Brant Florist: Meet Ken, Tim & Doyle
Posted: Jun 9, 2016

In the spirit of Fathers’s Day this month we want to celebrate all the dads that make our downtown a special place to work and play.

We applaud and recognize those dads & daughters and dads & sons that work together in business everyday.

Ken, Tim & Doyle (Brant Florist)


  1. How long have you been working together?

Since we started in 1977. They were kids then, but they’d still come in and help out.

  1. Why did you decide to work together/open a business together/come on-board?

The boys were interested in the business, and in the industry.

  1. How do you balance work-life with your personal-relationship?

We get together personally, outside of work. We don’t talk about business outside of work. Sunday dinners are the most frequent get-together we have outside of the store.

  1. What’s the best thing about working with your sons?

They do a superb job of managing the business.

  1. What’s the best thing about working with your dad? 

Doyle: I love him. I’ve been here all my adult life, and I get to see my Dad every day.

  1. Do you have any Father’s Day plans (ie lunch/dinner out, golfing, special trip planned)?

Ken: We’re open 7 days a week, so it doesn’t mean that on Father’s Day I get to sit on a pedestal! I’m sure we’ll have a special dinner that night though.

  1. What was the best Father’s Day gift you ever received?

Books! I’m a reader. So I guarantee one of my presents this year will be a book.

  1. What was the worst?  

There have never been any bad ones, they’re all good!

  1. Is there anything special you want to say about your dad?

Doyle: He’s amazing.

  1. Is there anything special you want to say about your son/daughter?

I’m proud of them, as my sons. And I’m pleased to continue working into my retirement to help them.
