Dallas, Texas - While he's not backing up Drew Brees on the football field in New Orleans, Chase Daniel is launching his first business, a Dallas-based company called 10Star Apparel.
Backed by the multi-million dollar manufacturing company, B&E Enterprises, Daniel has locked arms with more than two decades of experience in the industry to provide businesses a turn-key solution for any apparel or promotional needs.
"It's always been a dream of mine to own my own company that I can put as much work into off the field as I do each day in my football career," Daniel says. "I love having a business in Dallas where I grew up, and being able to come back here and nurture relationships with local businesses and large companies that have supported me my entire life."
Daniel's business isn't just a locally based apparel company. With more than 300,000 square feet of production space in Arlington, 10Star's warehouse has manufactured apparel for more than 30,000 employees across 17 countries around the world.
Partnering with Daniel is musician Nelly's business manager and longtime B&E executive, Mike Chaffin. Chaffin's 20 years of experience in the apparel industry is unparalleled and his time managing A-list celebrities gives him a unique vantage point in the game.
"It's rare to meet an athlete with a work ethic like Chase Daniel's," Chaffin says. "His drive and positive attitude is contagious to everyone in the company."
The 10Star factory has the ability to execute everything from screen printing, embroidery and custom promotional items, to housing inventory, shipping logistics, and the creation of online apparel stores.
"We can do everything in-house, from custom art design to shipping and storage," Daniel says. "This allows us to provide the best service and experience in the industry, hands down."
