Canada's Next Top Mompreneur?!

Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada (PressExposure) August 31, 2007 -- Two Blonds & a Brunette Gift Co. (2B&B) has been nominated to win The SavvyMom Mompreneur of the Year Award, a readers’ choice contest designed to find Canada’s top Mompreneur. The winner will be announced in the fall, and will be rewarded with an $18,000 prize package of cash, business services and office equipment that was designed to help take the winning business to the next level.

Who are the gals at 2B&B?

Two Blonds & a Brunette Gift Co. first brought sophistication, spunk and style to the gift-giving world in 2002, as a single location in Winnipeg, Manitoba. After receiving expansion requests, the ‘blondies’ incorporated and franchised in 2006. Just one short year later, there are 9 2B&B locations across North America.

Our franchisees consist primarily of yummy mummy career women – and one delicious daddy! – wishing to better balance career and parenthood and flex their entrepreneurial muscles (and great taste) in a business to call their own. The 2B&B work motto - start small in your home, be with your children, and grow from there – supports this endeavour. Their unique and funky gifts are another matter, catering to both celebrities & civilians alike!

Mompreneur struggles?

Picture this…cuddly, adorable, screeching three week old babe. Relaxed, blissful mom? Think again. Try self-employed, no mat leave, business conference call. What’s a momprenuer to do? Pick up phone, hike up shirt...If only they knew. In four words: boobies in the boardroom. What does it really mean? Juggling it all. It’s a struggle, but wouldn’t trade it for the world.

What will we do with the award money?

We are proud to be debt-free. We have grown our company using earned capital, investing everything back to ensure adequate growth. That being said, extra capital would go a long way to marketing our brand across North America in both the gift and franchise sectors. A home-based company such as ours would give many U.S. mothers the ability to maintain a career presence while staying home with their children, rather than returning to work a mere 6-12 weeks after giving birth.

Please help us secure this coveted award!

Throughout the contest period, will be hosting a ‘Mompreneurs Gallery,’ featuring Two Blonds & a Brunette Gift Co., among other fabulous ladies!
