When Sam retired his sons Howard and Barry took over the business. They worked together for 37 years until Barry retired.  Elisa and Howard’s wife Debbie came to work in 2008 to continue the legacy of Sam’s family business.

Elisa created the brand Reese and Rose in late 2014. The names are from her grandmothers: Theresa and Ruth Rose.  They are two strong women and the brand embodies both of their spirits. Our motto is Live the Life.
