Two Maryborough businesses have demonstrated the benefits that working together can reap.
Bead Fusion’s Inge Long and Red House Bakery’s Garrity Townsing put their heads together and have found that instead of working against each other, it pays to work together.
The businesses have started offering joint birthday parties, with Inge dropping in to parties at the bakery’s new Red House Funhouse to do some beading.
The pair’s first joint venture was a seventh birthday party for twins Lydia and Demi Walker, and Inge says it went off with a bang.
“We first had the idea when Garrity came into my shop to organise a birthday party for herself, and we got talking and decided instead of fighting each other for business, it made more sense to join forces,” Inge said.
