A Fun Fact About Big Ass Fans

The company started out solving a need for dairy barns, where cows needed to be comfortable to produce more milk. So it’s somewhat appropriate (emphasis on ‘somewhat’) that the company’s mascot is a donkey named Fanny; so called after a real donkey from Kentucky who lives forever in the Big Ass Fans logo.
