Vendor sales managers consistently rate Tifosi Sales as a top national producer. Retail accounts value Tifosi Sales for our technical knowledge, marketing expertise, sales training skills and management support services.
Since 1986, Tifosi Sales Inc. has built on a solid foundation of long-term relationships and focused support of our vendors and retail accounts.

Tifosi Sales is frequently called upon for advice: by retailers, for market trends, store layout and design, and management controls; by vendors, on product specifications, sales strategies and program design.
And, just in case you wondered… "Tifosi" roughly translates from the Italian, "fanatic". We hope you’ll agree there is a bit of the fanatic in our way of conducting business: ours is a life-long love of the sport and a passion for excellence.
