This last Saturday, Fairytale Brownies
held it's 2009 holiday party at the historic Stockyards Restaurant in Phoenix, AZ. It was a bittersweet party for the company; we were all so appreciative to be there. Because of the economic climate, it has been difficult for folks to buy brownies and as a result it has been a strenuous few years for the company. Especially with business and consumer gift giving taking a huge industry hit. During 2009, we went through very rigorous cost cutting measures and even tabled new products slated Holiday 2009/Spring 2010 debut. In addition to our cost cutting measures, we opted to forgo a company holiday party or any holiday related bonuses.
With the great planning and foresight of co-owners David and Eileen, Fairytale Brownies was able to recover from 2008, and turn 2009 into a profitable year for the company. To celebrate, we resurrected our 2009 holiday party plans and celebrated in style! We all had an fantastic time at this great venue. The meal was rockin' and the entertainment was great. We brought in Magician Michael Paul
who amazed us with his card and coin tricks. As I mentioned before, it was a bittersweet celebration for us - we are just so grateful to work for such passionate people who are dedicated to making the world a sweeter place though gourmet brownies! Thank you David & Eileen! Check out some of the pictures from our party below!
