Project Description

Success in today’s marketplace is often defined by a person’s ability to create something new while simultaneously paying homage to elements that are classic. While this is certainly no easy task, Chrishon Lampley’s journey has allowed her to embody this paradox into a beautiful tapestry that has become her flourishing brand.

 

Lampley is a negociant, wine enthusiast and founder of LCS Entertainment, LLC that features Love Cork Screw wines. Love Cork Screw is a lifestyle brand that launched six varietals in the fourth quarter of 2013. Since its inception, the LCS brand has acquired over 100 locations including, Walmart, World Market, Target, Jewel-Osco, Mariano’s, Binny’s, Whole Foods and other Chicago land and Ohio area stores, restaurants and bars. This rapid expansion is attributed to Lampley’s 17 years’ of experience in the industry, which has given her leverage to develop a keen awareness of what people enjoy and what the market is missing.

As a black woman owned business in this industry, Lampley struggles each day to be taken seriously. With only 60 black women wine makers in the world, her expertise, agility and business acumen are challenged consistently. 

 However, Lampley leverages her platform to mentor young women and budding entrepreneurs who can benefit from her lessons and her success. She gives her time and resources greatly to nonprofit organizations through sponsorship and speaking engagements. Lampley has mentored youth through Urban Broadcast Media, Chicago Sky and Polished Pebbles to encourage Chicago’s youth. She is a member and supporter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.

LCS Entertainment, LLC is a licensed wholesaler and importer, and a certified Minority Business Enterprise.

LCS seeks funding to improve technology infrastructure to further expand the virtual business platforms. The expansion will present more opportunities to partner with a handful of businesses and transition to a solid e-commerce strategy. I have successfully navigated LCS being a source of inspiration and a well-respected business located in the south side of Chicago. We can continue to fuel local economy and support charitable organizations through mentor sponsorships. We employ ambassadors, marketing experts and creatives to demonstrate to young budding entrepreneurs that they can follow their dreams. 

With sincere gratitude, LCS appreciates both its current and future supporters!

Cheers,

Chrishon and the team
