These HBCU Grads Are Behind The First Black-Owned Alcohol Delivery Service

Cheers!

Thanks to these two Historically Black College and University (HBCU) grads, you could soon have your cocktail ingredients delivered to your front door, reports Blackbusiness.com.

Navarr Grevious and Mikáel Pyles met on campus while attending Clark Atlanta University back in the early 2010s and not only did they become good friends and fraternity brothers, but now they’re business partners and have created the perfect digital platform for the alcohol industry.

QuikLiq — operating out of Miami, FL — was designed to make ordering alcohol both easy and convenient and is well on its way to becoming a leading digital platform for wine, beer, and spirit delivery.

“QuikLiq is a tech-forward digital marketplace that provides our customers with access to the best selection of wine, beer, and spirits, right from the comfort of their homes,” according to the company’s website. “By partnering with the premier alcohol retailers along Miami Beach and throughout the US, we have set out to enhance the way our customers and retail partners interact through digital engagement. With just a click, we are bringing the essence of Miami Beach and all the great vibes that come with it, right to your home. ”

The brand’s CEO, Navarr Grevious has experience in finance and accounting having spent several years working as an external auditor for Deloitte, one of the largest “Big 4” accounting firms in the world. He also holds a master’s degree in accounting from Clark Atlanta University where some of his years were spent studying abroad in China.

QuikLiq’s President and Chief Strategy Officer Mikáel Pyles holds a bachelor of arts degree in business administration with a concentration in supply chain management. Upon relocation to New York City to become a luxury real estate broker for a boutique Manhattan firm, he resided in Minneapolis, MN where he was responsible for managing a $400 million portfolio.

Much like his business partner, Pyles holds many awards in the professional space for his role as an Assistant Buyer at Target Corporation’s corporate headquarters.
