We are excited to announce that we have sold Chapel Hill Floral. As of Monday, October 29, 2018 the new Owners will be Doug and Rachel Grass.
Barbara and I are expecting very little change, if any, in the way that the business will be conducted. Barbara will continue working, steering the business towards continued success and growth! She will be working hand in hand with the new owners, teaching them the everyday operation of the business. Mark, with over 35 years of experience in the Floral Industry, will also continue working as a designer creating those wonderful and creative floral designs that he is known for. Christine, our newest employee, will continue in customer service as well as design. Larry and Brett, our Delivery Drivers, will still be making folks smile as the delivery our beautiful flower arrangements. I am the one who will not be working at the business on a regular basis. I will however continue to help the new owners as needed, especially during the very busy holidays.
As new owners, Doug, is a very artistic person who shows great skill in Floral Design. He comes with a construction background in metal fabrication and installation as well as retail experience through a family owned business. Rachel, who we have had business ties with for many years, will assume an accounting roll in the business as well as marketing and customer service.
Doug and Rachel are young, full of wonderful enthusiasm and energy. They are looking forward to the challenge of being small business owners! They are very confident in their ability to maintain and build on the future of Chapel Hill Floral.
Barbara and I are very proud of our accomplishments over the past 18 years. We have worked hard to be a be part of the community and have given back to that community when and where we could. We have always surrounded ourselves with positive and like minded people within the business community as well as in the Floral Industry. Those relationships, along with our dedicated employees have allowed us to grow our business into what it is today. Lastly, we have built a strong and loyal customer base with our dedication to exceptional customer service and quality product at a fair price. We will be forever grateful to all those wonderful customers!
We hope our customers will embrace the new owners and give them a chance to continue what we started and have enjoyed. Thank you so much for all of your support and the business that you have given us over the years.
Sincerely, Rick and Barbara Frye
