Jet's Outdoor Power was born out of a common interest two friends (James & Eric) had in Outdoor Power Equipment, Powersports, Golf Carts and RC cars (Toys). At some point we decided that we would try our hand at running our own business. In the late winter of 2016 we purchased 68 used golf carts and began operating a small service shop with part-time hours out of a then vacant building in Carroll, Iowa. In the spring of 2017 we took on the full Briggs & Stratton line of power products including Ferris, Simplicity and Snapper. At that time Eric quit his day job and went full time. During the summer of 2017 we added a RC racetrack, became a Traxxas RC dealer and began selling used powersports equipment.
In early 2018 we purchased H&H sports, a golf cart retail, rental and service business, from Denny Halder who was retiring. We moved the golf cart business into our existing location which had grown to occupy the entire no longer vacant and refurbished building. By the spring of 2018 James also quit his day job and went full time at Jet's. We now operate a full-time business that sells a full line of outdoor power equipment featuring brands like Ferris, Simplicity, Snapper, Briggs & Stratton and Redmax. We have an indoor carpet RC track and serve as a full line dealer for Traxxas and Redcat Racing products. Our golf cart business consists of a rental fleet of nearly 350 golf carts which are leased on seasonal and special event basis for golf courses, weddings, fairs, concerts, races and just about any other event you could think of. Our store occupies 19,000 square feet on the west side of Carroll.
We are proud of what we have built and we intend to continue to build. However, we know we can't build and sustain without our customers. We pledge to serve you, the customer, in the best way we know how while trying to have a good time doing so. We live our mantra and will as long as we are in business: Sales. Service. Fun.
