Tell us about your company:

We are a commercial Furniture, Flooring and Storage company serving the Central Ohio Area and Nationally as requested by our clients.

We offer interior design space planning, project management, furniture installation, and so much more!  King currently has 70 employees and we work in teams to support our customer’s needs.

Our core values are:
“We are a dedicated team, who respect each other, working with a  positive attitude to always to do the right thing by keeping our Customers First!”

What motivated your organization to get involved with NAWBO:

Women help women naturally and what better place to be than with our peers for support and comradery.   All women business owners should belong to NAWBO!  They just need to find their value in some way or another.  Roundtables are the key to the success of peer to peer support. I rejoined many years ago because of the $1M round tables and I believe we should not limit it to that amount.  Let’s take it to $20 Million and beyond. 

What does your company offer NAWBO members and why is this important to them?

We certainly offer all of our services to NAWBO members at any stage in their business growth.  We have offered our showroom, our conference rooms, and even our Studio downtown to any member for no fee. 

What is the one best practice you’ve learned from working with businesses in your company that our members should know?

The key to happy customers is happy employees that represent your company well.  We understand all of our employees have families and outside interests.  The best book I ever read as a business owner was “ Dream Manager” by Matthew Kelly.  It put the employee and employer relationship in perspective for me.  We like to say “don’t miss a ballgame!”  take off when you need to for kids or pets or a vacation.  The work will be here when you get back and believe me it comes back tenfold.  Life is too short.  Enjoy what you do and the environment around you can impact your happiness.  Our tagline is “Love where you Work”.
