Local entrepreneur Marilyn Taylor, owner of The Bountiful Basket, was recently honored among the Top 50 Gift Basket Businesses in the United States. The industry survey was conducted by Festivities Publications and the Gift Basket Review magazine, a leading international publication in the gift industry. Bountiful Basket is the only San Bernardino County gift business to achieve this honor, and one of only three California businesses to be acknowledged for this success.
Achieving the title of “Top 50” was achieved through a lengthy application process which examines a company’s growth, customer base, product offering and overall profitability. Taylor's personal involvement with the business model from inception to execution ensures that each gift supports the company’s objective of providing “elegant gifts, outstanding service, personal attention and reasonable prices.” Taylor has also been profiled in the Gift Basket Review for her outstanding and creative corporate designs.
Marilyn Taylor credits her success in penetrating the national business market to her commitment to personal service. “Many businesses want to order a gift that can’t be found anywhere else. They’re tired of the traditional fruit baskets and are looking for something original. Many want to have their own products included in the basket or want a custom message on their gifts. Everyone loves their name proudly displayed on the ribbon."
We treat every customer as though they’re a “business next door” and they come back again and again,” says. This formula has proven to be successful for Taylor.
Taylor is an active participant in the Redlands Chamber of Commerce the San Bernardino Chamber of Commerce and the Highland Chamber of Commerce and touts many customers throughout San Bernardino and Riverside County including: Arrowhead Credit Union, Somerford Place, Norton Community Credit Union, The Business Press, Citizens Business Bank, Keller Williams, Carlone Construction and GMID.
Marilyn Taylor has a strong commitment to the community. Marilyn often donates her time and materials to community organizations such as Volunteer Center, C.I.D., San Bernardino Humane Society and the Alzheimer's Association.
