One Hour Parties was founded in 2001 and is a privately held corporation based in Seattle, Washington. By demand, One Hour Parties has expanded by way of franchising, to meet the needs of customers in most metropolitan markets.
Entrepreneurs Leanne Mumm Pardo and Christopher Hughes started One Hour Parties to fulfill their dream of building an exciting consumer brand that was innovative, fun and alive. The company strives to offer party and event products and services that transport customers to their “happy place” – whether it’s building an ice cream sundae or devouring a cupcake – at any hour of the day.
The company quickly found a niche for their creative celebrations and responded with a line of parties and products perfectly suited for the office and social scene. The founders were recently counted among the “Top 25 Innovators and Entrepreneurs” by Seattle Magazine. They have also been featured live, as party/lifestyles experts, on San Diego Living (FOX News affiliate), and act as editorial contributors on the entertaining Web site celebrations.com.
