Need some cool new wall swag from LSU or Clemson? Ready for Super Bowl? Now you can buy it anywhere. Winning Streak Sports, makers of custom designed wool banners that fans love, announced an exclusive five-year partnership and representation agreement that will service nearly 95% of the entire U.S. college bookstore and campus retailers. This makes Winning Streak the top retailer in their category and one of the elite distributors in the $4.6 billion collegiate licensed retail space.
“It is with a great excitement and humility that we are looking forward to this agreement and could not be more pleased to welcome Joe Marrinan and his entire team at Jardine as well our new friends at Barnes and Noble, Follett Corporation and the many Independent College retailers to the Winning Streak portfolio of clients,” Winning Streak CEO Chris Lencheski said.
Winning Streak’s forte is high end premium flock wool banners and pennants.
“We pride ourselves in partnering with the “Best in Class” vendors for each of the product categories we represent, and Winning Streak certainly fits that title for the pennant and banner category of our industry as one of the most innovative and forward thinking companies in our industry today. The way they are incorporating social media and technology into their sales strategy is light years ahead of most of the vendors in our marketplace,” added Joe Marrinan, Chairman of Jardine Associates, Winning Streak’s partner in this expansion.
While Fanatics is the industry leader in clothes and other merch, Kansas based Winning Streak has found, and now exploited a collectible niche for the wall space. A segmented market becomes whole, and that’s the best way to grow a business.
