LOCALS OF LACONIA
23 Veterans Square
How did you get into your current line of work?
Started working at greenhouse, from there opened our own nursery and then the opportunity to purchase Prescott's Florist came up and decided to move into floral design rather than outdoor design.
Why did you choose Laconia to start a business?
It was a well established business already in Laconia so we decided to stay. That is also why we kept the original name of the business too. Everyone always asks if we are "Prescotts" from Laconia, but no, we are from Sanbornton.
What's been your favorite memory since opening your business?
Creating a customer base and seeing them return holiday after holiday or each year for a special event in their family.
What are you most proud of?
That I have been able to pass down my business knowledge and passion for flowers to my daughter who is taking the reigns moving Prescott's Florist into the future.
What's your biggest challenge running your business today?
Keeping up with the trends in a small community.
How do you or your business support the community?
We take part in community events, donate where we can to help these events and stay as a stable business in our downtown community.
What's something that people don't know about your business?
Family run business with a Mother/Daughter team plus Jessica that has worked with us for over 20 years.
What would you like to see change in Laconia?
We would love to see Laconia downtown grow as a community together, which we think it is already on the right track. We all need to work together for the greater good. Take part, celebrate and talk to each other.
What does community mean to you?
A welcoming, warm and inviting place where people recognize each other by first name, help each other and grow for the greater good of the community.
