The RC Willey Community is a project dedicated to recognizing and reaching out to the communities that support us.
Each RC Willey store is a proud neighbor to diverse people and businesses who make their local communities thrive, contributing services, goods, and expertise to the common good in order to help make our lives stimulating and meaningful. This project will showcase our neighbors who dedicate energy and creativity to this cause, focusing specifically on people who work to improve ours lives at home.
We know what it takes to start and build a small business: it was only 83 years ago that RC Willey started selling electric appliances door to door, and only 61 years ago when Willey's son-in-law, Bill Child, took over the tiny business from his ailing father-in-law. Since then, thousands of women and men have worked tirelessly to grow RC Willey into the robust company it is today. We want to honor our neighbors who — like RC, like Bill, like those who followed them — are working hard to develop the fabulous places we call home. We want to connect with you; we want to pay tribute to you; we want to thank you.
Today is our very first #rcwilleycommunity experience — a lesson from Leslie Fiet, owner of Mini's Cupcakes in Salt Lake City. Many of you who live in Salt Lake City will remember Leslie as the woman who saved baby Bella after she was kidnapped in a car theft earlier this year. Leslie was the perfect person to comfort that sweet girl, and we wanted to give back to Leslie for her good deed. So when we found out that her old bakery mixer had kicked the bucket, we brought her a new BOSCH Universal Plus mixer with all the bells and whistles. While we were at Mini’s, we asked Leslie to teach us some tricks of the treats, and she graciously obliged.
Here begins a series of cupcake and bread tutorials by Leslie, which will air on our YouTube channel throughout the summer. Please head on over to the RC Willey YouTube channel now and subscribe — we don’t want for you to miss a single video from Leslie, nor from our other #rcwilleycommunity members and stay tuned to the Room to Talk blog where other members will be guest blogging for us!
Now, without further ado, sit back and relax, and learn how to make the mothers in your life a beautiful and delicious cupcake centerpiece for Mother's Day.
