Our Story

Justin is growing his plant and floral boutique!Lepley & Co. has become as much of a community as it is a business. Operating primarily as a Plant and Floral Boutique, Lepley & Co. has a huge selection of tropical house plants, plant supplies, a full-service florist division, and boutique-style goods crafted by dozens of area makers, artists, and small businesses. Currently, Lepley & Co. has three brick-and-mortar locations in Stark & Summit Counties, and an ample online presence through our E-Commerce website, Social Media, and other online channels. What makes Lepley & Co. Special is our knowledge base on the plants and products that we sell, and our commitment to our customer's success. Whether you buy one of our plants or products directly, from one of our retail partners (Like Acme Fresh Stores), or even if you got something somewhere else and are struggling, we are here to help make sure you succeed in the plant hobby. Additional areas of expansion in the near future include outdoor plants, a coffee bar at our historic Train Depot Location, and The Venues at Lepley & Co. offering stunning spaces for events and weddings in our lush and beautiful shops/grounds.
Our Ambition

Lepley & Co. has experienced tremendous growth since it started out in the front yard of Justin Lepley's home in May of 2020. We have now grown to three locations, added a full-service florist shop, and share our shelves with dozens of local makers and creators. Though this growth has been exciting, and a tremendous ride - happening so quickly has led to a serious cash crunch. Lepley & Co. has so many more exciting projects, and growth plans for the near future, but our immediate need is to have an appropriate amount of capital on hand, to cover regular operations in an industry where cash flow does not always match the timeline of expenditures. Having this necessary capital on hand, will reduce a tremendous amount of day-to-day stress on the business and the management team, and allow us to focus on continuing to grow, and implementing our ideas in a sustainable way.
