So, what inspired such a large empire?  Apparently a trip to Paris three years earlier.

I couldn’t get over seeing so many great things for cooking, the heavy pots and pans, white porcelain ovenware, country earthenware, great tools and professional knives,” Williams told the Washington Post in 2005.
