Young Brent Bumpers and Sam DeWitt got their first taste of world-class
cookies in Brent's kitchen. Nothing too unusual about that, right?
What was a bit out of the ordinary was the location of Brent's kitchen:
the Governor's Mansion of Arkansas. The year was 1972, his dad was
governor, and the cookies were the product of the Mansion's legendary
cook, Eliza Ashley.
Fast forward to 1984. Brent was a federal
prosecutor and Sam a phone company exec. Yet both still longed for the
taste of those unforgettable morsels. Together they dedicated themselves
to a higher, more ambitious calling: making those delicious, gourmet
cookies available to the public. It took three nights a week of slaving
away over a friend's pizza oven for over a year before they got the taste
they were after. The wait and effort were worth it.
Brent & Sam's
Gourmet Cookies has grown rapidly in the past decade. The company now
occupies its own building and employs a staff of over 40. The year 2005
marks our 20th year of business. Throughout all this growth and change,
one thing remains the same: every single batch of cookies is made from
scratch in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Balm Innovations, LLC
is a provider of innovative,
effective natural personal care products. The company was
formed after a visit of an Executive MBA team to the
University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS)
search of a technology around which to develop a business
plan for the 2004 Governor’s Award for Entrepreneurial
business plan competition. It was
discovered that a topical cream referred to as “miraculous”
had been developed by a UAMS pharmaceutical researcher.
This cream, now called Omnibalm, was
presented as a highly effective product for skin irritations
that achieved significant and powerful results after other
skin care products had failed. Through the process of
developing the business plan and verifying the effectiveness
of the product first hand, an MBA student became interested
in the business opportunity and formed Balm Innovations in
August 2004 to commercialize Omnibalm and
related natural personal care products.
