If you’ve ever tried getting a fresh pair of sneakers in recent years, you know how difficult it is to do. Highly-anticipated sneaker drops sell out in minutes, leaving countless people wishing they could have gotten a pair before getting beat out by someone else. Thankfully, there’s a bustling $2 billion sneaker resale market that is growing by the day. This allows people who weren’t able to get sneakers when they dropped to get them, albeit for a premium. AK Chefs has tapped into this market and lets budding entrepreneurs learn about sneaker drops immediately, or even before they happen.
Ari Sarafyan is the brains behind AK Chefs. This is a “cooking” community that exists on a Discord server Ari runs. There, he, along with his team, provide tutorials, drop alerts, and store checkout bots to help up-and-coming teen and 20-something entrepreneurs make it big in the reselling industry.
While sneakers were the foundation of AK Chefs, and still make up a significant portion of its focus, Ari has sought to broaden its horizons. That means AK Chefs offers more than just info on the latest upcoming sneaker drops. It is also involved with helping new entrepreneurs with funky reselling, stock investing, ticket reselling, random flips, and sports betting.
This multifaceted approach to reselling has resulted in AK Chefs containing thousands of members today. Ari has been tireless working up to 85 hours a week to make sure his business is the best of the best in the industry. He is committed to AK Chefs providing the best information to its customers, in order to always stay a step ahead of the competition.
Today, AK Chefs enjoys having a reputation for being the best in the industry. However, Ari doesn’t fool himself into believing this was all his doing. He firmly believes that he owes his enormous success to his customers. He has given them his full focus and dedication and was rewarded handsomely for it.
Still, managing an increasingly-growing business is not without its challenges. He is no longer able to go solo at it, which is why he has hired an experienced team of a few dozen teens and 20-somethings who are ambitious and determined to also be successful.
Ari himself is putting in 85-hour weeks, consistently, to make sure everything runs smoothly. Sure, he misses out on watching Sunday football and going to parties. However, he currently feels the tradeoffs are acceptable because of how successful he is and the impact he’s making. Doing things like payroll may not be that fun, but other things like leading the members of AK Chefs through challenging shoe releases is rewarding for him.
If you want to get in on the reselling business, then head over to the AK Chefs website, Twitter, and Instagram pages. There, you will find out how to be a part of the tremendous success Ari has enjoyed over the past three years.
