Kia Parsai is the founder & CEO of Shanghai Love Brewing Company. After only one year, Shanghai Love has become one of the leading craft beer brands in China, and Kia is helping shape the quickly expanding craft beer market.
Kia has been in the F&B industry since his years operating his family business in his hometown of Santa Barbara, where he held the largest retail accounts in the state for all major beer brands. After his Master from the University of Oxford, Kia moved to Brazil to pursue his dream of developing a craft beer brand abroad.
He moved to Shanghai in 2012 in order to explore expansion for the Brazilian retail operation, but after further research he decided to follow his true passion of setting up his own brand. Kai's first project was a hit, co-founding the number 1 rated international restaurant in Wuhan (Noi). After parting ways with his previous partners and with limited experience in small scale beer production, he found his next passion project, Shanghai Love. Now, after taking strict control of every process in his business from brewing to branding and everything in between, Kia is steaming ahead at full speed and aims to take his brand across China and beyond.
Kia于2012年移居上海，初衷是为了探索他在巴西零售业务的扩张，但进一步研究后他决定追随自己内心真正的激情所在 - 建立自己的品牌。他随即做的第一个项目便名声大噪 - 在武汉联合创办了排名第一的国际餐厅Noi。在与之前的合作伙伴分道扬镳后，尽管在小型啤酒生产方面的经验有限，他还是创建了如今这个品牌 - 申爱。现在，通过对从酝酿到品牌，以及对过程中所有业务的严格控制，Kia正全速前进，为打造全中国甚至国际知名的品牌奋斗。
