Each time a new year comes around we are all filled with appreciation for those we love, hope for new resolutions and determination to reach new goals. As 2011 begins, these sentiments are especially true at Texas Treats!
Since 1991, Jackie has been riding the herd at Texas Treats! Vivacious Jackie Schwitter created an atmosphere of down right warm hospitality for all who came to Texas Treats in search of Texas-size gourmet baskets, souvenirs, Texas food items, and gifts all with that special Lone Star theme. Jackie’s long time dream has been to travel with her husband and spend more time with her family. Finding the right person with that tenacious Texas spunk to take over the ownership reins of Texas took some time…but then Linda Linton came to town!
Linda has that great warmth and smile that makes you want to pull up a rocking chair on the front porch and just sit and visit for a while! She is eager to get to know the loyal long time clients of Texas Treats and to find new ways to meet some new folks in need of Texas themed gift items for their loved ones and clients.
Linda grew up in El Paso, Texas, and graduated from Texas Tech University. Linda worked for an entrepreneurial Technology company for 11 years, and started a family. After taking time off to stay home with her daughter and son, she decided to get back into the business world and wanted to own her own company. With the help of her loving husband and family support, she has managed to learn the Texas Treats business.
Texans are a rare bread. If you are born in Texas you have that Texas “can do” spirit. Linda has set high personal expectations. Linda’s got the Texas “can do” spirit. There’s nothing for which she won’t go the extra mile. Texas Hospitality is what it’s all about no matter what business you’re in!
Texas means a lot to her because the Mountains of the West and the forests of the East. The rolling Plains, and the sun-bleached sands of the Coastal lands. We love our Cowboys, Rangers, Astros, Texans; Stars, Spurs, Jackalopes and Mavericks. We Texans will welcome you, whoever you may be, wherever you’re from, and whatever you dream.
And so with deep appreciation for Jackie and the company she built, Linda and the Texas Treats team are planning new Texas size goals and are filled with that good ol ‘ Texas determination to reach these new goals. We hope you will follow our progress and join in our journey to help spread the special spirit of our Lone Star State!
