Become A Jake's Fireworks Retailer

In 2018, consumer fireworks purchases topped $949 million in revenue. Each retailer in the United States contributed to these sales, making profits through their endeavors. The fireworks industry is a fun and fulfilling opportunity for entrepreneurs to be a part of one of America's favorite traditions (while earning monetary rewards too!)


Fireworks have been an American tradition since the first Independence Day in 1776 when President John Adams declared that July 4 should be "solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other..."

These days, Americans not only celebrate July 4 with fireworks, but we also use these colorful pyrotechnics to commemorate all sorts of things! From ringing in the New Year to revealing the gender of a new baby, to weddings, ballgames, events and more. Fireworks are and will be, a part of life's celebrations for many years to come.

Without fireworks retailers, none of this would be possible! Retailers work diligently to set up the tent or store, unpack the product and sell the fireworks. It's the dedication of the retailers that keep families and individuals returning to their local tents, stands, or retail stores to purchase their favorite fireworks year after year.
