“The way I see it, life is a beautiful adventure. A wild, magical, chaotic, madly-beautifully unplanned adventure.“
There is something great and inspiring and liberating about hitting the open road…driving with the windows rolled down, Janis Joplin cranked up, letting your hair and all your worries blow in the wind…in search of something new.
Something different. Something yet to be discovered out there in the wild blue yonder. That’s how we, my mom-Janie…she’s the relentless, never-say-die fanatic of all things junky, my sister-Amie…the eclectic, wild-at-heart creative soul, and myself-Jolie…the true-blue southern girl with an undying love for junk & biscuits, got caught up in a business that has taken our lives down a path we never could have planned for.
There were no stodgy business plans for this ride . . . just grassroots dreams and a whole lotta faith! We set out to find a great business, but instead found a great life.
It all started long, long ago in a one-light town – Overton, Texas. Our little Mayberry…where the twang is as thick as the gossip, the folks are friendly, and the football field is a spiritual experience.
Amie and I were raised in a hard-working, down-to-Earth family. Our parents, Janie and Phillip, opened Overton’s first, and finest pizza restaurant, when we were just kids. We didn’t know it then but we were learning the basics of business firsthand.
Basics that can’t be taught in a textbook. Through mopping floors, baking pizzas, and learning from our customers and co-workers, our pride of knee-scrapin’ hard work and our entrepreneurial genes laid the foundation for the road ahead.
After graduating college, Amie began an 8-5 job in Austin sporting business suits and matching pumps. Although she found the fast-paced political world intriguing, she quickly grew tired of endless traffic, runners in her stockings, and water cooler gossip. She longed to let her hair down and release the inner gypsy. she decided to follow her heart and go in search of her wildest dreams… she loaded her car, stashed that law school acceptance letter in her glove box, bid her co-workers farewell, and cruised out of the corporate world on a wing and a prayer.
“IT’S A BUSINESS BUILT NOT ON FOCUS GROUPS, BUT ON THE SPIRIT OF ADVENTURE. IT’S A TESTAMENT TO THE LOVE OF THE OPEN ROAD, DR PEPPERS, & TACOS“
