NORTHWEST: WHOLESALE DIVISION
As of December 27th, 2019 Foertmeyer & Sons Greenhouse purchased the greenhouse facilities and property of Schmidt Bros., Inc., and will be assuming operations at their facility on January 2nd, 2020.
Their experience and growing excellence is something that we are thrilled to be partnering with. Bringing knowledge of both horticulture and marketing, we will collaborate to bring the best possible products and programs to the fundraising and wholesale markets! We are excited to continue with their staff and customer base, as well as implementing and developing our fundraising model further into Northern Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, and Pennsylvania.
As we continue to grow and add to our journey, we are so blessed to be in the position that we are. Without the support and loyalty of our customers, we would not be able to grow our brand into the markets that are looking for our fundraising alternative. We want to personally thank everyone involved in helping us reach our mission that we set over 30 years ago! We cannot wait to bring our top-quality plants and service to these surrounding communities; all the while helping them raise the necessary funds for their organizational goals.
