Established in 2004, this company manufactures high end, cutting edge, permanent botanicals for interior environments. They have a diversified customer base that contains hospitals, schools, retirement centers, interior designers, corporations, model homes and retail furniture stores. The owners were ready to retire.

The Buyers, Steve and Vicki Kelley, high school sweethearts from West Texas, have been married for 29 years. Steve has 20 years of restaurant experience. "In 2005, we decided to tackle a new field and we bought Airway Executive Aircraft Catering, through Certified Business Brokers (CBB). We brought our years of restaurant hospitality to in-flight catering. We wanted to enhance the aircraft catering experience with the qualities of fine-restaurant dining and boy, did it work. The high-end clientele really responded to our quality of operations, with concentrated service and food quality. Airway Executive Aircraft Catering became the contract caterer for the national companies Aviation Services Network, Air Chef, Flex Jet, Flight Options, XO Jet, and Net Jets. We also serviced flight menus for Spectra, ConocoPhillips, Occidental, Dow, Chevron, Halliburton, and Anadarko. Celebrities, former presidents, ambassadors, and royalty from around the globe were also among our frequent and happy clientele. Houston has a well-known and loved culinary foot-print and we were happy to represent our great city and her diverse food culture. Our motto was always "The Sky's the limit!"

The buyers were ready to embark on a new venture and re-engaged with us in March. They looked at many business and fell in love with Creative Branch and its owners.

This business was sold within 6-1/2 months of going to market. Seller financing was part of the transaction.
