Brown’s Trophies A Brandon Icon

By Sharon Still

The keys to longevity in business are competitive pricing, great customer service and giving back to the community, according to Brown’s Trophies’ Brandon store manager, Teresa Brown Dibble.

Since 1958, Brown’s Trophies Inc., a family-owned and operated business now in its third generation, has proven itself as an industry leader specializing in corporate awards. Trophies, plaques, ribbons, silver, gift items and desk sets are also among the store’s inventory, along with name badges, signage, custom apparel and awards in all materials, shapes and sizes.

On Thursday, September 26, Brown’s Trophies is hosting an Open House for members of the Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce, 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Guests are encouraged to stop by to check out Brown’s Trophies showroom, new and creative ideas for promotional products and beautifully sculpted awards while networking and enjoying a light bite to eat.

“We are very appreciative of our clients and we are very proud of who we are in the community,” said Dibble.

The Brandon Foundation is one of many local organizations who use the services of Brown’s Trophies. “We use Brown’s Trophies for plaques for our angel program and have also purchased promotional products from them for our wine event,” said the Brandon Foundation’s executive assistant, Rose Smith.

“We have found Brown’s Trophies to be very consistent and professional while offering quality products,” she added. “Because we are a non-profit organization, they extend very fair pricing to us and we appreciate that.”

In addition to the Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce, Brown’s Trophies also is a member of the SouthShore and Brandon chambers of commerce.

Brown’s Trophies has four Tampa Bay-area locations and serves small and large businesses, sports teams, professional and civic organizations and many others. The Brandon store is at 140 S. Moon Ave. Store hours are Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. More information and a peak into the company’s large selection can be found at www.brownstrophies.com.
