“Fern & Frond is a modern take on your traditional neighborhood flower shop. We serve nature loving, adventurous men and women to help them express themselves through thoughtful floral design. We offer flowers for all of life’s celebrations and moments, and we specialize in wedding florals. In addition to our floral offerings we have a selection of curated home decor and giftware. Fern & Frond was outgrowing my home studio. I knew that in order to sustain this growth I would need to expand into a retail space and have more storage for the flowers.
I was encouraged by Venture Kamloops to pursue additional funding in order to purchase a flower cooler as well as free up some working capital to grow the business. Community Futures was able to provide a small loan that I could use to purchase the cooler and some furnishings for the studio. The loan had a 6-month interest only grace period which helped me get the best start in this new venture. Besides the financial impact the loan had on providing me with a great footing, having the team from Community Futures support and encourage me to move forward in my business was an incredible advantage for me and I am so grateful.” Chelsea Hogan, Owner Fern & Frond.
Fern & Frond studio is open in Kamloops at 105 – 1428 Lorne Street in Kamloops.
