Background Information

An entrepreneurial aura has always radiated from the energetic and charming Ms. Juanita Carol Britton.  She is so motivated that she operates five ventures simultaneously.

As a child, her business acumen exceeded that of most adults.  Affectionately known as Busy Bee, she was a whiz kid. Long before franchising became popular, this 10-year old Detroiter spent her summers selling lemonade on the corner of her family home.  By the time she was 13, she farmed out the cookie-cutter operation to six neighborhood corners.  At 15, she became the business manager of a high school social club -- planning dances, trips and even concerts with several national acts, earning thousands throughout her high school years.  At 16, she was head cashier at her neighborhood McDonald’s and at 17, as an undergrad student of Political Science; Ms. Britton coordinated her first international trip to Seoul, South Korea as an exchange student.

Ms. Britton moved to Washington, DC, for graduate school and subsequently landed a competitive internship in the Reagan Administration.  She has held positions in the Federal and District of Columbia governments and later went on to assist on special assignments in the Bush and Clinton administrations. 

The popular East Coast, BZB Black Gift & Art Show is her brainchild.  This ‘Shop Til You Drop’ event will celebrate its 17th year during the 2007 Christmas holiday season.  With assistance from her mother and brother, Georgiann Austin and Donald Britton, and a host of employees, volunteers and loyal friends, she also operates the Anacostia Art Gallery & Boutique in Southeast Washington, DC; BZB International Tours, an educational, social, and recreational travel group; and her parent company, BZB Public Relations
and Marketing Consultants, coordinates special events and works with small businesses on marketing and building better consumer and community relationships. 

Ms. Britton is a partner in Paradies-BZB, DC, LLC,  an enterprise that operates retail stores such as Brooks Brothers, CNBC and PGA stores in the Washington metropolitan area airports.  She works closely with over 100 employees on customer service, team-building and community outreach projects.
