Mrs. Fields® is Turning 35 this Weekend

Mrs. Fields® 35th Anniversary Hot Spots and Free Cookie Giveaways!

Broomfield, CO (PRWEB) August 16, 2012 - This weekend marks the 35th anniversary of Mrs. Fields, an American success story of the sweetest kind. In 1977, after meeting with several different banks (who first devoured her cookies and then turned her down for a business loan), young mother and founder Debbi Fields persisted and finally achieved her dream of opening her own store on August 18 in Palo Alto, California.

During a quiet first day of business, Debbi took a batch of fresh cookies outside and walked up and down the boardwalk, handing out warm samples and leading a steady stream of happy customers back to her door. She learned something important that first day—this would be a business of selling smiles.

Thirty-five years later, the tradition of selling smiles continues although on a much larger scale. Today Mrs. Fields is an internationally recognized brand with over 325 franchised stores in 23 countries, as well as a successful gift catalog featuring online gifting (, a delicious grocery product and successful licensing division.

As a tribute to their humble beginnings, Mrs. Fields is celebrating their 35th anniversary this weekend by handing out nearly ten thousand free cookies at five locations in four different cities around the country. The locations were chosen based on longstanding loyal customer bases, as a way to give back and thank customers for decades of business and smiles.

Mrs. Fields fans are encouraged to stop by, enjoy a free cookie, and share a smile at any one of five “hot spots” Friday and Saturday:
