Why The South Outside?
We wanted to focus on bringing southern businesses, specifically outdoor companies, to the forefront of the digital age. You may find a partner here or there on our website that you wouldn't consider "South" or "Outside" but it's 2018 and we were afraid of the repercussions. No, honestly we are here to help anyone who may need a hand! We do, however, focus on doing business in the Southern United States. Our state list includes but is not limited to, Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Lousiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, West Virginia, Virginia. We are honored when any company chooses us to work with!
Also, our warehouse and offices are located in beautiful Chattanooga, TN. That's another reason to have South in your name, we guess.
Who Are Y'all Again?
The South Outside was founded by Jeffery (Jeff) Turner & Jacob (Jake) Parnell
- Nice to meet ya!
You'll talk to Jeff, he does that kind of thing. Jeff has over 7 years experience in the outdoor industry, both brick & mortar retail, and e-commerce. You might have seen Jeff around if you're into fly fishing, or have mistaken him for Bigfoot (Hair, not height) in the North Georgia mountains.
You'll see Jake's work on the internet. He lives in front of a computer, generally a couple. Jake has over 7 years experience building websites. He spent many years wholesaling cars online, but we don't hold that against him, not anymore.
Jeffery and Jacob are both from Georgia and grew up in Athens, GA.
