Are You Searching For A Business Where You Can Party All The Time?
Competition among parents of small children seems to intensify every year. Which
child gets the best grades? Which children will be accepted to the exclusive
private school? Which child wears the nicest clothing? Which child is the next
great sport star?
And of course: Which child had the coolest birthday party?!
Children's birthday parties are big business - bowling alleys, arcades, pizza
places, and movie theaters have been the standard through the years. But there
is a growing desire to recapture the magical home birthday parties that many
parents remember from their youth. In addition, parents are increasingly
concerned about safety issues related to overseeing many young children in a
public place. However, parents are progressively busier today, and many do not
have the time or inclination to plan a traditional home party. Many parents are
also concerned about being able to plan a party that their child and guests will
thoroughly enjoy, while remaining sane!
Andy's Parties was founded to provide a new and exciting birthday party option
for parents who are eager to make their child's birthday a truly memorable event
(while at the same time, "out-doing the Joneses!"), by hosting a full-service
themed party. Andy's Parties are conducted in private homes, at recreation
centers, and at Andy's Parties store locations. Consequently, our parties
provide a safe and enjoyable environment where the parents can actually enjoy
the festivities! Our customers are families and corporations who are willing to
pay a premium price for our services. We primarily provide party services for
children ages 2-11, although we also plan and run parties for businesses and
Andy's Parties offers many different theme parties. The most popular include the
Spa, Princess, Superhero, and Safari Parties. We also offer special add-ons such
as piñatas, visits by costumed characters, customized invitations, and
professional entertainment services (magicians, balloon-twisters, etc.)
Andy's Parties has distinguished itself by offering a complete party solution -
we entirely plan, set-up, staff, and run the party. Our motto is "We do it all…
from set up to clean up" and we strive to provide the highest level of customer
service possible. We provide everything for the party, from food and beverages,
to cups and plates, to entertainment, to crafts…and we even clean up afterwards.
Parents do not have to lift a finger, not even to take pictures, unless they
want to. We even offer refreshments for the guests' parents and take out all of
the garbage when we leave! Parents appreciate our services so much that many of
our customers invite us back for subsequent parties or for a sibling's party.
They simply select a different theme (and sometimes the same one!) and they're
ready for a new Andy's Parties adventure.
