Established in 1985, K Drive Greenhouse began as a wholesale bedding plant grower serving customers in the Detroit and Chicago areas.  The former owners would invite friends and neighbors in to purchase plants right from the production facility. As word of their quality and service grew, so did their retail business. In 1994 they constructed their first dedicated retail area on site. Today, K Drive Greenhouse has grown to an acre of retail sales area and still produces 95% of the product sold.

Sue and Kevin Burns never dreamed that a botched batch of laundry would turn their world upside down.  That’s exactly what happened when Kevin accidently washed one of Sue’s wool sweaters, rendering it useless.  Unless…Sue began thinking…she could someone reuse the beautiful wool and make something for her daughter.  And that was the beginning of Baabaazuzu, a little company that started from one useless article of clothing.
