One day Kathy and previous co-owner Paula were bottling some of Paula's wine at the White Rock store when they heard Gord, founder of Crescent Wines, talking about the possibilities of franchising. It sounded like fun and they decided to turn their hobby into a business and started the process of opening their own franchise. Crescent Wines Langley has been in business since 2004. Paula retired at the end of 2016 and Kathy continues to operate the store along with her husband John.
In the fall of 2018, Kathy and John also acquired the original Crescent Wines in White Rock. Kathy attributes their success to the unique methods and procedures Gord instilled over the years.
Allison, Kathy's daughter, joined Crescent wines in the fall of 2018 shortly after Kathy and John acquired the White Rock/South Surrey store. She currently manages the White Rock location doing both production and store operations. You'll enjoy her enthusiasm and love of wine as she gets to know you and the wines you love.
You will also see Brody, Allison's husband, helping part-time at both the Langley and White Rock stores doing production and taking care of your wine.
We are thrilled to welcome our new part-time employee Hayley! She will be learning how to help customers up front as well as the production in the back and looks forward to meeting everybody over the next few months! Hayley's husband has been making wine using our kits from home for years, so Hayley is thrilled to learn the process, and possibly compete with her husband :). You'll see Hayley mainly at the White Rock location but she will also be helping with production at the Langley location.
