Janine Favreau recognized with 2020 Legacy Award
Janine Favreau, owner of Nutters Everyday Naturals, opened the Nutters Prince Albert franchise in 1984 during a blinding October blizzard. Her store was one of the first wave of Nutters franchisees. Favreau is the company’s longest-serving franchisee, holding a place in the Nutters history books.
Like many in her industry, Janine didn’t begin her career with a goal of becoming a natural health retailer. However, her early choices helped lay a foundation for her future as a store owner.
Prince Albert born and raised, she obtained a teaching certificate from the University of Saskatchewan, and then entered the financial world, accepting a position with the Royal Bank of Canada.
Janine's husband Ron inspired her to become a natural health retailer. Since then, Janine has become the trusted face of the industry in Prince Albert. Advertorials in local newspapers and new media have regularly informed residents about her products.
Several members of Janine's staff have been with her for almost 20 years. Customer focused, Janine tells every new staff member, ‘We are a destination…people come here for a reason. So we serve them to the best of our ability.
Dedication to the residents of Prince Albert & Area has nurtured a loyal customer base who appreciate the beneficial knowledge and product service provided at Nutter's Prince Albert.
Janine recently undertook an extensive expansion of her store with widened aisles and increased product offerings, resulting in an even better customer experience.
In 2014, Janine was honored as the inaugural recipient of the Samuel McLeod Business Award for Prince Albert’s Female Business Leader of the Year.
