WICHITA — The party is moving to Delano – literally and figuratively.
Kimberly and Scott Daley are consolidating their Table Guys and Chocolate Fountain Event Rentals under one roof at the northeast corner of Douglas and Osage. For the first time, they’ll also offer their own party space for customers to use.
“We have all of the equipment to have a really great party, and now we’ll have some space in our own place to have one,” Kimberly Daley says.
The Daleys started their rental business with garage sale rental supplies, which they keep in a Derby warehouse, in April 2011. In 2012, they added table and chair rentals and then purchased the fountain business in August.
With the fountain purchase, they took over the business’ 900 square feet at 5424 E. Central.
“It’s just not very effective for us right now,” Kimberly Daley says of the “very small” space.
“Our showroom right now is extremely small.”
The new space is 4,400 square feet.
“We so need it,” Daley says. “Just the showroom alone … is bigger than our entire store here.”
Currently, the showroom includes fountains, tables, chairs, chair covers, linens, wedding centerpieces and garage sale rental items.
“Definitely we’ll have the room to expand on our wedding and party rental items,” Daley says.
That could include arches, new styles of linens and more fountains, including some specialty ones.
Daley says business is “fantastic.” She thinks it’s because of quality products at reasonable prices combined with taking care of customers.
“We offer free local delivery,” Daley says. She says that includes weekends and evenings at no extra charge.
With the new location, she says customers can pick up items for small orders that may not qualify for delivery.
“It’s going to give people the option,” Daley says. “It’ll be nice for that.”
She says some of the company’s inventory will remain in Derby “because we do a lot of business in Derby.”
Daley says the business will open by June 1 at the latest.
Sometime later in the summer, Daley plans to open the event space, which she says she’s looking forward to adding.
“It just makes sense.”
