Our Story

Environeers opened its doors in 1991 as a store for environmentally friendly products. The store was the brainchild of Ann and John Krotec. But John’s thirst for adventure and experience outdoors quickly transformed the store into Sarasota’s go-to place for travel clothing and adventure gear. Word got around and folks from near and far would often visit the shop just to get a feeling of what it was like to be on a trip. Ann and John built a great team of employees with a breadth of experience in the travel and outdoor worlds. It became the destination shop for adventures across the west central coast of Florida. After more than two decades running the store, the Krotecs were ready to move on to new projects. John can now be found running Green Zone Hero, a veteran and military friendly business community.

That is where the Tracht brothers come in. Stan Tracht and John Krotec were friends from middle school – meeting in middle school detention folks (true story!) In 2014, Stan heard that John and Ann were ready to move on from Environeers, so Stan and his brother Carter made an offer the Krotecs couldn’t refuse. Stan and Carter brought a wealth of business experience to Environeers and made sure the underlying mission of providing the best travel clothing and adventure gear remained at the forefront. The awesome employees were very happy with the new owners, and together they continue to grow the store and the products offered.
