Keri Zollo, owner and operator of Carolina Monogram & Company, is a shining example of a Main Street Champion. Keri has owned and operated a store in downtown Fuquay-Varina for 3 years. After moving to Fuquay-Varina and falling in love with the community, she knew that it was where her business needed to be. During her time on Broad Street, she has worked to unify and support business owners and patrons alike. Keri has given full credit to the community and other local business owners that gave her the opportunity to expand her business, including launching 1909 Design in the spring of 2016. She also took the initiative to start a First Friday event that drastically increases pedestrian traffic and has an economic impact on downtown business owners.
Keri practices what she preaches, and can be found "getting her local on" in other downtown establishments and promoting them along the way. The Town of Fuquay-Varina is honored to name Keri Zollo its North Carolina Main Street Champion.
