More than 100 Fishbowl employees in Utah take one day off each year to leave the office and go forth to serve the local community. We call it the Fishbowl Day of Service. And this year marks the 8th annual Fishbowl Day of Service.(more…)
Bryan Byrge encouraged everyone to “Live Big.” He lived by those words, and even though he’s no longer with us, we honor his memory by participating in the Live Big Challenge.
This year’s Live Big Challenge will take place on Saturday, August 22, 2015.
Those that are not interested in biking at all are welcome to come from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. There will be plenty of music, food trucks, and activities for kids. A Memorial Walk around the field will be at noon followed by a raffle and auction.
Also, come meet James (The Iron Cowboy) Lawrence and listen to his story of achieving the impossible challenge of completing 50 Iron Man challenges in all 50 states in 50 days in his quest to uplift and inspire. This is the perfect story of how to Live Big!
The organizers of this event have something special in store for cyclists. Not only will there be a nice, flat 20-mile course and a 40-mile somewhat mountainous course, but this year there is going to be a 101-mile Epic Loop! That last one will definitely live up to its name.
All of these races will begin at the Orem Cemetery Field at approximately 1200 North 800 East in Orem, Utah.(more…)
Fishbowl loves to serve. Every year we devote one day to getting out and serving our local community. We call it our Fishbowl Day of Service.
This Year’s Project
For this year’s project, we will be traveling to Cascade Springs near Sundance and Heber City, Utah, to assist the Forest Service in cleaning out a plant called watercress from the ponds and other areas of the park. We will also do some repair work on park pathways.
Fishbowl’s Day of Service usually takes place from late July to early September, but this year we have moved it up to Friday, June 5.(more…)
According to a recent Utah Business article, entitled “Follow the Leader,” Fishbowl has a “crazy” leadership style that goes against the grain of traditional corporate structures. And that’s perfectly fine with us.
Some of the non-traditional practices that define Fishbowl’s management style include:(more…)

This past weekend, more than a dozen Fishbowl employees participated in a huge relay bike race that went all the way from Salt Lake City in northern Utah down to St. George at the southwest corner of Utah. The race is appropriately called the Salt to Saint Relay.
Utah isn’t exactly known for its flat terrain, and this 425-mile race has a 20,000-foot increase in elevation. It takes a special kind of person to want to take on a challenge like that.(more…)

Fishbowl’s employees are out of the office today serving, just like we do every year. Today is the Fishbowl Day of Service, which is a special time for all of us to leave our usual jobs to go out and help people in our community.
We apologize if this causes any inconveniences to our wonderful customers. We just feel that it’s important to give back to people in need and who have given so much to us.
Today we are at the Central Utah Veterans Home in Payson, Utah, offering a listening ear and helping hands. It’s not as much physical labor as we’ve done in the past, but it is still important work to be with these people who have sacrificed a great deal for their country.
