Palmetto Twist was a dream of my daughter, Makala but she was still in school at the time and must go to college in order to have the store one day. I have been self-employed the majority of my life so starting the business was an easy decision for our family. We knew Greer was a great location to open our store because the city has grown so much. Our store has been open for a year now, we’ve met our goals and couldn’t be happier with our decision. We love getting to know our customers and building great relationships in the community.
Not knowing anything about embroidery or design we jumped right in and have enjoyed learning along the way. Makaka and I both like doing the design work for vinyl and sometimes have fun little fights about who is going to work it for the day. Having never shown an interest in sewing before I’m the only one who sews the pockets and any other work that needs to be done, finding it therapeutic to actually sit down to sew.
I enjoy working with my daughter and one day being able to pass the torch over to her and let her fulfill her dream of running the store. I wouldn’t not trade this experience for anything in the world and am blessed to have a daughter who appreciates all the hard work that goes into being self-employed and wants to follow in her mom’s footsteps.
Being the first one to buy a Palmetto Twist franchise was a little overwhelming at first but I did have years of retail experience working in management for a large retail store. It has been great to be part of a growing franchise and having the support needed to continue to grow my business.
