Some future growth plans for Regali Luxuri include: physically expanding the location to include the 2nd level of our live/work unit; broadening our unique product line; hiring individuals to design for our proprietary merchandise; developing and implementing e-commerce to our existing website in year three; and establishing a mail order catalog.
We formed our company as an “8220” S” corporation. Bensai & Kaethe, together, have spent many years in research, personal finances, and time in developing our home-based enterprise into a successful retail location. Each of us contributed an equity investment to the retail location’s opening. Although we don’t have much experience in the retail business, Kaethe and I have five years of combined retail and accounting experience. Additionally, we both took entrepreneurial and management classes at the University SBDC (small businesses development center). Continuous education and our years of experience help us to manage daily operations and train future employees.
