Kane’s Furniture

I have personally worked with the folks at Knox Sports for more than 20 years. I consider myself a terrific contract negotiator, but with Knox Sports expertise, our sports marketing has transcended to another level. Last year, our sponsorships delivered almost 40,000 unique visitors into our Central Florida stores. Sports Marketing can deliver success, and we knew where to find it.

Land O’ Frost

In 2001 Land O’ Frost and Knox Sports came up with a youth sports Marketing initiative. In the first year of this program we were in 11 markets across the country; sponsored a little over 1,000 teams and Land O’ Frost was the 8th largest lunchmeat company in the country. Since then, we have grown our youth sports program to 29 markets; we now sponsor over 10,000 teams and Land O’ Frost is the 3rd largest lunchmeat company in the country. Knox Sports executes and manages this entire program for us. We could not imagine doing it without them!

Chicken Salad Chick

I truly don’t know how we would execute our sports partnerships without the team at Knox Sports. As a growing brand that wants a presence in athletics, it’s hard to manage internally and the Knox team keeps me on target and fulfilling our promises. Plus, Erin & Kirsten do a fantastic job making sure we’re experiencing the success we need, and if we’re not, they’ll help manage the partnership to adjust our activities to turn that around. The team is simply amazing!

Farm Bureau- Idaho

Before our relationship with Knox Sports began in 2013, our sports sponsorship contracts gave us a minimal, passive presence with no real way to measure effectiveness other than attendance and cost-per-thousand figures. Knox Sports, because of their partnerships with Idaho’s colleges and minor-league baseball teams, were able to renegotiate our sports sponsorship contracts to give us ways to measure the effectiveness of our contracts, generate leads for our agents, and provide benefits to our customers. We are grateful for the work Knox Sports does for us and confident that their proven approach to sports sponsorships will help our company attain profitable growth while benefitting our customers

Polk’s Meat

Knox Sports has literally knocked it out of the park with the negotiations with our minor league baseball and SEC athletic marketing contracts. We are receiving so much more in return for our dollars spent that we’ve ever been able to do on our own in the past. I would recommend them to anyone looking to get into this type of marketing.
