About Us

Our Journey!

 Hello, my name is Brandon. I was born and raised in Douglasville, Georgia, just west of Atlanta. I am a West Georgia University Alumni with a degree in Marketing and minor in Real Estate. I married a beautiful woman in April 2012 and we are expecting our first baby girl, Rebekah Lynne in July 2014. I am one of four children, with a brother and two sisters. My father has owned a metal fabrication business for 25 plus years. He has a very entrepreneurial spirit and is hands on and very creative. Like my father, I love to build, create, and design all types of projects, from custom furniture to outdoor games such as cornhole boards. I truly enjoy seeing these products develop from an idea to a finalized product. 


I began building cornhole boards in the summer of 2011 somewhat on accident. A friend asked me to build a set of cornhole boards for her parents as a gift. I though the request was odd as I had never done this before but that didn’t stop me. I created a set of boards that overjoyed her parents. I asked her why she requested me to build this set and soon realized she had confused me with another friend that built a set she had seen in the past but was impressed by the quality of my work. From then on word of mouth and Facebook was my main source of orders. Family, friends and locals in the community began hearing about our products and requested a variety of designs. 

During this time I was working in my sixth year of a full time corporate job. I was building and creating boards in the evenings and weekends with the help of my wife, brother, sisters, and friends that could lend a hand. I created a website and soon discovered Etsy. I will say that these Etsy orders are what helped propel me to the next level of production. Since opening my Esty shop we have moved out of our home garage workshop and into a 4,000 square foot state of the art workshop to better accommodate the number of orders we were receiving. I took the leap of faith and began the company West Georgia Cornhole, LLC and this became my full time job in June 2013. We also brought on two part time employees to better assist with the day to day production and shipping of the boards. 
With the increase in orders also came the increase in the intricacy of the designs. I began watching instructional videos and teaching myself how to utilize Photoshop. I have since taken courses and learned more about Photoshop and Illustrator. With this knowledge it allows me to create unique and intricate designs for our customers. 

With the increased desire of the “wrapped” boards and custom decals that we sell and with the new expanded space of the shop we purchased a wide format digital printer to better control the quality of the designs and volume of the prints. This has allowed us to also venture into other new products such as banners, signs, decals, and car wraps. I am excited to see where and how this business will continue to grow. I love working with customers to create new designs and strive to provide the best customer service and a quality product that we both can be proud to show off.

Well 2015 is upon us! A lot has changed from the above, in order to meet the propelling demand from our awesome customers! We have expanded our initial production area by double, we now have several full time employees and multiple college part time helpers. We have expanded our product lines to washer toss games, ladder golf, canvas wall art, reclaimed barn wood wall art, and added a few cool new upgrades to our already awesome cornhole board sets, and more sweet upgrades in the pipeline.

Hope to hear from you soon and we will keep you updated with our Journey to "Create Outdoor Enjoyment One Board at a Time!!"
