When Dean Folkvord and his family began Wheat Montana Farms and Bakery many years ago, he planted an entrepreneurial seed. Hillary, one of two daughters along side her sister have spouted from that seed into very successful young business owners. The Folkvord girls got their start in making their own money many years ago at the Wheat Montana Deli in Three Forks, selling floral arrangements and playing music outside the front doors. Perhaps fate provided a little foreshadowing in their story when their work caught the eye of none other than Martha Stuart herself, who purchased several bundles! As time passed, The Folkvord Family began to phase out of the wheat and retail industries and began a journey into hospitality business. They purchased the now famous Sacajawea Inn in Three Forks and breathed new life into a historic hotel in small town Montana. With the success of that property evident, they purchased the old Rainbow Hotel in Bozeman, MT and have turned it into a boutique hotel: the RSVP Hotel. Today, Hillary speaks candidly about her influences in business, especially how growing up in an entrepreneurial family benefited her and her sister. As she comes into her own as a successful business woman, she shares openly about the things she has learned along the way.
