Our founder Larry Kozin entered the furniture industry by chance at the age of 16. In 1973, he worked at a furniture store owned by his friend’s father unloading trucks and helping overflow customers on weekends. During his time there, Larry was trained by Art Van in professional furniture selling. In 1977, he dropped out of the University of Michigan to continue thriving in the success of the furniture industry.
Henry Kraus of Electropedic Beds mentored Larry before loaning him money for his first store ownership in 1982. Currently, Larry’s son is operating this family-owned business in San Juan Capistrano, California.
For more than 40 years, Larry could count on the mattresses and furniture to provide his bread and butter. Knowing how difficult it is to enter the furniture industry, he began a crusade to recruit brokers nationwide. This helps people learn just how profitable and successful the industry really is!
KozyVend is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kozy Furniture, which recently became a public company through a reverse merger with Walker Lane Exploration. It is also in the process of a name change to MainStreet Chamber Holdings.
Kozy Furniture was founded in 1982 by the CEO of MainStreet Chamber Holdings, Mr. Larry Kozin. Through his partnership with John Bellave and Jeffrey Rubinstein, he opened over 325 brick-and-mortar furniture stores with independent operators called iDealFurniture.
iDealFurniture leverages logistics and technology to empower operators with a low-to-no-overhead business model. We’re able to undercut big-box retailers on everything they offer because we don’t have the retail overhead that requires inflated prices.
