Small Business Owner, Father, Husband

My name is Frank Pierce. I am a North Carolina native who grew up in a working class family in Southeast Raleigh. As the oldest of 5 boys, I started working full-time at the age of 12 years to help my family make ends meet.

I paid my way through college, working 60 hours a week over a year at restaurants in order to afford tuition. I made the Dean’s List 3 times and graduated with Bachelor of Science degree in General Studies from University of Mount Olive, in Mount Olive, NC. I continued to run restaurants after graduation and in 2014, I started my own landscaping business. At times I took on a second job to ensure the success of my business and to take care of my family.

I currently reside in Raleigh with my wife Kristi, a Wake County Public School teacher, along with my three kids

I take pride in serving the community, I work with the NCFPSC, coach youth baseball and I'm extremely proud of the Holiday Firefighters Meal, an organization I started with my wife. Through the organization we fed all 28 fire stations in Raleigh on Thanksgiving and Christmas.
