SWAK University Services is a division of Sealed With a Kiss LLC (SWAK), one of the oldest care package companies in the United States.SWAK shipped its first care package June 4, 1984, the same year the Apple Macintosh 128k computer was released. So needless to say we have been around awhile!
In 2001 SWAK completed development of its first e-commerce system (eswak.com) and began selling its care packages online. Over the next 5 years, SWAK continued to grow becoming the largest provider of summer camp care packages in the United States, shipping over 25,000 packages in 2006. During that same period, eswak.com became the #1 ranked Google website for camp care packages.
In May of 2007 the founding owners, Julie and Ed Winston, retired and sold their company to the Petty Family who moved the company to its current location in Merriam, Kansas.
SWAK University Services (SWAKU) was established in 2009 to apply SWAK's extensive care package experience to the college student market.
