We had the good fortune of connecting with Bryan + Roxi Delgado and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Bryan + Roxi, how do you think about risk?
When we think about risk taking we think about all the investments we have made. We have grown from photo-booth rentals to dallas rentals in general. We never imagined we would be renting out marquees or creating props for our clients. Its thanks to those risks we have taken that we are now making balloon decor for some of the biggest companies in dallas. Including Dior, Facebook, and Choctaw. We came from working a 9-5 job in corporate america to building a company we can one day consider a well known design + rental company.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
We’d love to hear what sets you apart from others, what you are most proud of or excited about. I think as a business owner I am very proud of being on the first page of google through my SEO firm. It makes me excited that I have the ability through the tools we use to generate more income by a simple google search.
How did you get to where you are today business-wise. Was it easy? If not, how did you overcome the challenges? What are the lessons you’ve learned along the way. What do you want the world to know about you or your brand and story?
Getting to where I am now was not easy. I went to UTD for a few semesters for business and dropped out and decided to start my own business. School did teach me a lot but it did not prepare me for a lot of things that I was not prepared for. I had no idea how photo-booths worked. As profitable as they are they are not easy to work with. We have the best of the best when it comes to equipment so not alot of vendors have the same products which in turn makes it hard to find solutions on google. It was a lot of trial and error. It was even harder coming into an industry where alot of vendors are already established and have connections that I did not have. I had to throw myself out there. Do free events to promote my brand, take events that were very discounted because nobody knew who my company was. Thats where a good business mentor comes in. Josh is someone who pushed me to other levels I did not think I could go to, I learned that having a mentor is always a great thing. I want the world to know that when you book us you book quality. Even our employees are kind and trust worthy people.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would like to shoutout my fiance, Roxann. She is the founder and creator of Party with Roxi
She is one of the hardest working people I know and it is thanks to her that I have seen exponential growth in DFW Flower and we have gone from just flower wall rentals to creating props, balloons and more.
