Spreading joy with mail order brownies

Here is a true Fairytale from our customer, Rosa, in Kentucky:

Once Upon a Time...

I ordered three dozen brownies last week, all going in a different direction. One dozen for myself, one dozen for our daughter Michelle and one dozen for our adopted daughter Carly. Our post office had been closed for one hour last Saturday when I realized my brownies were inside the post office. I squatted down, looked inside my post office box, heard a voice in the back and bribed the postman with the promise of a brownie if he would let me have my package, which he did. Today, Carly send me a video of our granddaughter Callan (14 months old) crying for one more bite of a Fairytale Brownie! She gave her a bite, threw the wrapper in the trash and the baby stood by the trash can crying.

Fairytale Brownies Dozen

Then I emailed Rosa, "May I share this story of spreading joy to your family through brownie deliveries, brownie bribes, little ones wanting more?" and "How did you first hear about us?"

She said...

Eileen, Yes you may share...

The entrepreneurial dream behind our brownie gifts

order brownies from a small businessFairytale Brownies began like many businesses do. Before we were shipping brownie gifts and cookie baskets around the globe, we were just an entrepreneurial dream.  

In our case, childhood friends David Kravetz and Eileen Spitalny launched Fairytale Brownies in the fall of 1992. They baked late at night in a friend’s catering kitchen. With the support of family, friends, and a secret family recipe, they built the successful business that Fairytale Brownies is today.

Our success took hard work, perseverance, and at least a little bit of luck.

That’s why we were struck by the story of Valorie Mitts of Oak Park, Ill. In 2008, Valerie was forced to close the Lil’ Red Wagon Coffee House.

Fortunately, Valerie refused to give up her dream.

According to the Forest Park Patch, she reopened the Lil’ Red Wagon Coffee House in April of this year and business is booming. The coffee shop sells sandwiches, wraps, soups, and muffins, but the focus is on Valerie’s unique cookie creations. She’s...

Baking Gourmet Brownies, Cookies & Bars for the Holiday Season!

As I walked around the facility today, I noticed all the hustle and bustle happening that is all in preparation for the Holiday season - - which is almost upon us! For the last few months of the year, Fairytale Brownies brings on quite a few seasonal team members which include customer service team members, baking team members and shipping team members. When this influx of personnel happens, it gets me really pumped for the coming season. I also really enjoy watching these folks craft our decadent desserts. Brownie, cookie and bar baking is truly an art! Here are a few pics that were snapped in our baking kitchen and shipping warehouse with some of our regular, full-time team members and some of our seasonal team members too. 

Fairytale Brownies bakers making our moist, chewy Fairytale Cookies. We bake 6 flavors of these delicious gourmet cookies: Peanut Butter, Mint Chocolate, Caramel Pecan, Coconut Walnut, Double Chocolate and Toffee Chocolate Chip.

Brownies Delivered - Worldwide!

We love to hear our customers' feedback after they've eaten or shared a Fairytale fudge brownie, chewy cookie or buttery bar. This message came from Megan S.:

brownies delivered"My mom sent a big box of brownies for me to share with my office at Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan. We work such long hours that we really need a boost from time to time, and getting mail is the most exciting part of our day (good excitment- there is plenty of bad excitment). We were all SO happy to get these brownies! People can't stop talking about how wonderful they are, and its been very distracting... one of our paralegals threatened to fall asleep at his desk since he ate three in a row and was full and happy and wanted a nap. Thanks for the great brownies, and thanks for making the extra effort to ship them all the way to Afghanistan."

Soon after I asked her if we could print her comment, she replied with another one:

"People keep coming to my desk today to ask me if I have more. (I only have a few left out of my big box, so I...

Send Brownies to help "burn the midnight oil"

The summer months are huge for me as that's when I am tasked with planning and completing improvements to the brownies.com website. Starting in September, website traffic significantly increases because that's when our new Fall/Holiday catalogs drop in-home (if you're not on our mailing list, join here), and our new gift packaging and brownie/bar/cookie flavors become available. The new things happening this year are: New Fairytale Bar flavors: Lemon Blondie and Cinnamon Crumb, New Sparkling Towers, New Fairytale Towers, New Wish Box, New Celebrate The Season Band, and New Happy New Year Band. Click here for more info on our new products.

Aside of the new gifts becoming available, the marketing department brainstorms what kind of improvements we'd like to have for the website, and I have the summer months to manage those programming projects. Depending on the size of the project, I have several people that I work hand-in-hand with to get large functionality changes complete. I work...
