Larry Kozin, Founder & CEO, MainStreetChamber, A DotCom Magazine Exclusive Interview
About Larry Kozin and MainStreetChamber:
Larry Kozin, has been creating innovative new marketing methods since leaving ArtVan Furniture in 1979 and opening up partner owned stores~up and down the west coast with his mentor, Henry Kraus of Electropedic.
As the Founder of Advanced Licensing, Larry joined forces with John Bellave of 99cent store fame, and together they opened over 300 independently-owned locations called iDealFurniture, and recruited an Army of over 5000 home based furniture brokers and had a front-row seat to the nightmare of logistics and technology that seemed to elude small and micro furniture entrepreneurs.
Advanced Licensing is dedicated to helping privately held companies expand nationally with a focus on building local economies and creating post-pandemic opportunities for the masses to become successful entrepreneurs on a shoestring
