Easley Chamber Welcomes Xtreme Carts
The Greater Easley Chamber of Commerce officially welcomed its newest member
The Easley Chamber of Commerce officially welcomed Xtreme Carts to the Easley business community on Wednesday.
Xtreme Carts has been in operation since 2004 when owners Travis and Angel Weathers set up shop on Latham Road. In April they moved the retail location to its new home at at 6129 Calhoun Memorial Highway.
Angel said it began as a hobby for Travis and his sons- Preston, 13, and Cameron, 7.
"We bought a golf cart for them to tinker around with and it just took off from there," Angel said.
The family-owned business makes custom made golf carts and four-wheel drive hunting vehicles which they sell locally and nationally from the Xtreme Carts retail store and through the company's website. The shop also carries outdoor gear, hunting gear and also repairs carts and hunting vehicles.
The Weathers even have their own patented hunting cart — the Stalker XTV. Travis designed the Stalker XTV solely for hunting purposes and said he's sold the carts to hunters as far away as Iowa and Texas.
Travis began his career working in paint and body shops for businesses in Greenville and decided to launch his own business here in Easley so he could spend more time with his family.
"It's just fun to be able to work with my kids around," Weathers said.
Members of the Greater Easley Chamber of Commerce gathered at the store on Thursday to officially welcome Extreme Carts to the Easley business community.
"We're proud to have Xtreme Carts as the newest member of the Chamber of Commerce," Greater Easley Chamber of Commerce President Kent Dykes said. "We wish them success in their business and their family."
