College Brothers Make Climbing Gear in Chattanooga
Kelsey and Conner Scott's apartment boasts anything but your typical college student's living room. "We took home ec class in high school," Kelsey says. "It was kind of as a joke class to get an easy A and not do much work. We learned how to sew in there."
"We got into climbing right as we learned how to sew," his brother Conner says, "and I said 'Oh, we can totally make chalk bags.'"
Now these two brothers operate Granola Products out of their shared apartment. "I funded it myself so we had to start really small," Kelsey says.
Soon business spiked, and interest in the brothers products could only climb.
"We make backpacks, the chalk bags and chalk pots for climging, also coffee kits," Kelsey explains.
And the brother say they couldn't ask for a more perfect place. "It's probably the biggest outdoor community in the United States. We feel like Chattanooga's the best opportunity we could have stumbled into."
