Native Texans, Jim Estill, John Cosby and John Peters, came together and pooled their resources to build a garden center focused on serving Texas gardeners. It started with one store in Richardson. With a focus on customer service and a promise of quality products, the founders searched nationwide for premium products and seeds. Then they forged deep and lasting relationships with local growers to bring fresh, large, premium plants to local gardeners. Two and half decades later the Calloway's founders still play their leadership role in the organization. As the company has grown so has the Calloway's team of dedicated experts. Each customer and every season brings a new chapter and the Calloway's journey continues with a passion to serve and bring beauty to Texas gardens.
Jim Estill, Company Founder and President
"Together, John Cosby, John Peters and I started out with the idea that our customer's success was rule number one. That's what drives us today ... even after 25 years. That means we must find the finest plants, brand the best products, hire the most knowledgeable people and guarantee everything."
John Cosby, Company Founder and VP, Real Estate
"We didn't start a cookie-cutter company, where people march in rote step. We find locations in growing communities, build clean, easy-to-shop stores and staff them with great people. Our idea is to stay open to the unique characteristics of each store and allow the store staff latitude to really serve our customers."
John Peters, Company Founder and VP, Operations
"One of the important ideas we shared was that we would hire the best people, give them real authority to run their stores and have some fun. I'm proud of the fact that we have more Texas Master Certified Nursery Professionals in our stores than any other retailer. Our team is passionate and that's what makes them great!"
