Meet Dan Landry of The Grow Hub in Littleton
Today we’d like to introduce you to Dan Landry.
Dan, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I worked in the restaurant business for about 10 years while planning and saving to open a business of my own one day. I’d always assumed it would probably be in the food industry but kept my options and eyes open for other opportunities. Gardening and hydroponics had always been a hobby of mine, so I was like a kid in a candy store at the thought of owning a hydroponic/organic/indoor garden store. I see potential and growth in this industry and decided that this way the way to go. I’m glad I did
Has it been a smooth road?
First week opening, I broke my foot out running, had to have surgery and was on crutches for 3 months… Had my 1-year old son Lane at home and my wife was crippled by debilitating nausea being pregnant with our 2nd son Brody. So yes, the first 3 months were extremely trying times. Sales were not great for the first 6 months but we managed to get by. Now things are great and continue to get better.
We’d love to hear more about your business.
We are a Hydroponic and Organic garden supply store. But we are much more than that.
We are also a very hands on consultant for anyone that shops at my store.
