The Pasta Tree has built a reputation on offering the most delicious, nutritious pasta products. The business will operate as a general partnership with Jill Forman and John Wingate both performing management responsibilities.
The Pasta Tree is owned by Jill Forman and John Wingate.
The Pasta Tree's first products were created in the kitchen of Jill Forman. It was in her kitchen that she first created fresh pasta that was used in a part-time catering business operated by John Wingate and herself.
Customers quickly began to request special orders of the pasta products. They proved to be so popular that Jill and John pooled their resources and began The Pasta Tree. They opened a storefront and began to sell directly to the public.
After one year of operation, John was successful in getting the city's natural food stores to carry The Pasta Tree products. Over the last two years, The Pasta Tree's products have become popular in upscale natural food stores in Springfield.
The Pasta Tree's operations has expanded dramatically over the past three years. What was initially a two person operation has expanded to now include a staff of four in production, delivery, and sales.
The following table and chart illustrates the sales success of The Pasta Tree.
