It started with a small 60-square-foot stand in the summer of ‘64 in Pittsburg, Kansas when John and David Collar thought selling fireworks would be more fun than mowing yards all summer long. After they each made nearly $250 that summer – they were hooked and never looked back.

Each summer they went back to the stand determined to give customers good products at a fair price and more importantly, build trust in a customer that would return each year.

By 1979, Winco Fireworks had grown enough that it was incorporated. They purchased their first “official” warehouse in Stanley, Kansas. That summer, the entire Collar clan pitched in to help fill orders, invoice customers, and make deliveries. That is a tradition that has carried lived on to this day. Winco Fireworks is a true family business and relies not only on family, but on employees that are like family to the Collars.
