Falyn Lynch, Breann Tresoor, WrapZone, Duncan
A passion for delicious food and a keen business sense encouraged Falyn Lynch and her sister, and business partner Breann Tresoor, to become entrepreneurs. When they started looking at business options, they found WrapZone, a BC based healthy wrap and smoothie bar that uses quality fresh ingredients to create a delicious alternative to fast food. They decided to bring the franchise to Duncan, BC.
At WrapZone, all the wraps and smoothies are prepared with premium, natural, wholesome ingredients and are made fresh to order. For thirteen consecutive years WrapZone has been voted Vancouver’s number one restaurant in The Georgia Straight’s Golden Plate Awards “Best Wrap” category!
