John Difiore is the General Manager and Owner of Fun Outdoor Living, a division of Red Hot Spas Inc. Red Hot Spas is a wholesale distribution company for Spa products throughout the southeast region. Fun Outdoor living engages in full service design/build/retail sales of outdoor living and backyard products. John started the company with his wife Debbie back in 2002 as a local provider of backyard and outdoor products. The two had always had a passion for the outdoor living scene in their personal lives, being big enthusiasts of grilling, chilling, and having a good time. They decided to take John’s 20+ years experience in design and general construction and focus in on the backyard area. John and Debbie observed a lack of full service backyard companies in the market place, and created an organization that was a one-stop shop for all of an individual’s outdoor living needs.
John started in the home improvement business in 1984 in Youngstown, Ohio as an exterior design specialist. He made his way to Columbus, Ohio to attend Ohio State University, where he continued working in the same industry. His expertise in outdoor design fast tracked him to a management role, where he quickly became a leader in outdoor innovation and design. John was in charge of a large staff of designers and project managers, helping to revolutionize and innovate unique backyard projects. He always had an ambition to have his own company, and looked to start up in an area where outdoor living was a big part of the daily life. This vision brought him to Charlotte, N.C. where he has been successful in establishing himself and Fun Outdoor Living as a leading provider of backyard and outdoor living areas for thousands of families here in the Charlotte area.
John’s years of experience in customer service, coupled with his superior ability in design and project management, has allowed Fun Outdoor Living to become one of the industry leaders here in the Carolinas! John resides in Mint Hill with his wife Debbie and his three kids. When John’s not actively involved in the production and customer service end of the company, which is rare, he enjoys spending time with his family at the lake and his backyard living area. The family enjoys fun in the sun, and John and Debbie bring that environment to work with them every day.
