Meet Chrishon Lampley of Love Cork Screw

Today we’d like to introduce you to Chrishon Lampley.

As seen on CNBC’s “The Job Interview,” Chrishon Lampley is a négociant, wine enthusiast and 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.

This rapid expansion is attributed to Lampley’s 14 years’ of experience in the industry, which has given her leverage to develop a keen awareness of what people enjoy and what the market is missing. As a holistic brand, three wine-scented candles were added to the portfolio in 2014. These candles are currently available at Target locations, including three bonus scented candles. In December 2018, Love Cork Screw introduced an online exclusive varietal of Rosé – We Go High.

Lampley leverages her platform to mentor young women and budding entrepreneurs who can benefit from her lessons and her success. She gives her time and resources greatly to nonprofit organizations through sponsorship and speaking engagements. Lampley has mentored youth through Urban Broadcast Media, Chicago Sky and Polished Pebbles to encourage Chicago’s youth. She is a member and supporter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.

LCS Entertainment, LLC is a licensed wholesaler and importer, a certified Minority Business Enterprise and a Women Business Enterprise.

Has it been a smooth road? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
The alcohol industry has several moving parts. One of my biggest struggles is being taken seriously in an industry that does not look like me. However, I keep pushing through and facing each struggle as it comes.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Love Cork Screw story. What are you most proud of? What sets you apart from others?
I am most proud of continuously knocking down doors and creating lanes for other entrepreneurs. What sets LCS Entertainment apart is the versatility of not only being a wine company but an experience, unlike other wine companies.

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
I laugh at luck because when it comes to a raffle or bingo, I normally win, but I believe in other areas I’ve had bad luck. But the bad luck moved me to work harder and say “Well, NEXT!”
