When and how did your business get started? Knupper's was started in the 1930's by Richard and Lucile Knupper. John Heaton bought the business from the Knupper's in the 1960's, and he and his wife Sue have owned the business since then.

What is your business best known for?
 Knupper's is known for its high quality plant material (including fresh Christmas trees!) and flowers, its landscaping services, and its knowledgeable staff. It's known for its commitment to the village of Palatine and for hiring local people.

Does your business offer a special deals card or program? Knupper's has a loyalty program called Knupper Bucks that gives customers 1 buck for each 10 dollars spent, year-round. Two times a year we have "Knupper Bucks Festivals" where customers can redeem their bucks for up to half the cost of any plant material.

What's something interesting about your business your customers might not know? John's dad was a gladiola farmer in Nebraska, and for a long time, Knupper's had a winter business of wholesaling gladiola bulbs to over 500 Walmarts across the United States.

Why did you choose Palatine to open your business? Palatine was a great place for young families who were buying houses and needing flowers and landscaping for their yards.
