Citation for BC Aboriginal Business Awards Achiever

Business of the Year - one to two person enterprise

Jags Beanstalk
Haida Gwaii


Sharp entrepreneurial intuition, consistent hard work and unrestrained creativity define the business success of Jags Beanstalk. A well-known coffee house and community gathering spot in Haida Gwaii, the entrepreneurial passions of its owners have led to product diversification and an ambitious plan to add hostel accommodation to their site. Smart financial decisions and effective cost management have resulted in this small business weathering downturns and prospering in good times. Each and every day, proprietors, “Jags” and Susan Brown provide their customers with extraordinary hospitality and are rewarded with customer loyalty.
