About

Football is by far the number one spectator sport in America. A recent Harris poll states there are over 200 million football fans in the United States. These are millions of people who live in all 50 states and include 73% of men and 55% of women. Over 19 million people will attend NFL games each year. As football fans, what do we do while watching our favorite team play every Sunday?

The simple answer is: we eat and we drink. That makes the Touchdown Mug the perfect addition to any college football or NFL game day. Our goal is to become a staple of every football party.  Let's go deep, with the Touchdown Mug!

 The Touchdown Mug is made in AMERICA.

 And is made from 100% recycled plastic!

If we reach our funding goal, the money will be used for manufacturing molds and a short run inventory to fulfill pledges made by backers, as well as properly market testing our product. 

Risks and challenges

Taking an injection molded product from the prototype phase to large scale manufacturing can be difficult when dealing with delays in raw materials, proper plastic color mix, injection molding temperature and possible redesigns to insure efficient manufacturing.

Unlike most plastic products, the Touchdown Mug is made in the USA and not in China. This allows our team to properly supervise all steps in the manufacturing process and deal with problems as they arise.

Being a seasonal product, September to February the following year, creates the potential problem of left over inventory at the end of the football season.

We can manufacture quantities to match pending orders, because of a relatively short turn around time, this prevents left over inventory that has yet to be sold. Retail and gift items spike during the holiday season, we expect a second spike during the Super Bowl to use up any left over inventory.
