Cider House’s roots extend all the way back to California. Back in 2003 Lennie Appelquist began a small website design business called FreeMarket Media Group in Topanga California, a quiet town in the hills outside of Los Angeles. It had started as just something fun to do on days he wasn’t acting as a director’s lead right-hand man on a movie set. We all need a good hobby to entertain us, right? Well, at the time, he had no idea where this hobby would lead him…

He discovered he had a knack for coding and an eye for great design. The turning point may have been when someone asked him, “How much would you charge to make a website for me?” The question stopped him in his tracks. But then excitedly, he began thinking of what his answer would be…

As time went on and his talents and passion for his business blossomed, so did his intention of growing his company. Back then he did it all: he was the designer, coder, writer, and owner. But when Elizabeth came into his life, a lot of things changed (not the least of which was her eventually becoming his wife). After finding, at last, the love of her life, Elizabeth made the hard choice to move away from her hometown of Easthampton, Massachusetts where she lived across the street from her aging parents. They saw her joy and had insisted she follow her happiness and move to California to be with Lennie. So in 2009 she packed up whatever could fit into her little car (including her 2 big dogs), and she drove across country to start a new chapter in her life. She was all in. Together they embraced the idea of expanding FreeMarket Media Group into a Design Agency. And since two heads are better than one, the company took off.
