History

BizChair.com was created in 2001 by its then fourteen-year-old founder Sean Belnick. With only a $500 investment and the advice of his stepfather Gary Glazer, a veteran of the office furniture business, Sean began running BizChair.com out of his bedroom.

In 2004, Belnick Inc. moved into its first commercial warehouse space, a 40,000 square foot facility in Kennesaw, Georgia. Within two years, BizChair's warehouse expanded to a 100,000 square foot space.[4]

In July 2007, BizChair.com relocated and expanded to a 327,000 square foot facility in Canton, Georgia. The award-winning facility[5] was designed by Atlanta architects Scogin Elam and Bray and once housed the Cherokee Operations branch of office chair manufacturer Herman Miller.[6]

For several years, BizChair.com held the first slot in the organic Google rankings for 'Office Chairs.'[7] Despite aggressive market competition, it remains prominently ranked.
