Fern Kreis, Manager at The Canopy

Fern Kreiss knows Veterans. Her father was in the Army, her brother the Airforce. She has friends in the Navy, and Veterans of all kinds stop by The Canopy every day. Military life is all around. “I like to take care of people who take care of me,” Fern says earnestly. The Canopy is a Howard County institution, started over 35 years ago by Fern’s husband and his business partner. Now, it’s their pleasure to serve those that have put their lives at risk for our country. When asked what she loves about working there, Fern could hardly choose: “Everything. I love working with the customers and the employees.” Serving good food is simply a passion for these community minded restaurateurs.
