Beau-coup & Swoozie’s merger.
Swoozie’s has officially merged with Beau-coup , a California-based premium online retailer of party favors, supplies, decorations, and special occasion gifts.
The new combined company will maintain the brand names of Swoozie’s and Beau-coup, as well as retaining all staff. Thomas Cole, the CEO of Beau-coup since 2009, and Kelly Plank-Dworkin, co-founder and president of Swoozie’s since its launch in 1999, will serve as co-CEOs of the new combined company.
We really feel that Swoozie’s and Beau-coup are a natural fit for each other. Both companies have been successful in filling a retail niche for specialized products related to special occasions and entertaining.
The merger is projected to strengthen the reach and awareness of both brands. Beau-cup products will gain a wider audience and exposure with presence in Swoozie’s retail stores throughout the southeast and Denver while its online retail site benefits from the addition of Swoozie’s merchandise. At the same time, Swoozie’s will expand its online sales utilizing Beau-coup’s well-established e-commerce technology platform and capabilities.
