WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
We would like to think this all began with food but even before the food it was all about Chilliwack. Both Peggy & Cam were raised in Chilliwack, met and fell in love here.
Peggy got her education in Business and Hospitality while Cam, after working in forestry, decided to pursue his love for cooking and attended the Culinary Arts Program at Vancouver Career College. They might even tell you that cooking was Cam's first love, a love that Peggy has always supported.
Cam's apprenticeship with Delta Hotel's in Vancouver provided him the opportunity to turn his passion into a career where he worked in hotels and privately-owned restaurants in Vancouver and then Kelowna, as well as providing catering services for most of his career. Peggy’s career has involved event planning and management at some of Vancouver’s coolest attractions and UBC in Kelowna.
Peggy and Cam spent 17 years in Vancouver and Kelowna and while they didn’t envision returning to Chilliwack, when they had their daughter Ryann they knew they wanted her to grow up around family and close friends.
After moving 'home' in 2016, they began to realize their dream of opening their own place. Truly a family business, Cultivate Cafe opened its doors February 2018.
Rooting back into the community that they loved, Peggy & Cam quickly knew that creating a values-centred business was their goal. They work to create an exceptional experience for every guest that walks through the doors, orders catering or hosts a private event with them. Their commitments to you is:
Creating authentic connections with guests, partners and team members, while getting to know guests on a personal level and you them
Enjoyment for guests, team members and partners. They want people to enjoy spending time, being involved and representing the café, from the environment, service, food, and all interactions
Consistent quality in service and product, you always know what to expect
They are invested in the community of Chilliwack, in the quality offered, in the experience of the guests & in their team
Peggy and Cam look forward to welcoming you to Cultivate Cafe.
