" F R O M A S M A L L S E E D, A M I G H T Y
T R U N K M AY G R OW." - Aeschylus

At Fig Industries, we believe that one great idea
can change everything. And with hard work and
creativity, that idea can grow and bear beautiful fruit.
We also believe that everything we do should have a
positive impact on the community around us. That
is how Fig was started almost 12 years ago in my
hometown of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. I believed
that being a positive voice and bringing together
independent businesses for locals to rally around
could start to change perceptions and priorities.
I believed that this simple and powerful mission could
impact not only my community but other special
small cities as well. People would believe, as I do, that
independent businesses make up the backbone of our
community and our country. Our choices matter, our
neighbors matter, and if we invest in our community,
it will make all the difference.
For the past three years, Fig Industries has brought
you the best of Columbia. We have lifted up the
important work of non-profits and those community
members who have put their heart and soul into
making Columbia a better place. Our efforts have
been led by Columbia natives Janet Scouten and
Caroline Black. We are grateful for their work and
thank them as they move on to their next adventure.
They have planted the seed and now we are excited
to be collaborating on its growth with local Columbia
design and marketing studio ByFarr who will help

With growth comes change. As Fig grows, Columbia is
also growing; changing and evolving before our very
eyes. New restaurants, eateries, bars, and brew pubs are
opening all around us. In this, our food and drink issue,
we hope to introduce you to new places to experience,
to enjoy eating local, and to celebrate favorite meals
and new traditions.
Please join us on this journey and be inspired by the
thriving creative spirit in Columbia. We celebrate the
local entrepreneurs and visionaries who are working
together to make Columbia a more vibrant place to
live, work, eat, drink, and play.
