Published 04/28/2011, The Daily Republic

AVON — A small flower shop that started in the 1950s has bloomed into a large wholesale greenhouse serving several retailers throughout South Dakota and into Nebraska, Minnesota and Iowa.
Lyle Mensch and his son, Korey, run the family business, which Lyle’s mother, Ada, started in 1957. As Lyle grew, he started building greenhouses to raise a few bedding plants in the spring. As the business grew, it morphed from a greenhouse operation and flower shop into Mensch Greenhouse Inc.
