Several people know Chenier’s Greenhouse as the largest greenhouse in the U.P. But the history of how the family business started is something Nick Chenier holds dear.
“The history of Chenier’s Greenhouse is pretty special because my grandma and grandpa started it in 1976 with their six children,” said Nick Chenier, co-owner of Chenier’s Greenhouse.
They started with two greenhouses. And now, 44 years later, their son and grandson run the business.
“We have grown it to 45,000 sq. ft. of covered growing space and 16 large greenhouses,” said Nick.
And Nick’s grandma couldn’t be prouder.
“Two years ago, John bought it and Nick, and took it over. And look at what happened. It’s just beautiful,” said Sharon Chenier, former owner of Chenier’s Greenhouse.
