    Chris Carpenter Owner

    Chris Carpenter is the owner of College Hunks of Knoxville, which opened its doors in 2015 to serve the Knoxville area and beyond. Chris’s family has always had the entrepreneurial spirit — they’ve been running motels, farms, corn mazes, and rental homes since the early 1900s. While attending East Tennessee State University for Business Management, Chris realized he wanted to run a small business. He wanted the opportunity to promote and give back to the future college-aged leaders of this country in a positive environment. It took him five years to find the right fit, but he eventually found College Hunks and hasn’t looked back. Chris is an active member of the Knoxville Chamber of Commerce, Entrepreneurs of Knoxville, and Knoxville Business Builders.
