A Candies Coachworks purchases Fabulous Coach Lines

Posted on January 25, 2013

A Candies Coachworks Inc. purchased the motorcoach charter business of Fabulous Coach Lines.

Fabulous Coach Lines, founded in 2004, by then 17 year old Ray Land, has enjoyed a successful run in the passenger transportation industry. Through a short negotiation period, Land accepted an offer from A Candies Coachworks to acquire the motorcoach charter business in the North Florida market.

Sander Kaplan, CEO of Candies Limo and Candies Coachworks is very excited about the new book of business and additional vehicles. Candies serves groups in the Gainesville area and has recently opened an office in St. Augustine, Fla.

In the future Land will serve as a consultant for the transportation hospitality industry and is most excited about gaining his pilot’s license and writing a book. He will also continue his keynote speaking business and seeks to grow the technology business, Totuit, which he cofounded in 2011.

The Players Coach, Land’s scheduled line service to the Hard Rock Casino in Tampa, will increase service from the I-75 corridor, offering guests premium travel to the world’s fifth largest casino.
