A Year in Review for The 203 - A look back at 2018

A Year in Review for The 203 - A look back at 2018

January 04, 2019

 What a fantastic year it has been! Looking back it’s easy for us to agree that 2018 was an extraordinary year for us. One that we will likely never forget. AND we simply couldn't have done it without all of you cheering us on 🎉! 

Here is our (quick) re-cap on all of the chaos that was 2018 --->

(Jan - March) We started off 2018 by landing our selves a spot on Connecticut Magazine’s 40 Under 40 list of “high-achievers under the age of 40”. A few months later, we were nominated for The American Small Business Championships and were later selected as finalists 🤗

(March - Dec) This year we attended 88 pop up events. EIGHTY-EIGHT! We added 11 new retail stores to our roster— giving us distribution in 27 local retail locations & making it easier for YOU to find our gear! We began selling to our first nationally recognized “big box retailer” and quickly learned how to manage inventory at this level (GULP) 🙃

This year we collaborated with some of our favorite East Coast brands such as Fair Harbor and Half Full Brewery to bring you everything from innovative products to legendary bar takeovers... as well as a few killer late-night sing-alongs at Sunset Grille (RIP Summer).

We worked hand in hand with SO many talented artists to bring you guys one of a kind, locally made products.

We sponsored some of our fave local events such as #AliveatFive and Hey Stamford Food Festival.

We added a few peeps to our "pop up events team" (we LUSM guys). We made it to( ALMOST) ALL of our pop up events rain or shine and tried our very best to do it all with a big smile :)

We were featured on a variety of well-respected media outlets such as; Connecticut Magazine, NBC Connecticut, Hey Stamford, @CTVisit, CTbites . 

But most importantly, we met SO MANY of you guys along the way!! 🍾🎉💓💃🔥🚀👊 THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU for allowing us to continue bringing you the best damn Connecticut themed products on the market.

Thank YOU for making this sleepless year VERY worth it. LET’S DO THIS THING 2019!
