KENEX: What is your name and the name of your company?

BLIZZY HOME: Rob Rios-Gibson and my company is Blizzy Home.

KENEX: Who or what has been the greatest inspiration /influence for you and your company and why?

BLIZZY HOME: In December of 2015 my best friend (C.J. a.k.a Big Blizzy) who I call my brother was called home by GOD unexpectedly. This loss hit pretty hard because he had health issues that no one close to him knew about even himself. So I decided to start this brand in honor of him to keep his legacy alive as well as to promote and encourage living life to it’s fullest each and every day. If you knew him and you were close to him then you knew him by Big Blizzy, and I go by G-Home so that’s where the name BLIZZY HOME came from.

KENEX: How would you describe your product?

BLIZZY HOME: A lot of designs we have are your typical run of the mill custom T-Shirt designs, we do put our own spin on all of our designs so we can honestly say they are custom Tee’s. We also have a signature line of Albany N.Y. apparel that we design 100% ourselves. So I guess you can say that my hometown has definitely had some influence on me and my business.

KENEX: How long have you been doing this?

BLIZZY HOME: I went live with the website on December 4, 2018.

KENEX: What has been your greatest achievement so far?

BLIZZY HOME: I have reached a bunch of sales goals which I am tremendously humble and grateful for, but to me the greatest achievement was being able to see the vision of what I want and being able to go live with that vision and the brand. Keeping my brother’s legacy alive as well as being a black business owner are some of my greatest achievements. To me these things outweigh any type of capital achievement.

KENEX: What do you see for yourself in the future?

BLIZZY HOME: Right now I am learning and growing with my business, working on building and expanding my knowledge as well as the brand. So for the future I see myself becoming an expert and master in my role as owner here at BlizzyHome. I plan to immerse myself 100% into the brand and learn the in’s and out’s while looking for opportunities to grow and make my business more efficient.
