U Brands celebrates 5th anniversary at 2019 NSS
Birthday show specials, exciting in booth events and a birthday cake ceremony all marked U Brands celebration at the National Stationery Show.
U Brands was started in February 2014 by Mike Cerillo and Ben Hoch, and offers a wide range of products designed to provide unique and oon-trend fashion options in the home and office supplies category to consumers.
After 25 years and several different successful ventures together, Cerillo and Hoch decided to use their experience and expertise to launch a company dedicated to designing fashionable and innovative stationery products.
U Brands got its start in a small office space in San Juan Capistrano, California with only a handful of employees, all of whom play significant roles at U Brands to this day. In five years U Brands has quickly expanded into a 30 person team of designers, innovators and trendsetters who create products sold in the smallest of boutiques all the way up to major retailers such as Anthropologie, Target and Urban Outfitters.
“We knew we were on to something great with U Brands when almost every customer said ‘Yes.’ There have been many sleepless nights, but we look forward to working with our talented team and conquering new opportunities every day,” said Ben Hoch, president of U Brands.
