Meet Ken Thomas
Ken Thomas decided over 30 years ago to take control of his own future and become an independent business owner. Although the road hasn't always been easy, Ken says, he wouldn't trade small business ownership for any other job.
As an avid outdoors-man who especially enjoys fishing, hunting and camping. Ken says that 100 Mile House is the perfect place to live. However, even more than the closeness to nature and access to back country, what Ken loves the most about living in the community are the good, friendly people. Ken supports a number of locally-driven charities, initiatives and events.
Ken believes that one of the biggest challenges facing small town, independent businesses like his is overcoming the notion that small businesses don't have as much to offer as stores in "the big cities." Ken hopes that locals will simply stop in to see what local businesses have to offer before choosing to spend their dollars outside of the community, noting that when they do many are surprised and delighted at what they find right here at home.
