It’s where we come from and where we’re going.
Most people are not aware that we did not start as a gourmet gift company. Our roots take us back to when we sold wooden gift boxes to gourmet food companies, some of the biggest names in the business including Williams-Sonoma. In 1979, we developed a novel idea: “Brand a company’s logo on our wooden box and fill it with cheese or other gourmet items. What a great business gift!” A new business was born!
We were the first company to offer gourmet food in packages that included something recipients would retain as a lasting reminder of their gift. We started with wooden collector’s boxes and hardwood cutting boards. Then we added collectible wooden trucks, pencil cups, reusable gift boxes and more. Recently we added gourmet ice cream packages as a summertime treat, another first for the promotional products industry.
