My husband & I had the honor of representing fab'rik & Dana last night at the University of Georgia: Bulldog 100, Fastest Growing Bulldog Businesses Celebration. I too am a Georgia Bulldog, & having the opportunity to be in a room filled with accomplished Georgia alumni was such a great experience.
The keynote speaker for the evening, Pete Correll (class of '63) had us all laughing & reminiscing about those amazing years we each spent at the University -- the memories that bond us to the great city of Athens, Georgia -- regardless of how long ago we graduated. Each person's love for that city was undeniable last night: we all bleed red & black.
As the countdown of the top 100 Fastest Growing Bulldog Businesses commenced, I was literally stirring in my seat waiting on our name to be called... past the top 75, past the top 50, into the top 25: #24! Now, I know having known Dana for almost 7 years now that 22 is her lucky number & she would have been so excited for that, but 24?!? It is such an amazing testament of the hard work & dedication that has been put into this company as well as a prelude to what's to come for fab'rik in the future. As a company we couldn't be more excited for this honor & for being recognized among such a distinguished group of entrepreneurs!
