Welcome Basket began delivering baskets to new residents in 2008. Rachel Wilson the founder of Welcome Basket grew up in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney. When she met her husband they decided to make the move to leafy Turramurra. Rachel found it difficult to settle into the new area not knowing where to go for goods and services and spent most of her time travelling back to the East. Tired of the commute she began to try out services in her local area. The idea of helping other new residents both locally and from overseas make this transition seemed like a good idea. In 2017 Emma Jones became a joint director of the Welcome Basket. Emma was running her own Marketing Company (Vital Support) offering a range of marketing services. An initial chance meeting saw a friendly coffee turn into lunch which then turned into “shall we join our businesses together so we can offer our clients a more extensive marketing service?”. 2018 brings Welcome Basket into it’s 10th year. Our mission is to encourage new residents to shop locally.
