Meet Nelson owner of Choice Payment Solutions your Trusted Saskatoon Payment Solution Provider

Choice Payment Solutions are your Trusted Saskatoon payment solution provider. In his latest Choice business tip, Nelson Crowder, the owner, explains what Choice Payment Solutions is, what they do to help small local businesses in Saskatoon and are and how it came to be. 


History of Nelson and Choice Payment Solutions


Established in April of 2016, Choice Payment Solutions are owned and operated by local entrepreneur Nelson Crowder. While the company is only a few years old, the history of Nelson's involvement in point of sale payments began in 2005 when a friend was visiting Saskatoon from Halifax. They worked for UNPS, which is now called First Data. Over the course of a meal and a couple of beers, they discussed electronic payments and POS systems. Things went well and shortly after Nelson accepted a Regional Account Manager position with the company. Nelson was unfamiliar with sales but had strong customer service skills from his previous role as an IT Technician. This experience proved to be helpful when managing and building customer relationships.


 

There were many changes in the POS (Point of Sale) industry between February 2005 and starting his own company in 2016. The cost of accepting payments drastically changed over this time along with major advances in the technology. Terminals were ( and still are ) constantly changing and upgrading, as was the speed of payments. It's an exciting time to be in business! 


Nelson and Choice Payments Solutions primarily conducts business in the Saskatchewan however, they do have clients across Canada. They go to market through various local partners including the Greater Saskatoon Chamber Of Commerce and they have technology partners that provide cutting edge solutions to clients.


Commitment to Community


Nelson is committed to the community and can be seen supporting many non- profits and business events. Most recently Choice Payment Solutions provided sponsorship of the Care For Kids by Wiegers Alice In Funderland  Comedy Cabaret  a 2019 event that raised over $500,000.00 in 1 evening for the Jim Pattison Children's Hospital 


“Launching YOUR business is OUR business.” 


Out of the office, Nelson enjoys spending time with his two children Emma & Jackson. They enjoy fishing, snowmobiling and travelling for adventures with family and friends.

We all have fond memories of home cooked meals growing up and many of us enjoyed fresh garden produce and preserves too. HomeQuarter Coffeehouse & Bakery is owned and operated by Lee & Grace Whittington, and managed by their youngest son Christopher.  The trio offers true homestyle cooking and baking as well as amazing perfectly brewed coffee. Being raised on the farm instilled a love of agriculture and a passion for baking and cooking in the family. The catering side of their business can accommodate up to 150 people, and they also boast a meeting space at the establishment that they rent out for private events. 

In 1996, Lee & Grace bought Riverbend Plantation, and now they sell their delicious ( and locally famous) Saskatoon berry preserves at HomeQuarter Coffeehouse & Bakery, along with other locations. 


HomeQuarter Coffeehouse & Bakery has had a location in the Saskatoon Farmer's Market for over 9 years and now with their larger location in the Banks Condo Development River Landing they are able to offer more of their amazing services to their customers & clients. You can try many great family recipes like Gramma Jean's butter tarts, carrot cake, cinnamon buns, Cornish pasties, homemade soup and much more.  It’s the perfect space to relax — whether you want to read a book by the fire, get cozy or hunker down to do some work in one of the booths, or watch the world go by at the sun-drenched bistro tables on the upper level.


Don't take it from us - read what some of their clients have to say when they shared their experience. 

"I have known Grace for over 10 years visiting their location at the farmer's market on many occasions. It's so nice to see that they have opened up a larger location.
