My name is David Kravetz and I am the co-founder of Fairytale Brownies. Eileen Spitalny and I began Fairytale Brownies in 1992 with little more than a family recipe and a wonderful partnership. From my earliest childhood I can remember the smell of fresh-baked brownies in our kitchen, and the shear joy I experienced sneaking that first bite when they came out of the oven.
Eileen and I met in kindergarten and have been friends ever since. We've shared more brownie snacks than I can possibly remember. In the beginning we sold our gourmet brownies at street fairs and farmers' markets. All the winter visitors in Phoenix kept asking us to ship the brownie gifts back home to friends and family. And before we knew it, a mail-order business was born.
At Fairytale Brownies we have the most incredible team of talented, energetic, and dedicated people. It has been a true joy watching them grow personally and professionally over these many years. In this blog I plan to share some of the stories and experiences that make this such an exciting and wonderful place to work. Thanks for reading!
