watercraft and citEcar Electric Golf Carts. We offer a fully equipped Service
Department and Parts Department for all your marine maintenance needs; we service most brands of
personal watercraft as well as boats and ATVs from SeaDoo to Kawasaki to Yamaha and more!. All

In fall 2002, Dean and Kellie found the remodeling of their home had
spilled piles of tattered remains into their yard. These remains were
accompanied by mechanical projects that Dean was working on. A
once beautiful landscape had become a qualified mess. The couple
jokingly dubbed their property the "Ghetto". Kellie painted a "Ghetto"
sign depicting images representing the 5 members of their immediate
family and their pets. Dean hung the sign at the entrance to their
property where it hangs today. As the news of Dean's skills for
repairing watercraft and ATV's traveled, his mechanical projects grew
in numbers. People sought out his abilities showing up at the "Ghetto"
from as far away as Nashville. It became apparent to the Goodall's
that they needed to become "legit". They decided to include the
"Ghetto" name in their business name, as it indicated the hard work
and real beginning of their business.
