Start It Up Episode 44: OFW Expands to Markets Beyond the U.S.


  When JJ Jerman and his wife Beverly moved to Chattanooga to start Office Furniture Warehouse, they had no idea of the adventure on which they were embarking.  Today, OFW has multiple divisions and has recently begun to test the market for used medical furnishings outside the United States.  Key to their continued success has always been the discipline to never expand into a new business area without already having a customer.

CEO and Founder JJ Jerman visits with Start It Up Host Monty Bruell to share his business philosophy and explain how listening to customers has directed OFW's growth trajectory.

Tara Viland is the Executive Producer of Start It Up, which airs Fridays at 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. on WUTC 88.1 FM.
