In the fall of 2011, during your otherwise run of the mill college football game, Sterling Wilson made an observation. In the crowd of adoring fans, everyone was decked out with team hoodies, hats, and foam fingers, but no sunglasses. Where were the sunglasses?
With this observation, determination, and a heavy dosage of entrepreneurial spirit, Sterling and his high school friend Erin Reilly, were able to find a factory to manufacture 2,000 sunglasses with their college’s logo printed on the arms. The duo hit the streets of campus to sell the sunglasses, and after just one afternoon, all 2,000 pairs were gone, and an observation became a business.
Sterling and Erin decided to setup shop in Philadelphia, working out of their apartment. With business going well, the two eventually moved into their first office space and hired their first employees. Five years after that fateful fall college game, Pop! Promos is now at its second office space with 25 employees, and a product line that goes well beyond just sunglasses.
Pop! Promos' rapid growth has earned it the title of the fastest growing company in Philadelphia. Success has been due in no small part to Pop! doing things differently; Pantone matching all products, making everything from scratch, and a dedicated team of Pop! stars to assist with every client’s needs.
The coming years are sure to bring more growth, more products, and more great service!
