Abstract:
Four-year-old Biltmore, Campbell, Smith Restorations of Asheville has built a nationwide and international reputation for restoration and preservation of artwork. When the firm was established in 1982, it was jointly owned by Biltmore Co. and Campbell, Smith of London. Biltmore Co. recently bought out the London side to become sole owner. While the company has taken on restorations as small as $250, it has also taken on some of the nation's largest restoration jobs. For example, the company spent two and a half years on the $2.3 million restoration of the Pennsylvania State Capitol rotunda in Harrisburg, as well as state capitol projects in Texas, New Jersey, Alabama, and Tennessee.

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts moved to Winston-Salem in 1937 because the founders, who arrived in town with a combined $25 in their pockets, felt their fledging business should be in a town with a nationally advertised product. From this humble beginning the popular doughnuts, once the state's best kept secret, have expanded across the Southeast and beyond. The company employs around 2,000, including 200 at the Winston-Salem home base. The company is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary in 1987.
