Aaron and Helga Thompson, of Covington, are owners of A&H Cool Cooler Creation, a home-based business that makes University of Georgia-inspired coolers from styrofoam encased in plywood and upholstered in vinyl.
Helga Thompson sews on the decals and does the upholstering and her husband does the rest.
It helps that both are also big Georgia fans.
The business began as a hobby. Thompson was messing around in his garage making something to carry on his Kawasaki Vulcan 1600, and said “it just developed from there.”
“I figured it was something the fan could take home as useful memorabilia instead of something that just sits on a shelf,” said Thompson, a retired federal worker and veteran of Operation Desert Storm. His wife is a retired nurse.
