Mint Floral partners Jasmine Fuller and Bryce Williams were amazed that Whangarei Mayor Sheryl Mai would take the time to listen to their plans to open a florist business in the city.

They were even more amazed that she took the time on a busy Friday evening to cut the ribbon at their Robert St shop official opening in January 2015.

“We met with Sheryl at one of her ‘Mayor in the Chair’ sessions and she was just so happy to listen and then help us with our new business,” Jasmine says.  “And we thought it was great that she attended and cut the ribbon – she is so supportive.”
Bryce says the business is going well and Whangarei is a great city to trade in.  “And Sheryl has been very approachable – knowing we have a relationship with the Mayor has been special for us,” he said.
