Spencer McOscar and his co-workers get a bang out of their work.

He says it’s been that way ever since the business, Crazy Joe’s Fireworks in Warsaw,  started in 1989 in Monroe, Michigan.

“Crazy Joe’s operated out of a tent and temporary stores, from the month of May through July 10 of the year,” McOscar says.

The original owner was Joseph McOscar, when the company was operating in Michigan.

In 2007 Spencer McOscar, Joseph’s son, and Linda McOscar, Joseph’s wife, decided to start a more permanent business in Indiana.

“At this time, Joseph retired from the company,” McOscar says. “However, he did provide some input when needed.”

Crazy Joe's FireworksThe business is currently owned by Spencer McOscar. He offers quality products that meet customers’ specific needs. The staff is dedicated to offering many types of fireworks geared toward each customer’s interests. The staff goes out of its way to make sure customers get just what they are looking for.

Crazy Joe’s Fireworks has a wide selection of canister shells and artillery shells. Family assortment tracks are also available. Customers are encouraged to visit the air-conditioned store and browse.

Customers are also encouraged to take their time picking out just the right fireworks for their own personal family fireworks show. Discounts are available for military officers and first responders.

“I have over 30 years of experience within the firework industry,” McOscar says. “I offer all types of fireworks – fountains, repeater cakes, finale cakes, Roman candles and much more.”

McOscar notes that the company is open year-round.

“It does, however, close after January 1, and reopens approximately two weeks into May,” he says. “I offer appointments during the time in between.”

McOscar is a busy man.

“During the off-season I started a trucking company, and would drive a dump truck, which is how I discovered the property that houses Crazy Joe’s Fireworks in Warsaw, Indiana,” he says. “My route would take me through State Route 30.”

McOscar says he has a lot of great merchandise at Crazy Joe’s Fireworks.

“We offer all kind of brands,” McOscar says. “However, Black Cat is popular among our customers.”

Crazy Joe’s Fireworks sells strictly fireworks, with the occasional Crazy Joe’s T-shirt purchased.

McOscar says he has been very blessed with faithful customers who tell their family and friends about Crazy Joe’s Fireworks.

“We do have loyal and repeat customers,” McOscar says. “Its always nice to see familiar faces.”

“I love seeing loyal customers and meeting new people,” he says. “I also enjoy talking about the different kinds of fireworks available for consumers.”

McOscar loves his customers so much that he even held an annual customer appreciation day on June 12.

The event was McOscar’s way of thanking customers for their loyalty. He has a big roast, a fireworks display, some product demonstrations, door prizes, a cornhole tournament, a bounce house, raffles and much more.

McOscar also has a prize promotion, for which he gives Excalibur mortar shells away when supporters like and share his Facebook posts. He’s had other great prize promotions, and it’s all part of his way of giving back.

McOscar looks forward to the Fourth of July every year. It’s something he can share with his family and friends each summer.

“When the clock hits midnight and we close for the day, it’s great,” McOscar says. “The drive home is amazing, as I see the sky light up as families celebrate our independence.”

McOscar loves Warsaw, Indiana.

“I enjoy how welcoming Warsaw and the surrounding cities have been in accepting us into their communities,” he says. “I also like living near the various lakes in the area, as I love to fish.”

McOscar is incredibly grateful for his customers.

“I would like to thank all our customers for their support over the years,” he says. “Happy Fourth of July!”
