The author shares her personal knowledge, opinions and business stories - things that worked and things that didn't - from her own Texas regional gift basket business. From starting the business without any experience to selling the successful business that it became. Doris Miller started her Texas gift basket company in 2002. While shopping for a Texas made cup for a gift, she noticed companies selling Texas gift baskets with things not actually made in Texas, even items made in China Determined to correct this situation, she created her own regional gift basket company specializing in selling only Texas made items. The business was very successful and in December 2004 the company was recognized by the Wall Street Journal as one of five best regional gift basket companies in the USA. She has since sold the company but her experiences in developing, operating and even selling the company will guide you as you create your own unique regional gift basket business.
