The Khans, husband and wife, they both worked at a large party rental company for many years, its where they met and later married. After many years working together they realized how great a team they were and they wanted to invest in their own business. Always talking to each other about how they would do things different to improve customer satisfaction and productivity if they had a party rental business, they decided to stop talking take a risk and invest in themselves. After Kathy (The Linen Lady), a product of Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, majored in Production Techniques and Textile Design and Manufacturing and later worked in the Fashion Industry for many years developed and created 10 colors to the Solid Tablecloth line. SAGE/CELADON, CANTALOUPE/MELON, EGGPLANT/AUBERGINE, MOCHA/CAPPUCCINO, ANTIQUE GOLD/MUSTARD, SALMON/CORAL, FRENCH BLUE/SLATE, MANGO, CHARTREUSE, and finally her only not-so-good creation AQUA. What is special about this you may ask is that all the other party rental companies nationwide to this day copy and use these colors as part of their everyday line of colors. Table linens had been considered a simple selling tool and there was no real profit to be made. Kathy proved this to be wrong and uses this tool for New York Party Rentals success and it is as important as is glassware and tables products. So, with their talent, experience and life savings, they did just that and started a small linen rental company in the basement of their home in Queens, New York.
Customers that had confidence in their abilities, suppliers and a few hard working, experienced party rentals workers all believed in the Khans and wanted them to succeed. Outcasts to the party rental industry because of false accusations from their previous employer, and being different from the ordinary industry owners, they persevered. Clients were ecstatic over their customer service, the quality of inventory and innovative style, they demanded more of them. They insisted they service them with glassware and china, tables and chairs to become a fully serviced operation to do house parties and other small venues. Mr. Khan who initially encouraged Kathy to take the risk to start their own company, moved them to the next level. Khan, as he is fondly known by is always taking risks. He risked his life to come to America by any means necessary. His goal was to become an American citizen for the freedom to use to his God given talents as an entrepreneur and businessman. Arriving in America with nothing but the cloths on his back he worked at a couple of low paying entry level jobs until he saved enough to start several small enterprises where he had the ability to earn and save money until he could establish a "real" business. It was working at one of his businesses where he met Kathy.
Twenty years later the Khans own and operate out of a 65,000 square foot warehouse in Irvington, New Jersey servicing New York City and the Tri State area. With the innovations of the internet we have had the opportunity to reach hundreds of new customers. We go out of the way to maintain that close comfortable relationship with new customers as well as maintain that same customer satisfaction that we served and still serve to some of the same clients for all these years. Clients who turned this little linen rental company into a premiere fully equipped party rental company.
