Default Fireworks Stand Info

Anybody Own one? There must be some profits. My Son and his Buddy (18yo) are thinking of making some extra cash. Researching for New Year and later. Permits? Any info appreciated.

Thanks

Yes very profitable. Get with local fire Marshall. Lots of rules and regulations.

Call Rene Nuss with TNT Fireworks in Lubbock Tx 806-745-2457. They are the premier Fireworks Company in Texas, TNT Fireworks.

Stay away from a local Fire Marshall. Rene and TNT know all the rules and regulations and can take care of you, a fire marshall may know the rules but cannot help you get your permits and such that are needed.


Most county fire marshalls do not like fireworks so why contact them.

I know this business, TNT is the largest Class C fireworks business in the US and knows the business. Call Rene, she will take care of you!

Knew a guy that had 2 stands close to Waco. He made enough to piddle around the rest of the year fishing and hunting. He started putting Christmas lights up and made a very comfortable living working About 2 months a year.

Just remember, fireworks are just like farming. no rain/drought no crops and no fireworks sales.

This deal of closing businesses due to Covid 19 or whatever happened during the drought of 2011. Even though Fireworks are a legitimate business, they shut the entire state down to the SALE of Fireworks due to the drought.To me, another state/government overreach.

An do not give me this was due to safety reasons. Was the shutdown of legitimate businesses in the country and TX due to safety reasons for Covid 19 or something else? Some say yes others say NO and most have the facts to back up each of their arguments.

I personally think letting a State of higher Government official having the power to shut down commerce no matter why is dangerous in the wrong hands! More or less like the govenrment saying that we have to buy something or get fined!
