What's In A Name
The most frequently asked question at Fat Andy's is about our name. Several years ago when Andy Walsh, the founder of Fat Andy's Hardwoods, was in the lumber business on the west coast he decided to invest in a sandwich shop with his brother-in-law.The sandwich shop was to be called Pat and Andy's. And Andy's daughter, who was two years old at the time, pronounced the name Phat Andy's. Hence, the name Fat Andy's.
Fat Andy's was not a big success as a sandwich shop and closed about two years later. When Andy sold his interest in his west coast lumber business and moved to Maine, he used the Fat Andy's Corporate Charter from the old sandwich shop to make a lumber shipment and we became Fat Andy's.
