Biskit Family Business, family business merch to open at Boca Raton resort
Posted On July 2, 2021
Boca, Florida (AP) A family business that makes home décor and other household items has a Florida beachfront store opening soon, and the company hopes to grow the business beyond Florida’s shores.
The Biskits, from Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, opened their second store Thursday in Boca.
It is part of a planned expansion in Florida, which is seeing a boom in the sale of household goods, like furniture and home déclothing.
They are working to open the second store in Palm Beach, a town of about 7,000, by early 2019, the company said.
The business is owned by John Biskitts, who is married to the president of the family business and has been married for 27 years.
His sister, Kim Biskitz, owns a home decor store in Florida and is the chief executive officer.
“It’s just a really great place to work, be part of something really good, and it’s just been really rewarding,” Kim Bisksitz said.
She said the company has been profitable for the past year.
“We are in a great position.
I think we have a good idea of where we want to go with it,” Kim said.
She added that the family is working on the expansion to a larger location in Florida.
She said the business, which was founded in the late 1970s, has grown to include more than 1,000 employees.
It sells in a wide variety of styles including furniture, appliances, electronics and furniture accessories, as well as furniture, jewelry, apparel and home decor.
“If you see a sign and you don’t see a family, you are missing the mark,” she said.
Biskit’s plans are to open three new locations in the next few years.
One in Miami, one in the U.S. Virgin Islands and another in Florida Beach.
The company plans to expand to about 10 new locations.
