Here at PrintGlobe, we take pride in the relationships we build with our customers. Working on an account manager basis, our dedicated account managers don’t just assist their customers with one time transactions, but instead, they form lasting relationships, getting to know their customer’s business needs, desires, and often, their unique stories.
We’ve been working with customer Julie Fanning, Vice President of the O’Donnell Agency, for over a year, crafting one of a kind promotional pieces to assist with the company’s branding work. Thanks to our relationship with Julie, we’ve come to know a bit more about her family, and earned the business of our youngest customer – 8-year-old cookie baker and entrepreneur, Madeline Fanning of Madeline’s Munchies.
Madeline’s Munchies, a small cookie business run by Madeline and her parents, started thanks to a lost phone and a little girl’s desire to raise money to buy a new one. Excited to sell her cookies (an old family recipe), Madeline came up with her business name and a logo (with a little help from mom), drafted some ideas, and got to work. Starting small, Madeline sold her cookies at school and in her neighborhood, but it didn’t take long for her business to take off. Shortly after her endeavor began, Madeline received her first large scale order – an order of 800 cookies to be exact!
Wanting to give Madeline a promotional product of her own, Julie placed an order from her account manager for custom stickers displaying Madeline’s design, making Madeline the youngest customer we’ve seen yet! Madeline now uses these stickers to seal her cookie bags, leaving each lucky customer with a sweet promotional treat!
“The stickers have our Facebook address on them, so a bunch of people liked our page and now know how to reach us if they want more cookies,” says Julie. “(Madeline) wants to order t-shirts next for us to wear, so I’ll be contacting you for that soon!”
With cookie flavors like Chocolate Covered Strawberry, Chocolate Bananas Foster, Campfire Coconut S’mores, and Andes Coconut Chocolate Mint, there’s no wonder why Madeline’s business is quickly becoming such a success. She has raised plenty of money to buy a new phone, and Madeline’s Munchies is now registered as an official business, Madeline’s Munchies LLC. Her parents are now busy teaching Madeline the industry side of things, and working with a local coffee shop to sell her cookies on a regular basis. Meanwhile, Madeline is busy whipping up her delicious treats. “My favorite part is spending time with my dad baking cookies,” says Madeline. “Plus, he lets me lick the spoon!”
Oh, and as for Madeline’s favorite cookie: “Double Chocolately Chip! It’s my great grandpa’s recipe and the base for all of our cookies.”
