Capitalizing on the trend of upscale home baked goods, Fields began the company with one store in California in 1977 and, by 1984, had expanded to 160 stores in the United States and four international locations, generating $45 million a year in revenues. Fields’ innovative computer network system enabled her to stay in close contact with all sales outlets.
