The Woman behind Children’s Orchard Olathe, KS

Children's Orchard Olathe

Being the Owner of Children’s Orchard Olathe is truly one of the greatest honors of my life.


To celebrate International Women’s Day & Women’s history month, we will be highlighting a few of the incredible female franchisees behind Children’s Orchard.

Being the Owner of Children’s Orchard Olathe is truly one of the greatest honors of my life! My parents and I bought the store in 2002 and all 3 of my children have worked here for their first jobs. Over the last twenty years we’ve doubled our square footage, developed strong friendships with many community partners, survived a global pandemic, and launched a website which has now filled over 2500 orders to 22 states. I am PROUD of my coworkers, and all of my colleagues that have blessed my life over these many years.

There are two things I adore about my job:
1.) I never dread going to work. Work is my safest and happiest space.
2.) The people with whom I’ve had the pleasure of calling colleagues is the most amazing list of the very best people. Our managers since 2018, Reva and Jordan, absolutely win the top spots in my heart.

Because of my amazing coworkers, we have been the number one Children’s Orchard franchisee since 2018. I can assure you; we do not take that honor lightly. We will continue to serve our community in the best way we know possible. We always welcome your feedback.

Our goal is that when you walk into our little store, you feel like you are home. We greet many of you by name. If we don’t know you, we want to. All our clients are special, and they all have stories to tell.

I am proud of the #COmmunity partners we have. And I am proud to share our shop with you, our amazing customers. We have traveled a journey with many of you from Mother to
Grandmother….and nothing could please us more.

Thank you kindly, from the very bottom of my heart for liking, sharing, and leaving us 5 star reviews. Cheers to 20 more years! Many questions can be answered at olatheks.childrensorchard.com or give us a call at 913-780-6600.

We would absolutely love to partner with you!
