Learn About One Hour Parties Franchises
Ready. Set. Party!
One Hour Parties are designed to meet the demand for quick, creative and
affordable celebrations. Great for any event including work wing dings, kids
parties, social soirees or...just because.
Founded in July of 2001 by Leanne Mumm Pardo and Christopher Hughes, whose
combined experience encompasses strategic partnerships, marketing, brand and Web
development and public relations.
What Exactly Is A One Hour Party?
A One Hour Party is a party that is meant to be quick, fun, casual and
affordable. These parties are typically one hour but not limited to any
particular timeframe. Our parties feature snacks and desserts rather than large
outlays of food. Our parties are intended for groups of 24 or more although we
recently delivered a party for more than 1,200 guests at one company.
One Hour Parties distributorship offers the following party categories:
- Beverage Parties
- Dessert Parties
- Holiday Parties
- Theme Parties
- Ice Cream Parties
- Catered Services
What's So Special About The One Hour Parties Concept?
We have spent the last five years developing this untapped market niche. We call
this niche…casual corporate catering. We are the only company in the nation that
offers this concept.
Is This Unique Concept Protected?
Our company name is protected with a Federally Registered Trademark and we have
filed copyright on each of our unique party names, content and concept.
Do I Have To Know How To Cook Or Open A Commercial Kitchen?
No, our concept is more about party coordination and event planning rather than
cooking or running a commercial kitchen. That's a strategy we know you will
appreciate when considering the high overhead cost of operating and maintaining
a commercial kitchen.
What Do I Get For My Money?
You will get complete in-person training and the extensive One Hour Parties
Operations Manual. You'll also receive all the information necessary to set up
your business, marketing expertise to attract customers, consultation on
banking, printing and licenses/permits as well as newsletters, updated supplier
information, party industry trends, techniques and more.
Who Is The Customer?
There are a number of different types of customers for this product including:
corporations, individuals and other business enterprises. We show you how to get
them and keep them as customers. Corporations of all sizes have become very
creative over the past few years with regards to employee appreciation and
recognition events and One Hour Parties proves to be a perfect fit!
