"Working with Krista & Lantz the last seven months has been instrumental in getting through 2020. As a new brand that launched in 2019 right before the pandemic, I have struggled with many of the issues plaguing young brands and scrambling to navigate through an unpredictable time period. Developing a brand comes with so many layers that RFTP has been able to peel away one at a time with patience and a library of retail knowledge. Through deep-dive workshops, I've been able to bring to life my brand story and as a founder, find my voice. It's an immense pleasure working with them and I'm excited for the challenges & rewards ahead."

“We met Krista and Lantz when they happened into our shop one day. They seemed to know just about every brand we had in the shop so I asked, how do you know so much? They were modest in explaining what they do through their company RFTP and I was intrigued. We talked some more but when they left their conversation stayed with me. I have had a business for 20 years designing interiors but a retail shop for only two. I knew this was a new journey for my company and knew I was going to need help. It took a while but I made the call to RFTP and it has been a learning experience from day one! We are going on a year now working together and their knowledge, expertise and guidance has made a world of difference for me in understanding my goals, how the business should run and how to insure we are here for many years to come while having FUN doing it!”

"RFTP continues to be instrumental in supporting the success of our company. Firstly, Krista is an incredibly kind-hearted person-something we take very seriously! She assisted us in structure, best practices, how to interact with our clients, and knowing our numbers! She kept us in touch with personal and company goals on an ongoing basis. We cannot recommend her and her team enough!"
