GeNell’s Flowers was founded in 1949 by GeNell Horner. In 1982, Mark Casto purchased the business from Ms. Horner. Shortly thereafter, Kim Hampshire joined the business. As Mark’s focus shifted more to his landscaping business, Kim’s focus remained on the flower shop. As owner, she continued to lead and manage the shop for nearly 40 years until she retired in 2021. You will see her often at the shop as she still enjoys working there part-time.

Mark and Kim’s daughter, Casey (Casto) Virgallito began working at the shop in 2014. Growing up in and around the flower shop instilled a passion for floral design and helping customers from a young age. After completing her education, she returned to the family business to pour her education and experience into the shop and became owner in 2021, taking the reins when Kim retired.

Mindi (Eernisse) Hixson, cousin to Casey, tells the story of how her Aunt Kim would encourage her to choose a flower from the walk-in cooler when she visited a shop as a little girl, and how these visits blossomed into a love for flowers. Mindi completed her education and worked in finance and human resources while living in various states, working intermittently at flower shops (including GeNell’s) to stay connected with her passion. In 2024, Mindi and Casey became equal partners in GeNell’s Flowers.

In 2024, GeNell’s Flowers celebrates its 75th year in business. Casey and Mindi and their talented staff are excited to carry on the amazing legacy of GeNell’s Flowers. Thrilled to continue providing beautiful, inspired designs and exceptional customer service, recognizing, and fulfilling the needs of customers and families of every generation.
