The two-year-old collectible toy store has enjoyed massive growth since it started operations in 2020. It has established its status as the best place for anyone to find collectible toys and other hard-to-find pop culture merchandise and reach new customers. Fanboys provided the platform for small business entrepreneurs to showcase while taking it a step further to handle all the sales process. Fanboys has enjoyed an incredible 20% growth month-over-month since its opening in May 2020.
Creating merchandise is one of the most lucrative things to do in today's world, and Fanboys is encouraging everyone with ideas to implement them. The platform has recently been authorized to sell Lego products in its stores, thereby expanding its product catalog which includes Funko, Hot Wheels, Dungeons & Dragons, and Pokemon. With the upcoming two stores, Fanboys is gradually spreading its tentacles to have a presence in multiple locations around the United States.
Beyond selling merchandise and a host of other items, Fanboys has established its local presence in Fort Worth. It has received the award in 2021 for the Best Toy Store in Fort Worth by Fort Worth Magazine and also the gold winner of Best Collectibles Store by Dallas Morning News. The company has recorded notable success just like its predecessor, Cowtown Events which was founded in 1993.
The journey towards building Fanboys began as far back as 1993 when Cowtown Events was at the center of all local events, from Craft Fairs to Karate Tournaments to Car Shows to MMA Fights and large scale conventions throughout Dallas/Fort Worth. The company handled the Combative Sports Expo in 2009, and by 2019, it had extended its services to Phoenix, AZ, Australia, Canada, and South Africa. Things took a turn when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, and the company had to halt all its scheduled 25 shows and morph into Fanboys.
Over the next few years, Fanboys plans to open more locations in more states. The ultimate goal is to be the go-to toy store all over the United States while making pop culture collectible items more easily accessible and available.
