Welcome New Employees to the Team with Brownie Gifts

Starting a new job is an exciting venture, but for some, it can be a stressful experience. Some of our business buyers hope to ease those new job jitters by sending employees "welcome to the team" brownie gifts.

brownie giftsI received a Fairytale Dozen the week before I started working for Fairytale Brownies. I was so surprised by the brownie delivery - I felt beyond special! When my first day finally arrived, I felt as though I was already a part of the team.

Credit unions, banks, employment agencies, gourmet brownie companies. Some places of busniess just know how to make a new employee feel a part of the team before they even start working there! Why not be one of them?

Operations Summit Experiences A Taste of Pure Enchantment!

Each year small and large busineses alike attend the Operations Summit Conference; the only conference exclusively about Direct-to-Customer operations & fulfillment. This years conference was held in Indianapolis, IN from April 22 - 24, and Fairytale Brownies co-founder David Kravetz attended. Not only did David attend, but he also was the speaker at a few sessions regarding the challenges of running a small business in today's economic climate, in addition to hosting a round table lunch which discussed legacy software management. 

Of course you can't discuss the in's and out's of a gourmet brownie business without having plenty of samples to pass around for the guests. Following David's speach, each attendee received an 8-Sprite gift favor to enjoy. Reviews from the operations summit were very positive. Here's an example: "The Operations Summit was a very good experience. I was able to talk to vendors and discuss possible solutions for issues we were experiencing. Also, the breakfast...

Everyone knows that understanding how to do one's job is important in keeping that job. But at Fairytale Brownies, we believe we become more efficient when we understand how others do their jobs within the company. So we shadow train.

Most recently, shipping team members donned white aprons and hair nets, and entered the kitchen to bake gourmet brownies.

Let's face it, we all have birthday gifts to buy for that "hard to buy for person"; we try to get creative and find something unique that will always be remembered, right? Well, stop racking your brain and start thinking Fairytale Brownies. That's exactly what I did when I had an out of town relative visiting Arizona while on a business trip and wanted to get together for dinner. My cousin Dave just happened to mention that it was his birthday and I had to act quickly!

I didn't have to think long before I decided to buy a gift of Fairytale Brownies; I chose a Birthday 8-Sprite gift favor and it was the perfect gift for Dave as I know he loves chocolate! It's a one size fits all kind of gift that everyone will enjoy!

5 Reasons to Gift Gourmet Brownies

Gift Gourmet Brownies

It's never been easier to send gourmet brownies to your friends, family and loved ones. Looking for a reason to gift gourmet brownies? Here are 5 to get you started: 

  1. Health Benefits of Chocolate: According to women's health mag, chocolate is now considered a "superfood!" Cacao, the bean chocolate is made from is packed with healthy chemicals like flavonoids and theobromine, which has disease-killing components. Stick to chocolate with at least 70% cacao, you'll reap the benefits. Fairytale Brownies are baked with Callebaut Dark Belgian Chocolate (pure - unsweetened). 
  2. Evoke childhood memories and sensations: According to howstuffworks, smells and tastes can bring on a flood of memories that influence people moods. Because we encounter most new smells and tastes in our youth, they often call up childhood memories. Childhood memories shape our lives, and reliving the  loving sensation of eating Mom's brownies after school is one that I want to relive as many times as possible.
  3. Send a Thank...

Not only is April 1st April Fool’s Day, but it's also International Have Fun at Work Day. I think it may be because people have fun fooling their coworkers that day, but none the less, it is a day dedicated to enjoying work.  We got started a little bit early on this holiday here at Fairytale Brownies. On March 26, we had our companywide Spring Fling Event!   

At Fairytale Brownies, it is important that we enjoy what we do. We send brownies and other treats worldwide, and bring smiles to people’s faces. How could we not have fun doing that?!  But as an extra treat for our team, we enjoyed a lunch from the Grilled Cheese Truck, and we did some group painting with the Social Canvas!

Even if your work doesn’t do anything extra special for International Have Fun at Work Day, you can still make it fun. Surprise coworkers with some gourmet brownies from Fairytale Brownies! You will be amazed at how something as small as a brownie can make a big impact. There is just something special about...
