Our family had a dream, we were just fans with a few dollars, an idea and passion up our sleeves. We created an F1™ merchandise "Mother Ship" Pop-Up Kiosk (inside a Convenience Store) inside the Metro/Subway Jean Drapeau leading up to the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. Served over 2,000,000 patrons since 1994. Now we’re here! Wow! What a journey I was only 19 years of age...
Former F1™ CEO Bernie Ecclestone visits FANABOX®. Love him or hate, we were not friends but did respect each other business acumen.
As an avid F1 fan, I admired Bernie Ecclestone's genius in shaping the sport, turning it into a global spectacle. His business prowess opened doors for my passion, allowing me to build a retail store in Montreal dedicated to the racing world I loved. Yet, Ecclestone's old-school mentality sometimes irked me, especially his reluctance to embrace social media's dynamic reach which Liberty Media capitalized on. Despite our differences, his vision paved the way for my three-decade-long venture, intertwining my love for Formula One™ with a thriving business. Ecclestone's legacy, a blend of respect and frustration, remains a driving force behind the success of my store and yes, I still do miss those V12 screeching sounds.
