About Brooklyn

Mint Green Group, Since 1974

Founded in 1974 by Ted Fletcher, The Mint Green Group was created out of a love for sport and penchant for sales. This love lead to a lifelong career as an entrepreneur, sports licensing pioneer and one of Canada’s foremost business leaders in the sporting goods industry.

Today, we are proud to represent leading brands across sport whose cultures and customers align with who we are. As we continue to build on our 45+ years in business, we look forward to adding new brands to our family and offering them the best-in-class sales, operations, brand building and Canadian marketplace expertise we’re known for.

The Mint Green Advantage

We Are Brand Stewards.

Brand DNA is at our core. Our expertise is in taking a brand’s global strategy and activating it cohesively and creatively in Canada, across every touchpoint.

We Make Deep Consumer Connections.

Everything we do starts and ends with the consumer – how and where they see the brand and how they engage with it. Our job is to understand the consumers’ needs deeply so we can earn their loyalty through meaningful content and an emotional connection.

Long-Term Relationships Across All Channels.

With over 45 years of proven success in wholesale, mono-brand retail and DTC, we have what it takes to get it right. We understand the retail landscape in Canada and how to differentiate across channels, drive sell-thru and leave the consumer with a lasting impression.

When We’re In, We’re All In.

We work with brands we believe in and go all-in on driving every aspect of their business in Canada. This includes regional product assortments, pricing and merchandising strategies, sales planning and execution, order fulfilment for B2B and DTC, brand activations and storytelling, and all aspects of customer experience.

Serving English & French Canada.

Our office space in Montreal and Toronto gives us proximity to all key buyers, industry partners, agency teams and media. Being headquartered in Quebec allows us to authentically establish credibility with the French Canadian customer base, who represent 23% of Canada’s purchasing power. Our fully bilingual team fluently operates in French and English, as required.

CREATIVITY

Creativity drives us. We make the mundane memorable and encourage new ideas and ways of thinking that make everyone’s business better.
