Success Stories

Fiesta Time Inc.

Fiesta Time Inc. is a family business that started seven years ago in Brighton, Colorado. The Jurado family opened it services with only ten tables and seventy chairs, and since then has grown to be a driving force in the party rental industry. Fiesta Time is now much more than just tables and chairs, offering a whole repertoire of frame tents, pole tents, linens, dance floors, and sound systems.

Having a strong foundation is essential for any obstacle confronted in life, especially in business. For it is that very same foundation that follows you through your business life-time and the Small Business Development Center is exactly that. Since the opening of Fiesta Time Inc. in 2003, the SBDC has been there to walk Fiesta Time through all the paper work of registering the business, sales tax license, legal consulting, and even networking within the community.

The Jurado family’s success can be attributed through their hard work over the years. But if you were to ask them to whom their success is owed, they will simply answer the grace of God. It is their belief in God that has really shaped their great customer service, treating each customer with the respect they are entitled to, and seeing much more than a dollar sign on their forehead.

“Going the extra mile” is more than just a coined phrase used at Fiesta Time Inc. it’s an action that every customer receives. Whether it is carrying the party equipment to the customer’s backyard, or even cleaning up the next morning. This is something that is scarcely seen by party rental companies.
