Balloon Distractions has now sent balloon artists into restaurants over 100,000 times, it took us just over a decade to reach that number.
What does it take to book 100,000 restaurant gigs? Over 4,000 people have been added into our entertainer orientation program since 2003, and these hard working folks filled gigs across four time zones, from Los Angeles to Philadelphia to Miami to Minneapolis.
We had to design an online scheduler to organize all those entertainers and clients, it cost over $80K to build.
We paid out well over $4 million in payroll and billed out over $5 million to our restaurant clients.
I personally burned through 4 vehicles and traveled to every corner of the United States, I’ve sold restaurants and trained people in at least 20 states and counting.
We estimate that our team has twisted about 10 million Qualatex balloons since 2003.
So what does the 100,000 number mean? It means that we have a profound understanding of our unique niche, and the experience to make this concept work anywhere, from Miami to Rochester NY.
You see, 100,000 is just the very beginning. We’re going to hit the “1 million gig” mark in the next decade, maybe sooner. We have a specific plan and we’re working that plan every single day.
We’ve had our share of critics, mostly folks who failed to grasp our business model….
…. the dogs will always bark, but the train is moving on.
