Tailgating is serious business for these Lubbock brothers

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Texas Tech will face Texas Christian University on Saturday afternoon.

As the players are getting pumped to take on the Horned Frogs, fans are organizing their tailgates, full of excitement and fun.

Tailgates were setting up as early as Friday afternoon, so they'll be ready to go on Saturday.

And while everyone is having fun, one local business, a crew from Tailgate Express, is taking tailgating seriously.

"Tailgating is a serious thing, that's what we've come to learn," owner of Tailgate Express, John English says.

He says game days consist of non-stop work.

John says Tailgate Express got its unofficial start back in 2012 when he would just bring extra items in case anyone needed them.

"Thirty-three tailgates is what we have tomorrow. It started from one generator at one tailgate," he says. "Now, we have 33 tailgates where we do the whole thing."

John says it's something he truly enjoys as he gets to work with his brother, Colton who is the general manager.

"Tailgating brings us together," he says.

Tailgate Express sets up your tailgate with a tent, they offer food, beverages, TV, satellite set-up, generators and they tear down for you.

"It just happened because people just started requesting different stuff, they started requesting TVs and can you align my satellite dish," he says. "I just made the connections possible to make that happen."

The business owner says the number one goal is to make tailgating fun and have the best customer service.

"We offer our services is just so convenient for these people, because all they have to do is show up," he says. "So, when they show up to the game, their tents will already be set up and their tables and chairs will be out. And, they'll be able to just pull into these parking slots, get out of their vehicle and enjoy their tailgate."
