OWNER STORY – BRETT AND JESS
Not everybody gets to wake up every morning and live out their dreams. For most of us, we get railroaded by our own fears, our beliefs, and the comfort of our daily routines. For a lot of us, it’s a struggle to conquer those fears and see beyond them to what’s possible.
We all know that leaving behind security to live our dreams can be risky, and there’s always the possibility of failure. But, there’s also the possibility of success.
Meet Brett and Jessica, an active, hard-working, and passionate couple – and one of HERC’s very own success stories!
Brett and Jess opened their HERC’s store in Winnipeg in May 2020, amidst the chaos of a global pandemic. While this isn’t the way anybody would want to start a new journey, they accepted the challenge with hard work and hope – and it’s paying off. Even though the store had to start off with modified hours and a smaller-than-ideal customer capacity, it’s clear that its short opening has already started to make an impact on the community.
And despite all the difficulties, when asked “What is your biggest dream?” the two replied, “We’re doing it.”
That’s not something you hear every day, is it?
What makes this store stand out isn’t the number of products that it sells, but the quality of products. And the owners are adamant about personally testing the products they sell to make sure they’re providing only the best possible options. They’re even happy to share their own stories, experiences, and favourite recipes on their Instagram page!

When you step into Brett and Jess’ store, you aren’t bombarded by 12-foot walls packed with products. You’re not afraid that you might knock something over with your bag. And it doesn’t take you forever to sift through aisles and aisles of protein powders to find the one you’re looking for. Instead, you walk into an open and bright room. And the first thing you see isn’t the products, but the smiling owners waiting to greet you. Or, if you’re lucky, it’s their golden retriever, Beau, who will be the first one to hobble your way.
Brett and Jess have made it their mission to make sure that everybody who steps into their store receives the best customer service – not just a product.
“We want to create a tailored, warm and fuzzy experience.”
The two young owners have a world of adventures and hobbies outside of their store that contributes to their success. Firefighter and wedding planner, talented cook and avid baseball player, FireFit champ and running enthusiast, this power duo has a plethora of personal interests and experience that helps them connect with their community.
If you’re looking for some inspiration, head over to HERC’s Winnipeg and meet Brett and Jess. Whether you’re looking for tips on how to get your health back on track, advice on how to stay motivated during these difficult times, or just some friendly neighborhood chatter, we’re sure these two will give you a burst of inspiration and smiles.
If Brett and Jessica have taught us anything, it’s that we can all choose to believe in ourselves and make our dreams come true, even in the hardest of circumstances!
