Hi, my name is Lois Pruitt and I’m the owner of The Frederick Basket Co. Being from a small farm in Pennsylvania, I was taught self preservation and hard work at a young age. Since gaining ownership in 2016, we’ve grown in sales, staff, clients, and have opened a new warehouse production facility. Even as the self proclaimed “Boss Lady”, the business would not be where it is without the work of my excellent staff to make a business dream come true. My goal is for the business to grow in clients over the coming years, and have a legacy brand for me and my family. The success of my business would be nothing without the local community of Frederick. I want the people to view Frederick Basket Co. as a locally owned, woman owned business that has integrity and provides a small town feel with big results. We want to provide these big services to corporations and local businesses; Providing customers with respect, treating them as a friend and making the community better is my mantra. When I’m not at work, I like to relax with my dog Milo and taste-test expired products from the store.
