Celebrating a Major Milestone: 50 Years In Business
The leadership at this fifty-year-old company, now in its third generation, wanted to celebrate this important milestone while honoring the legacy of the founder. The result is a commemorative book that highlights the company’s many accomplishments and deeply held values, including the chairman’s belief that “the company’s success is the people. We couldn’t do it without them.”

A Business History and a Family History
After one of the founders of a regional chain of convenience stores died, his family wanted to fulfill his wish of producing a book about his life story. Luckily, he had created several audio recordings of his memories of the company’s early years.
With those recordings, along with interviews of family members, Story Trust produced a beautifully bound memoir and memorial book honoring this remarkable man.

A Legacy of Deeply Rooted Values and a Culture of Innovation
A third-generation, family-owned business knows that their story has the power to prolong the enterprise for seven generations and beyond.
Story Trust has crafted a history book that celebrates the company’s many accomplishments over the last quarter century. A key feature of the book is a series of personal narratives and reflections by family members, long-time employees, and board members highlighting the enduring values that have sustained the company—and the family—for over eight decades.
More than a time line of important dates and milestones, an oral history captures a company’s stories in people’s own words and voices, adding personality and a rich human dimension to a business history. Story Trust will interview key stakeholders, record them with broadcast-quality audio, and edit their stories to bring out the very best—preserving your company’s history for future leaders, shareholders, customers, and employees.
