How We Began

 

Warren Greenhouses is a family owned and operated business in the downtown Kitchener area.  Purchased in 1958, by Paul Stigter Sr., the business is still at its original location on Strange Street.

 

At the young age of 16, Paul Jr. joined his father working in the greenhouse, to make a living to support the family.  With only a few small greenhouses, they started producing bedding plants, potted mums and poinsettias.

 

In the late 1950’s Paul Jr. was sent to meet with the produce buyer for Zehrs.  He had with him 12 potted mums.  Those 12 mums were then delivered to the  3 Zehrs stores in the city.  West Avenue, Belmont Avenue and Bridgeport Road.  Within a few hours, they  got a call to deliver 24 more to each store. So the growing business and relationship with Zehrs began.

 

 

Employee

Youngest son Winston started working after school, weekends and holidays with the family. We now supply numerous products to a growing number of Loblaws stores throughout southwestern Ontario.  We have since expanded to two locations.  The Kitchener location still remains with 80,000 sq. ft. of growing area and also the location of our retail store.  Our Ariss location was built for growing in the year2000 and is now over 150,000 sq. ft. under cover and has a 10 acre garden mum field.

 

Paul Jr. has “retired”, but still spends many hours in the greenhouses. The business is now owned by Winston and his wife Ellen.  Their children are working with them and eager to take over the reins.  Sheila and her husband Mike are at the Kitchener location, doing the growing and running the office.  Son Paul is the grower for the Ariss location. 

 

Hopefully our up and coming 4th generation will be able to continue enjoying servicing our loyal customers with quality product.
