The Hutkay Story!
Back in 2015, three squash enthusiasts, over a dinner, discussed the challenges associated with getting access to quality squash gear and apparel in the United States. They talked about that in U.S. there are few options available for squash products online and it is almost impossible to find any squash gear or apparel at local sports equipment retailers.
As the dinner dialog evolved, a quick online search led them to some interesting facts on squash players and growth of the sport in the United States:
Squash players and fans represent a highly motivated demographic of men, women and youth. Squash players tend to be highly educated, of which 98% are college graduates and 57% have advanced degrees. The U.S. squash demographic is extremely passionate about the sport of squash and are deeply interested in having access to best squash gear and apparel.
This research was intriguing and begged the question, “What if we created an online marketplace that provides the best available squash gear?"
Over the course of next year and a half they kept talking about the why-what-and-how of an online squash market endeavor. They reflected on what would make them different, why would such an online marketplace be supported by squash enthusiasts, and how to make it a reality.
On the 1st of July 2016, Hutkay.fit was born as an online marketplace for Squash Gear & Apparel with lean staff and a warehouse in central Houston.
