1 Million Cups: Comic Sandwiches
March 8, 2023 from 8:30 am to 10:00 am
This week, we’ll hear from Comic Sandwiches! Grayson Burgess started Comic Sandwiches started in 2015 with their first product: frames to hold Comic books—hence the name. After that, the company expanded into Captain America Shields, managing its retail business mainly on Etsy. Once Comic Sandwiches refined the design of the shield, it started creating new products such as emblems, batarangs, other shield replicas, mallets, and batons.
Comic Sandwiches’ current business barriers are new product development and strategies for expanding into new markets.

About 1 Million Cups Cedar Rapids
The Kauffman Foundation developed 1 Million Cups (1MC) on the notion that entrepreneurs discover solutions and network over a million cups of coffee. We welcome early-stage businesses and established companies facing interesting challenges to present their companies. Typically, one or several representatives present before a panel of experts. They seek advice and then engage the audience in a question-and-answer session to encourage collaborative and honest conversations. We also feature expert speakers, founder fireside interviews, and explorations of business failures and the lessons learned!
The Cedar Rapids chapter is the sixth in the U.S., and events take place almost every Wednesday. Every event is free, and everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend!
Join us Wednesdays @ 8:30 a.m. at The Olympic Theater South Side (1202 3rd St SE #200, Cedar Rapids, IA 52401)! Each event features a presentation or conversation with a new founder, entrepreneur, business leader, subject matter expert, or creative. Find a list of upcoming events and presenters on our Calendar.
We update events as new information is available, so check the calendar often!
