Figi’s Celebrates 70 Years!

Author: Mason Companies, Inc.

Since 1944, Figi’s has delivered the finest quality gifts to discerning customers across America.  Figi’s long history begins with a former federal cheese inspector named John Figi, and his wife Ann.  Together they founded “Figi’s” Gifts in Good Taste in the kitchen of the family’s apartment in Marshfield, Wisconsin in the early 1940s.  Over time the company has grown and evolved into the outstanding catalog and internet food and gift business it is today.  But even today, the company still uses John Figi’s creed as the yardstick to measure performance and commitment to satisfaction.

“Sell good gifts, at good prices with satisfaction guaranteed… no matter what!
Follow this rule and customers will come to you.”
