Gary Chipp founded Fat Baggers Inc. in 2004, an aftermarket company for Harley-Davidson bagger models. He grew up in his father's dealership in Russell, Iowa and began assisting at the shop in seventh grade. Today, he works with his own children, Alexa and Kamren Chipp.
FBI has continuously grown, especially since the onset of COVID-19, gaining customers, increasing staff and obtaining more equipment. Chipp jumped on the opportunity to purchase a year's worth of inventory and raw materials before it became unavailable, allowing FBI to provide product while other manufacturers were unable to.
"It worked," Chipp said. "I think we currently have a 99% fill rate."
