British drinks cooler brand set to achieve 100% growth for third year running

British owned drinks cooler brand, Outside Gang have predicted 100% revenue growth for

the third year running.

Based in Lymm in Cheshire, Outside Gang was created in 2018 by young husband and wife

team Graham and Jess Reid. Their sustainable brand manufactures the furniture product in

the UK, and has seen sales across multiple continents, including the US, Europe and

Australia.

Their third year of operation has seen their successful trajectory continue, and have allowed

the couple to introduce plans to grow the business even further and introduce new products.

The cooler tables were designed and created by Graham in 2015 to fit a gap in the

market, and have a positive impact on people’s wellbeing both indoors and outdoors.

Although this year has seen a number of home-grown brands struggling due to the global

pandemic, Outside Gang have seen a continuation in growth and sales, all while the couple

have welcomed their second child into the world in 2020.

Graham Reid, Owner and Product Designer has highlighted how this continual growth has

given them a lift, in what could have been a difficult year for the brand:

“Given we launched our first product to the world around 24 months ago, I’m thrilled and

honoured at the support and feedback we get from our customers. I’m delighted to share

that we have seen revenue grow by 100% YOY, in our first 2, and although it’s been a tough

3rd year with covid 19, we have overcome the additional challenges we are seeing this trend

continue this year being our busiest by far.

“Our customer base and followers are growing exponentially and we can’t wait to launch

future products for our customers. Lockdowns have really highlighted the benefits of having

indoor and outdoor spaces that work for you and your family, a place to converse, relax and

play. Good furniture transforms a space, our environment enables us to live well.” he said.

Jess Reid, Brand Manager said: “2020 has been a difficult year for so many brands, and

we’re so thankful that we’ve had another successful year. We’ve had some hairy moments

due to issues that have arisen from the pandemic, but we’ve been lucky to have pulled

through and we’re both super excited for what’s next! ”

The brand is hugely focused on sustainability and having a low carbon footprint, as well as

working with British manufacturers, Outside Gang HQ is less than a mile from where

Graham and Jess live. Packaging is recyclable and all products are built to last and can be

fully recycled.

The products are available to be bought online directly from the Outside Gang website, and

are sold by third-party stockists such as Friends of Joules, Amazon, Etsy and Fy!.
