Encouraged by the fur trade, Edmonton, Alberta was put on the map in 1882 with the settlement of about 5,000 people. Since then, Edmonton has expanded its repertoire with a fantastic hockey team, and one of the biggest malls in the world, among many other attractions. And now, Jeff Garniss, our latest Hickory Dickory Decks franchisee, can be found building his business in the town he calls home.
Alberta’s capital city has a population of just about one million people and is home to the Edmonton Oilers, where Wayne Gretzky (The Great One) began his prolific hockey career. While Gretzky called Edmonton home for many years, so does Garniss.
Born and raised, Garniss comes to Hickory Dickory Decks from a management background. He is a professional engineer, but when he recently got laid off, he turned to his interest in woodworking to steer his career path. This ambition put Garniss at our doorstep, and in April, he took the plunge into business ownership as a Hickory Dickory Decks franchisee.
Garniss lives where he works with his wife Jenelle and two daughters, 9 and 11. He will be servicing Northwest Edmonton, Red Deer and Spruce Grove.
While many of us have seen a pivot in our careers over the course of the pandemic, Garniss looks forward to taking advantage of his pivot to help fulfill outdoor space dreams with a new custom-built deck. He looks forward to both the design and build aspects of the business and cannot wait to add to his list of happy customers.
Need to upgrade that outdoor space but not sure where to start? Jeff Garniss, along with his team at Hickory Dickory Decks, will work with you in designing the outdoor living space you have always dreamed of.
