My name is Mitra Ghiasi, I am the owner of San Francisco Gift Baskets. I have lived in the Bay Area for 20 years and in San Francisco for eight years. My background is in computer programming, but in 1989 I decided I wanted to do something more creative. I decided to start my own business in hospitality, the Bistro Coffee Shop. After running the coffee shop and a number of other successful businesses I decided my heart was in making gift baskets because I love working with people and making their lives easier.
About the company:
Let me now tell you a little bit about my company. We are a San Francisco based gift basket company specializing in unique gift solutions. We can accommodate any size order from a single gift basket to your entire holiday order. We also do events and corporate gifts and snack boxes tailored to suit your needs. We provide outstanding quality to our customers and have worked with a number of key clients. We specialize in the following areas:
-Gift Baskets and Gifts for All Occasions
-Promotional Products and Imprinted Promotional Materials
-Convention and Meeting Gifts
-Holiday Gifts (Corporate, Family and Friends)
-Centerpieces for Weddings, Birthdays, Baby Showers & any other party you can think of.
There are several key components to my business that sets us apart from our competitors. First, we are able to design unique custom baskets to meet your wishes. With our personalized services, we are able to come to your office to meet with you to discuss your needs. Second, we are local so we are available for same day service and delivery. Third, our baskets are on trend with the newest innovations in gift giving from spa baskets to organic and sugar-free baskets. Fourth, we have a large warehouse, which has the capacity to produce orders over 1,000 baskets at one time.
In addition, I have over sixteen years of experience as business owner. During this time, I’ve been the sole owner and operator of my businesses. I have been the sole owner/operator of the following businesses over the past sixteen years:
1. Bistro deli and catering establishment located in Concord, CA.
2. Pacific Time, Danville, CA
3. San Francisco Expression News & Gifts, San Francisco, CA
4. San Francisco News and Gifts, San Francisco, CA.
For the last two businesses, I was operating a parallel online gift basket business. In the past few years I have expanded my gift/gift basket business tremendously and felt I needed to concentrate more on this growing business. I sold my store on March 2006, and moved to my new location at 432 Bryant Street. I feel that after running several successful businesses, I have found the perfect career for myself in the gift business. It is a combination of creativity, marketing, sales and customer service. I love meeting new people and helping them find the perfect give.
We deliver locally and ship nationwide. If you are in the Bay Area, we can provide same-day service if you place your order before noon. If you need additional information or any references, please feel free to call me at 415-706-6554. I look forward to working with you.
We work with a number of important clients, including Shaklee, Les Concierge, Carr America, Rreef, CBRE, Jones Lange LaSalle and many others. We recently made 400 baskets for one of the most popular talk shows on prime time TV.
