You've seen them along the side of the street on hot summer days- twisting, spinning and twirling- cajoling you to join the gym or check out the new luxury condos. But who are they, anyway?
Aarrow Ads, an international franchise with locations ranging from Atlanta, Georgia to Zagreb, Croatia, takes the art of Arrow Advertising to a new level. Around since 2002, they have trained thousands of spinners who promote products and services covering just about every industry from fast food to the military.
The Northern Virginia Chapter, managed by veteran spinner Michael Patterson, has mandatory work-outs in the summer where the spinners, mostly young men, learn a variety of techniques as well as their presentation and showmanship skills. The emphasis is on friendliness, professionalism and above all, enthusiasm.
