Brownies Delivered for 20 Fairytale Years with the Help of Kim Silva

Fairytale Brownies 20th Anniversary logo

This year we are continuing to celebrate our 20 year anniversary of delivering the very best in personal and corporate food gifts featuring gourmet Belgian chocolate brownies.  Each month Eileen and I have been sharing stories and memories of the past 20 years.  I thought for this post that I would share a story about our longest employed team member, Kim Silva.  Kim has been with Fairytale Brownies for over 18 years and she has been a key part of our success.  She came to us in 1994 right out of college at Arizona State University.  Kim was originally hired on a part time basis to help us run the farmers' markets that we were doing at the time.  Fairytale Brownies was originally conceived as a wholesale business, but we decided to participate in street fairs and farmers' markets to help with our sales.  We quickly found out that customers wanted us to ship brownie gifts for them to friends and relatives all over the country.  This is how we ended up in the business of selling mail...

Meritage Homes building sweet reputation with brownies

Meritage Homes, noted for building energy-efficient houses in seven states across the country, soon might be noted for building a sweet reputation with Realtors.

Real estate agents from California, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, Texas, Florda and North Carolina have been receiving Fairytale Brownies gourmet brownies as a thank-you food gift when working with Meritage homes.

The Meritage Homes Department of Appreciation believes that "Thanks!" just wouldn't have been sweet enough, so fudgy chocolate brownies should do the trick. This week's gift is a Sprite Dozen - 12 snack-sized brownies in a colorful treasure box with a custom message on the box.

Thank you, Meritage Homes, for believing in Fairytale!

Bringing Fudge Brownies to the people!

This last weekend I helped our Wholesale Department sample our delicious gourmet brownies at our local Arizona Costco Warehouses. We were at the Costco's in Chandler and Gilbert. It was really great to chat with customers who knew all about Fairytale Brownies and to hear how they send brownies to their friends and loved ones, and as corporate gifts. It was also nice to meet the folks who have never heard of Fairytale Brownies. It was awesome to see those who have never tasted our brownies before taste them for the first time! I know we made many many new brownie friends and fans over the last few days!

Below is a picture of Alyssa and I (yes, Costco food handlers policy is gloves and hairnets when sampling) having fun handing out our fudge brownie samples to Costco customers. If you missed us at Costco this weekend, we will be sampling at Whole Foods 7111 E. Mayo Blvd in Phoenix on August 13th from 11:00 am to 2:00pm. We'll be handing out more brownie samples and trying to get the word...Read More

It was a playful day at Fairytale Brownies

mafiaFairytale Brownies turned tropical today at our summer company party. Yes, it's still spring elsewhere in the country, but in Arizona the temperatures are in the 90s and 100s right now so it's SUMMER here.

Everyone was asked to wear a Hawaiian shirt or something "tropical" in keeping with our beach theme.

We all received leis, a beach ball, a squirt gun and a new Fairytale Brownies t-shirt with the FTB logo on the front, and "The Best Fairytales End in Chocolate" written on the back. 


david David was in charge of grilling the burgers and dogs. Don't you like his Hawaiian apron? It was a gift from our friends at KaBOOM! after they built a playground in Hawaii.

While we waited for the food to grill, we started our Tricycle Races.


The competition was fierce.


After several rounds of elimination, the two finalists were Michelle Kerpan in Accounting and Hunter Kreie in IT. The finish was very close, but Hunter was the winner.

upstairsWe also played a few rounds of Tug of War. Upstairs vs...Read More
