October 19, 2009 -- One Hour Parties, a premiere party planning franchisor headquartered in Seattle, WA, has entered the San Francisco Bay Area. The company plans on building a stronghold in the region prior to bringing on local franchisees.
One Hour Parties is currently fortifying their concept in the region by offering a limited selection of their parties to top local corporations coordinated by their team in Seattle. The company has already coordinated and executed events in the Bay Area for corporations including Intuit, GMR Works (General Motors), Salesforce.com, Wescom Credit Union and Pac Bell, to name a few.
“We have always thought the progressive and creative style of the Bay Area was the perfect spot for One Hour Parties. By building brand recognition here prior to launching a franchise in the market will help establish a customer base for a franchisee to inherit,” said Leanne Mumm Pardo, Co-Founder of One Hour Parties.
One Hour Parties Named “Hot New Franchise”
One Hour Parties currently operates two franchises in the Seattle area and another in San Diego. The company was recently named a “Hot New Franchise” by Entrepreneur Magazine and attributes its newfound notoriety to their creative concept and low franchise fee. “We started this company out of my basement," said Pardo. “And we want to empower others to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams while keeping their overhead low and their start-up costs to a minimum. That’s a huge bonus in today’s economy.”
Home-Based Franchise Opportunity
Pardo also sees a striking parallel between her customers and her franchisees: “Our corporate customers want to work with an event planner that is savvy, nimble, and keeps both eyes on the bottom line. Those are the same attributes that I look for in a franchisee.” One Hour Parties has developed an extensive hands-on training program for their franchisees, fully-tested products and services and created a blueprint for marketing the franchise to earn and retain customers. “We have all the tools in place, now we need a highly motivated individual or group to take on the exciting potential that One Hour Parties has to offer in the Bay Area,” said Pardo.
