The FANTASY FACTORY was started in the 1970s by Tommy Johns. He started out just doing comic conventions and shows. In May of 1979, he opened the first storefront on East Morris Street in Dalton, Georgia, and there has been a Fantasy Factory store ever since. In the early 1990s, he had three stores in Georgia and Tennessee. Fantasy Factory # 2 was located in Calhoun, GA and Fantasy Factory # 3 was in Chattanooga, TN. The store in Chattanooga was closed in the mid 1990s. He sold the store in Calhoun to Mike Babb in 1996.
