• INC 5000 Praise Lake Zurich-based Internet Retailer
    • LAKE ZURICH - With recent honors from two business magazines as proof, the father and son duo of Pat and Ron Starr have lived up to their last name for the past 27 years with their family-owned Lake Zurich business Koffler Sales.

      Ron, Koffler Sales' president, and Pat, the CEO, were told in August that they made Internet Retailer Magazine's Second500 Guide, which is a sister publication to its widely distributed Top 500 Guide, also referred to as the "Bible of the E-Commerce Industry."

      Similar to how the Top 500 Guide ranks e-retailers based on annual online revenues, the magazine's Second 500 Guide promotes the up-and-coming businesses that are unique to their individual markets. Retailers on the second list are ranked from 501 to 1,000.
