Business acumen runs in the Fazil family.
Zaman Fazil and his son Yaser have owned and managed Cozy Indoor Outdoor Furniture in Narre Warren for nine years.
It’s a family business journey that Yaser says has been “epic“.
“We love seeing happy customers who know they can come to our store and purchase furniture that will be stylish and comfortable as they entertain their friends and families,“ he said.
“Customers keep referring us to their family and friends so this has been an epic journey.“
Cozy Furniture used to be The Outdoor Furniture Specialists. Zaman and Yaser have rebranded and expanded the store’s range now stocking both indoor and outdoor furniture as well as giftware and accessories.
“We always have each other’s back and know each other’s strengths and weaknesses,“ said Yaser.
“We encourage one another to push our limits.“
An accountant, Zaman has always been self-employed.
“Not many shops have a large range of outdoor furniture and we believed we could bring value to customers as they can visit one shop and have a large range to choose from,“ Zaman explained.
Yaser has a sales and marketing degree and worked for Coles and a high end rug business before joining his father in the furniture business.
“At Cozy Furniture we pride ourselves on offering top quality products, exclusive designs and exeptional customer service as well as outstanding after sales service,“ said Yaser.
Zaman and Yaser say the furniture industry is challenging but that they both love a challenge.
“Along this journey we have seen so many trends and learnt how the furniture can portray someone’s personality.“
