Hey ya’ll. My name is Sophia Ferranti an I am co-owner and founding partner of Cheeky Rose L.L.C. I am a certified dental assistant by trade and a mom/partner by day. Working in Dentistry has its perks, like a Monday through Thursday, typical 9-5 schedule. But as I was working full time, I started to feel as if I was missing out on my daughter growing up. I wasn’t able to partake in the morning school drop off’s, the afternoon pick-ups or the school functions and I was losing time to focus on myself and my family. I would come home from a demanding day at work yet still put on my mommy pants when I got home, and it became draining. I was losing sight of what made me truly happy.
To much surprise, when COVID-19 struck, it blessed me in more ways than one. I was blessed to finally be able to spend that much needed quality time with my daughter and family that I had been craving. Having this time to reassess my life goals brought out the go-getter mentality in me (thanks dad) and forced me to hone in on what I truly wanted out of my career and Cheeky Rose was born. “Where there’s a will, there’s a way” is one of my favorite quotes because I always figure out a way to make things happen one way or another. I love my career choice in dentistry but being an extrovert and social butterfly makes it hard for me to be in a monotonous routine. I thrive when I’m being challenged, and I love change. Since leaving my career in dentistry and putting my sole focus into Cheeky Rose, I have been able to showcase my creativeness alongside my sister. Being able to be in business with my sister is something most people probably wouldn’t be able to do. They always say never go into business with family but that’s not the case for us. It’s not always easy, but we balance each other out. We understand on another’s strengths and weaknesses and at the end of the day we know that family is the root of everything in our lives. I look forward to showing you that you can be bold and make a change to better yourself and your family. I hope to inspire you to create those memories and traditions with our products and that you feel bold and confident enough to have those conversations that evoke change and give you your ideal life. I did it, and so can you!
My name is Bianca Ferranti and I am Co-owner at Cheeky Rose L.L.C. alongside my sister. I have a strong background in retail, high level management and fashion merchandising for I spent 10 years working at a big box, fast fashion retailer. But with that experience, came high demand which lead to countless family holidays missed, less time spent with my niece whom I adore greatly or weekend trips with my friends and ultimately unhappiness. From the time I was 17 until 28 I poured my heart into someone else’s dream. A company who didn’t know who I was, how hard I was working, or the countless hours I spent off the clock completing tasks because we were short staffed. The list can go on for days.
Growing up with such a close-knit family, our parents instilled in us that family comes before anything and I came to realize that the moments I was missing with my family were not worth the time and effort that I was exerting into something that I had lost my passion for. I had gone back and forth about my decision to leave my retail job for several years and in December 2018 I finally pulled the trigger. To say it is the best decision I have ever made is truly an understatement. I have never been happier. When Sophia and I started Cheeky Rose I was thrilled. I have always wanted to own my own business, particularly a boutique, so it was the perfect fit. I have been able to make my own schedule, utilize all of my acquired skills from retail and most importantly spend quality time with my family and friends. My mission is for people to know that its ok to take a leap of faith and know that all the pieces will fall into place just as they are meant to. Cheeky Rose has helped me find my passion again and I am excited to share this journey with you all!
