Meet Bonnie Robinson & Catherine McMillan
Bonnie Robinson worked for decades in the education system, while her cousin Catherine McMillan worked in healthcare. But while Catherine, who was originally from Edmonton, was visiting Bonnie in Houston recently, the cousins noticed that the Tea Gallery with a Twist was for sale. They began talking about their mutual childhood dream of opening a business, and it wasn’t long before the two decided to partner together and buy the business. Catherine left Edmonton and moved to Houston to join her cousin, and they took over the restaurant and store in November of 2013. Bonnie says they couldn’t be happier with their decision.
Since taking over, they’ve changed the menu, adding new dishes and their own special flair, and their customers seem to love it. Bonnie, who has lived in Houston for over 20 years, is enjoying the opportunity to serve all of her friends and acquaintances in this brand new capacity. “People I’ve known for 20 years are now my customers!” She notes that Houston is a tight-knit community with friendly people who support one another, especially in times of need.
Being in business for themselves has been everything that Catherine and Bonnie dreamed it would be, and they are grateful for the opportunity to set their own goals and shape the business accordingly. Of course, owning a business means lots of work, so they keep very busy. But when they aren’t working they like to get out and enjoy the outdoors. Bonnie is especially fond of fishing, camping and running, and both Catherine and Bonnie are avid rug-hookers.
