For Immediate Release:
From: Championship Billiards
Re: Silver Cup Chalk
Championship Billiards is proud to announce the acquisition of Silver Cup Chalk of Macon Ga. Silver Cup has long been the leading supplier of Colored Chalk to the Billiard Industry. Having matched Championship’s Color Palette years ago it was a logical partnership that was due to come.
Championship cloth is available in 32 colors and the need for matching chalk was obvious. It had been talked about for years but finally the time has come for Steve Hobby (81 years young) the longtime owner and operator of Silver Cup to retire.
“I’ve built this business and before that I worked at Gandy building his business, so I am very pleased to know that I am turning over the company to an industry stalwart in Championship Billiards, it is a perfect fit”. says Steve Hobby.
“The phone call was made by Steve and the conversation was easy and quick”, said Fred Cohen, president of Championship LLC. ” My response was simple, I said, Steve, we need you as much as you need us so let’s make this happen as soon as I return from a summer holiday that I had planned for months”. Once I returned, we made a trip to Macon and sat down for a meeting and once we got up, the deal was done.
We are very excited to bring James Rodgers onto our Championship staff as the General Manager of the Silver Cup plant. He brings years of experience to the business as he was the first employee of Silver Cup. Along with Silver Cup, Championship will also own the iconic National Chalk Brand.
Silver Cup will continue to be manufactured in Macon, GA under the same guidance and experience it has had since inception. New and improved packaging along with marketing materials will be available soon.
All future orders and service will be provided by Championship’s sales team.
