The company was founded by Richard Mitchell, father of Janis Duckett. Chris and Janis met in a grocery store and found out that they shared the same birthdays (AKA destiny). So, the two began their life long relationship together by kicking it in Europe for a few years until Richard called them one day and said, “get back over here or I am selling the business”. They married in 1979 and took over the business in 1980. They have four children: Kailah, Shanna, Brandon, and Jonathan.
