Concession Industry Leader Recognized for Entrepreneurial Excellence

Cincinnati, Ohio

J.C. Evans, Chairman of Gold Medal Products Co., will receive the 2010 Award for Entrepreneurial Excellence for the University of Cincinnati’s College of Business. Evans is being honored for his contributions to fostering entrepreneurship education and his amazing success in venture creation. The award will be presented May 13th.

Since 1931, Gold Medal has grown from a humble ink-only company into a worldwide leader for concession equipment and supplies. Working with large and small business owners, Evans and his brother the late David Bruce, have grown their own family business, and helped countless companies and families reach their dreams of independence and financial security.

Evans became chairman in 1991 after working with Gold Medal for more than 50 years—starting as an 11-year-old child unloading 100-lb. bags of popcorn in 1942. Gold Medal has more than 350 employees, 10 additional branches, and distributors in more than 130 countries.
