Our customers. Forming a relationship with our many wonderful customers has been a huge highlight for me.

We are extremely fortunate to have this community around us(bringing us cookies, wine, dinner vouchers, chocolates) and something I will always be in awe of. Family and friends have always been the core belief of Franki and it’s so wonderful that our customers feel they apart of our journey and apart of our family
