Meet Eoin Foley & Garrett Fedorkiw
Despite being one of northern BC’s biggest cities, Prince George manages to maintain a small-town, close-knit atmosphere. Nancy O’s co-owner Eoin Foley has strong theories about why this is true. “People are friendlier and more willing to help one another here,” he says. He also notes that small business owners in Prince George are eager to collaborate together to make their city a better place. Eoin and business partner and lifelong friend Garrett Fedorkiw add that the quality of life available to residents is another reason Prince George is such a great place to live. It offers a wide variety of services and amenities, quick access to a vast expanse of outdoor and recreational activities and an affordable cost of living.
Eoin and Garrett have known each other forever, so forging a business partnership was an easy transition. They started Nancy O’s together because they believed that Prince George needed a high-quality nightlife and entertainment venue. “We saw holes in the market and we knew we could fill them,” says Eoin. Their hunch was validated with an overwhelming response and strong support from the community and their patrons, and with several awards, they received in the years after opening. Being able to bring Prince George an experience that did not exist before is something that Garrett and Eoin are proud of.
Eoin and Garrett both agree that business ownership has many challenges, but greater rewards because of it. They enjoy the variety of work that comes with their business, and Eoin adds that no two days are ever exactly the same. It keeps work interesting and exciting and inspires Garrett and Eoin to keep bringing fresh new ideas to better serve their patrons and provide them with a fabulous experience.
