Who is Mike?
Passion is everything in life
"The strongest motivation for running a business, are the customers
that inspire me daily" Migo
Mike "Migo" Tarikyan immigrated from Turkey in the early 80's with his brand new wife Isabelle, looking to venture and explore a new life and a dream.
After a few years, Mike was given the opportunity to work as an apprentice upholsterer for a local shop near his home in Cliffside Park, NJ.
From the moment he walked in as an apprentice, there was no doubt in his mind that he had finally found his "home".
He was a natural.
Mike's Custom Upholstery came to life in 1987.
With only 2 employees, Mike slowly began to build a steady and loyal clientele and, through word of mouth, his business started flourishing and prosper.
Mike came to understand that his work was not just about providing a service, but , mostly, working with an attitude that reflected the genuine interest in his clients and the love for his work.
A principle that was passed on from his father and that defined the future.
Today, after 23 years, Mike's legacy and dream lives though his wife Isabelle, who continues his passion, hard work and visions.
