Happy Monday Modern Boca Moms! Welcome to our next installment of Mompreneur Monday on MBMom, highlighting Florida businesses and brands that were founded by female entrepreneurs and fellow Mommas.
We’re working to bring busi-moms across the state of Florida together to start a Mompreneur Movement! Why don’t you join us?
Today’s Mompreneurs are Brent Brewster & Brooke Bell, our first ever mother/daughter entrepreneurial team and founders of Pizazz Gift Boutique in Coconut Creek AND Delray Marketplace.
Congratulations on opening your SECOND Pizazz gift boutique! Tell us a little bit about your respective backgrounds and why being a MOM in business is important to you…
Brent – Being a mom has helped me with business as it has showed me the importance of family relationships. I have two daughters, so I know the value of female relationships whether it be mom and daughter, sisters, friends!
Our goal is for Pizazz to be a place for these women and these relationships to grow. Our atmosphere is laid-back and fun for women to come and enjoy themselves.
Brooke – I am a new mom and my daughter is two months old. Being able to have been in business with my mom and now having my own daughter is something so special for me! My mom has shown me what is means to be an honest business owner and employer.
She cares about each employee like family and values her relationship with each customer over anything else in her business. We do all aspects of the business together, and I only hope to pass that along to my daughter in the future.
How did Pizazz get started?
Brent – We had been to a similar store in the town that my mom (Brooke’s grandmother) lived in and always talked about wanting to do something similar in the town WE lived in.
How is your store unique vs. other “gifty” shops?
Brooke – We are a women’s store that is based on exceptional, over-the-top customer service. We are a place where women love to be and spend time. You can always run in to grab that perfect gift or just come by and spend an hour wandering around to get refreshed. Our merchandise is chosen with such care.
My mom and I choose each item that comes into the store personally. Our complimentary and fun gift wrap has become well known in Broward county. We love to hear women tell us about the different events they have attended and been so excited to see that gift from Pizazz waiting to be unwrapped!
Why should MBMom readers be your customers?
Pizazz Boutique Florida is the store “For The Everyday Diva.” We strive to make every customer feel special and appreciated. We have merchandise for every taste! We are a small business, a family business and we would love to meet you!
What exciting things are coming up for your store besides your recent opening at Delray Marketplace?
We have so many lines that we are so excited about! We currently carry Vera Bradley, Alex and Ani, Tyler Candles, and Bourbon and Bowties to name a few. We are so excited to add Brighton to our family this month!
What do you LOVE about living and working in South Florida?
Everything – we are both South Florida natives!
