With two of his siblings, Co-Founder of Koyal Wholesale—the world’s largest wholesaler of wedding and event supplies, Shreyans Parekh shares his insight into not only what makes a successful online wholesaler, but how to make it work within the family too. A Wharton Business School grad, Parekh’s passion for doing business online brought him back to the family business after completing his MBA.
Like many Main Street business owners, managing the business and how that impacts the family is a challenge and Koyal Wholesale is no different. Parekh shares how he and his siblings have made their business a success as they serve customers in more than 80 different countries around the world and what they do to make sure they all share “family” time each week.
Working with family can be very rewarding—and very challenging. Shreyans Parekh and his siblings make it look very easy.
