Abstract:
Founders Carol Place and Ginger Travis started Travis Place, Inc. based on a common complaint among women--they hated to shop for underwear. Women wanted high-quality, natural fiber products, long on comfort, and available through the mail. However, when Travis Place began, natural fibers products were hard to find in a market filled with synthetics, but the two pressed on, making $14,000 their first year. Georgann Eubanks, one of the principals and a Durham graphic artist, designed a catalog, which is sent to 200,000 people. Sales in 1987 should top $400,000 with $1 million a possibility in 1988.

Abstract:
Johnson describes the workings of two pickle packing companies in North Carolina that have captured almost all of the state's pickle market--Mount Olive Pickle Company of Mount Olive and Cates Pickles of Faison. The two companies are located less than eight miles apart in the heart of the state's tobacco, soybean, pepper, and cucumber country. Nationwide the pickle market generates over $1 billion, and the two companies work hard at getting a slice of it.
