About Us

We are the Johnson Family: Ben, Kelly, Harper, Jeremiah, and Bodie. Welcome Service began in 1978, Nancy Wilcox bought the business in 1996, and we purchased Welcome Services in February 2022.

We were attracted to Welcome Services because of 3 main reasons: 

  • Welcome Services focuses on improving the lives of newcomers and local businesses in our community.
  • Welcome Services has been serving the Cape Fear community for 44 years!
  • Welcome Services aligns with our personal values of building strong communities and supporting local business.

Welcome Service is dedicated to assisting both new community members and local businesses. Our team helps to introduce local newcomers in New Hanover, Brunswick, and Pender Counties to nearby businesses, organizations, and community resources. Along with helping new residents, Welcome Service offers those same businesses and organizations a chance to get their names out to new potential customers as they make their home here.

Our Welcomers are friendly, dedicated women who are passionate about enriching Wilmington’s coastal Carolina community. The team greets new neighbors with gift bags delivered straight to their door. These welcome bags include guides and recommendations for local businesses and hotspots to help newcomers become familiar with the area. This also offers businesses the opportunity to introduce themselves to new residents. From necessities like dentists and car repair to fun gathering spots like restaurants and spas, businesses can make their names known by getting their brands introduced in the Welcome Services gift bags. 

In the past 44 years, Welcome Services has personally welcomed over 125,000 people and over 10,000 new businesses to our community.
