    Johnson Bryce was developed in 1991

    This was out of Frito Lay’s effort to do business with minority-owned suppliers. That is when the Johnson family was introduced to the Bryce family and a joint venture began.  Robert Johnson and his daughter Rhonda Johnson became history makers by leading the first minority-owned flexible packaging corporation.  The idea was that a joint venture between a minority entrepreneur and an established company would result in a stable company that could start up quickly.
