ChiBizHub Resource Provider Shares Advice for Local Entrepreneurs

Love Cork Screw Founder Discusses Why She Chose Chicago & How She’s Relied on Resources from ChiBizHub


ChiBizHub sat down with Chrishon Lampley, founder of LCS Entertainment, LLC that features Love Cork Screw wines. Love Cork Screw is a lifestyle brand that launched six varietals in the fourth quarter of 2013. Since its inception, the LCS brand has acquired over 50 locations including, Mariano’s, Whole Foods, Target, and other Chicago land area stores, restaurants and bars.

First can you briefly describe Love Cork Screw and your mission?

As seen on CNBC’s “The Job Interview”, LCS Entertainment, LLC is a wine and lifestyle brand dedicated to offering consumers wine, entertainment, and other products and services. LCS Entertainment, LLC provides consumers a line of Love Cork Screw wine varietals that offer the sophisticated and novice wine enthusiasts a range of choices for any palate. Each sleek wine bottle is colorful, whimsical and fun. LCS Entertainment, LLC is a certified MBE (Minority Business Enterprise) and a WBE (Women Business Enterprise).


Why did you sign up for ChiBizHub? Why is it important for entrepreneurs and small business owners to sign up for ChiBizHub?

I signed up because of the wealth of resources available at your fingertips. It’s rewarding to have a local organization understand the nuisances of entrepreneurship and provide helpful resources to encourage and equip you along the way. I think entrepreneurs should sign-up for this very reason.


What ChiBizHub resources are most valuable to you and your business?

I’ve found most helpful the business planning resources. You don’t know what you don’t know, so it’s been both a refresher and eye opener for me.


Do you have any advice for other local Chicagoland businesses looking to grow and expand?

Focus on one area until you perfect it. Until then there is no room for expansion. That’s like taking a magnifying glass and moving it all over the paper. If you leave it in one spot, it will catch on fire.


Why Chicago?

If you can make it in Chicago, you can make it anywhere. We have such a fun and honest culture here. Chicago has been a fan, supporter, and the best marketing a brand can ever have.
