Girard business begins export to Middle East

A local business is set to become and overseas exporter. Soft Touch Furniture in Girard will be shipping booths, tables and chairs to Saudi Arabia.

One of the companies they provide furniture to, Boardwalk Burgers and Fries, is opening a chain in the Middle East..

Production Manager Jessie Abeid said this is a major step forward for the local business that already ships from coast to coast here in the United States.

“I believe when you see America importing so many things it is nice to be a manufacturing facility that can export,” said Abeid. “It started here, and we are going to continue to grow here and we are not moving. It’s very exciting, just an amazing experience.”

The company could also be shipping to more countries in the near future.
