Brothers, David and John, started selling fireworks out of a small 6’ x 10’ stand in Pittsburg, Kansas.
After a successful season, it was clear they had found their passion. As the business flourished, family members became more involved and staff expanded beyond the family.
The Collar family took many trips to China and worked to build relationships with a variety of firework factories and distributors. They went to demo after demo, searching for the best product in the industry and 23 years ago formed a partnership to become the exclusive distributor–and now largest retailer–of Black Cat(R) Fireworks, the oldest and most recognizable firework brand in America.
