Tom’s Amusement

Tom’s Amusement supplies gaming machines such as air hockey tables, pool tables, pinball machines, jukeboxes, and more. Tom and Emily Dunn started the company in 1984 in Blue Ridge, and today their products and services are offered in bars, bowling alleys, and skating rinks across Georgia. Emily Dunn has been the CEO since 2002, making a name for herself in the United States amusement industry while earning numerous accolades.

“With our previous waste service provider, we were experiencing delayed pickups and higher pricing, and Rubicon solved those issues. Rubicon saved our company money and gave us the flexibility of scheduling pickups when we needed them. Scheduling a pickup via the Rubicon app makes it quick and convenient. The savings from switching to Rubicon gave us room in our maintenance budget to add to our cleaning services. Rubicon has been great with customer service and response.” — Brian Deyton, Chief Operating Officer, Tom’s Amusement.

They are reliable and the cost savings allowed us to hold our prices down longer. We can’t thank them enough for being a thoughtful company. The peace of mind helps us concentrate on providing better goods and services to our customers.” — Don Obenauer, Crankandstein.

In over 25 years of business, they have grown their operation to become one of the leading textile importers, manufacturers, and distributors in the United States.

“[We experienced] very high costs and inconsistent service [with our old provider]. [With Rubicon, we receive] consistent service, back office support, and great online tools. It was a pleasure to get a service at a reasonable cost and the entire team from start to finish was very helpful!” – Deepa Sharamrup, Vice President, Emdee International.
