Crown Trophy Franchise

Trophy and awards retailer.

What started out as a part-time job in college has turned into a franchise with more than 148 stores nationwide. A physical education major in college, Chuck Weisenfeld took a job at a local sporting goods store to make extra money. Working in the store's trophy department, Weisenfeld saw how profitable trophies could be.

After earning his degree and teaching in a high school for a few years, Weisenfeld finally quit teaching and opened his first Crown Trophy in Brooklyn in 1978. A few years later, he began offering franchises to his friends. Today the company creates and sells trophies and awards for various organizations and events.

The estimated total investment necessary to begin operation of a Crown
Trophy franchised business ranges from $168,150 to $199,200. This 
includes initial fees ranging from $118,000 to $128,000 that must be
paid to the franchisor or affiliate. If a franchisee incorporates the
optional “Signs by Crown” business into its Crown Trophy business, the
estimated total investment ranges from $186,150 to $227,700.
