The uplifting story of the Florida Everblades & The Hertz Arena

“My original partner wanted to sell the arena and the hockey team. We looked at many options. We had helped put hockey on the map in Florida, yet the building needed care and investment to fix flaws. Enter the Hoffmann Family of Companies.

We hit it off immediately. The negotiations were a hard bargain for all, but it was all above board with genuine straight talk. After the deal closed everything just got better and better. Immediately. I feel blessed to have them as partners.”
