Lathered Cleaning Company Inc.
Lathered Cleaning Company opened its doors in Airdrie back in 2013. Lathered's owners, Kristin Verbeek and Meghan Peters, had only one goal in mind for their small business in the beginning, creating a more positive work-life balance for themselves and their families. However, they quickly discovered a passion for helping others get their time back too. They realized that by cleaning homes, they were not only creating a work-life balance for themselves, but for their clients as well! After some brainstorming, a lot of sweat, a little bit of blood and tears, and a whole lot of growing pains along the way...Lathered has evolved into a successful franchise run by incredible, like-minded entrepreneurs across Alberta. We now have over eighty employees, eight franchisees, twenty-five service locations, our own non-toxic product line, and various milestones and awards under our belts. We take pride in being as involved as possible in the Airdrie community, donating our time and elbow grease whenever we can and scheduling free cleans to families battling cancer through the organization 'Cleaning For A Reason' on a regular basis. We also recently hosted an online auction for a local Airdrie woman in need of a service dog (which we are so thrilled to say was a success and she now has some of her freedom back thanks to the local business community coming together and donating their products/services!). We are forever growing and improving and once Alberta is sufficiently Lathered, we have our sights set on the rest of Canada! Thank you for the opportunity to celebrate with the community that started it all! We love you and are forever grateful for you Airdrie!
Seven Saints Boutique
Looking to start a business venture together that incorporated their love for fashion, as well as their passion for making all women feel and look great, while also looking for something that could work around their busy families, childhood best friends Jen Friesen & Erin Hardy came up with the idea of a Mobile Fashion Boutique. Housed in a completely refurbished vintage motor home, Seven Saints Boutique was launched. The prairies had never seen anything quite like it, but this business concept was embraced, popping up at markets and festivals, a weekly spot at the Airdrie Farmers Market, as well as exclusive private home Shopping Socials, customers couldn’t get enough of this adorable shop on wheels. Their unique ability to pinpoint every customer’s individual style and dress them from head to toe, as well as the warm and friendly atmosphere, is what kept bringing customers back for more. In the winter when they weren't quite ready to pack it in for the season, the logical next step was an online boutique. Seeing how successful both these ventures were, a new idea started to materialize. Fast forward to 2018 and their next dream became a reality, Seven Saints Boutique found a permanent brick & mortar location in the Cooperstown Promenade. Seven Saints carries a variety of clothing labels, including many Canadian designers and manufacturers. They’ve also carefully sourced beautiful accessories from local artisans, and even carry a fabulous selection of shoes and handbags, all hand picked by Erin & Jen. The inventory is a great combination of local, imported and handmade, there’s something for everyone. Not many people can say they’ve been best friends since they were babies, but this unique bond is a big part of what makes this completely women owned and operated business so unique, and so successful. Erin & Jen have strived to create an environment where everyone that comes through the door will feel like they’re also a friend, accepted, and welcomed into the fold.
