Jumping Beans soars

This is the seventh in a series recognizing businesses that took home awards from the 29th business excellence awards held by the Penticton and Wine Country Chamber of Commerce

A unique business that offers an indoor playground for kids while their parents sip coffee was one of several businesses recognized at the chamber’s October event.

Jumping Beans Play Cafe on Warren Ave. E was given the “family friendly excellence award.”

"It was great, because we are all about family. That is the heart and soul of our business," said owner Tricia Hernes.

The business opened in January 2015, after Hernes recognized a need in the community for something like this.

"I am a mother of three, who is fairly active in the community and there always seemed to be a need for somewhere for young families to go anytime during the day," she said. "So after having my third we decided the time was right for us to open this business."

The business offers a full indoor play space with a wooden play structure, bouncy house, an eye play interactive play floor, reading corner and art centre, all with a full service coffee shop on site.

Hernes said they have been very well received since they started up.

"We have received a lot of wonderful, positive feedback and been able to partner with other organizations."

She credits their success on being one of a kind, and working hard to recognize what local families need.

They plan to continue offering similar services with a name change planned for next year.

"It is changing but we will still have the same business plan," she said.

Jumping Beans is located at 197 Warren Ave. E.
