Forté Specialty Contractors’ founder and CEO, Scott Acton, was recently interviewed by Vegas Seven, giving insight on Forté’s robust portfolio of work in Las Vegas, including their recent work with Intrigue Nightclub at Wynn. Acton also shed light on his own family’s history of thematic work with Disney and other amusement parks and films.
“Over those two decades, Acton has worked on restaurants, nightclubs and theaters while continuing the family’s legacy in amusement parks; like his father and grandfather before him, Acton still does substantial work for Disney. Up and down the Strip, there are few resorts that don’t have a Forté project: Planet Hollywood has Gordon Ramsay BURGR, The Palazzo has SushiSamba and Aria has Bardot Brasserie.”
Acton also discussed the “wow-factor” Forté is able to bring to the restaurants they build. “People come from all over the world to be entertained,” Acton says. “They want the dining experience, the show experience—they really want to be wowed.”
