OUR STORY

Alt text here

Forrest Jackson, CEO and Bob Jackson, Founder

Our story begins in 1983 in Dallas, Texas with a retail pottery warehouse selling handmade and machine-made Italian pottery. We soon relocated and opened a full-scale retail garden center serving North Texas. Like many of our wholesale customers, we began selling plants, gift items, select outdoor furniture, and more. As appreciation for our pottery grew, we separated the wholesale from the retail garden center and formed Jackson Pottery (wholesale). Over 30 years later, Jackson Pottery continues to offer “Best in Class” pottery and planters from all over the world, including our own small batch manufactured line, Jackson Cast Stone.

We aim to become the preferred pottery and planter company in the United States, but it all starts with you. Our team is committed to your success and seeing you win every day. In addition to our nationwide customer base, we test our products at the retail level in our own store to get immediate feedback on colors, styles, and trends. We admit that this is an unfair advantage over our competitors. We like that, and you will too. Bring bold, fresh innovations to the market for your own repeat customers by choosing Jackson Pottery.

Every company tends to look like its founder. Growing up on an East Texas farm, Bob grew up selling fresh produce and developed a love for customer service and sales. That enjoyment shines through at our retail store, Jacksons Home and Garden, where Bob still takes an active role in the business over 30 years later. If you are ever in the Dallas area, stop by to enjoy a one-of-a-kind experience with us and spend a few minutes with Bob. He is always excited to meet our wholesale customers in person and thank you for your business.

We invest in our carefully selected teams so that they, as well as our customers, can have winning careers.
