crown history

In the summer of 1978, Chuck Weisenfeld opened the first Crown Trophy store on Avenue U in Brooklyn, NY. With a vision of the industries future and strong personal determination to succeed, Crown Trophy has grown into the largest retailer of award and recognition products in the country. For over 30 years the Crown Trophy name represents the highest level of customer service, quality products and a commitment to excellence.

Crown Trophy is a community minded business with a focus on working with sports leagues, youth groups, clubs, schools and organizations. The Crown concept is to reward everyone who participates and Crown's axiom became "Crown Trophy . . . Where Everyone Wins". Hard work, love for sports and the desire to give back to the community, helped make Chuck's dream an instant success. Staying focused on the community, Chuck initiated an expansion program to reach out to other neighborhoods.
Signs By Crown is the latest addition of our company expansion program.

Today Crown Trophy has 150 locations in over 40 states. Their expansion plans continue as they have a corporate office and warehouse with over 100,000 square feet. Located in Hawthorne, NY., Crown Trophy Headquarters operates a state-of-the-art warehouse and houses the entire franchise business including the franchise support team and the graphic artists department. Being the leader and most influential company in the expanding awards and recognition industry, Crown will continue to grow, develop high quality innovative products and provide it's customers with complete satisfaction.
