The Edible Arrangements® concept was launched in East Haven, CT in 1999. The company began franchising in 2001 in Massachusetts with additional stores quickly following in Connecticut, Georgia and New Jersey. Edible Arrangements® is currently growing internationally, with stores throughout United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, United Kingdom and U.A.E.
In 2006 Edible Arrangements® launched Frutation®, a new concept that will take fresh fruit products to the next level. Frutation® is an all natural fruit station with a product collection that targets consumers who want a fresh and delicious treat on the go. The menu includes a variety of items such as Fruithy (smoothies), fresh juices, fruit salads, spiced fruit salads, fruit sundaes and dipped fruit. The concept provides a unique and healthy option and is built upon the reputation of Edible Arrangements® which is known for product quality, novelty and excellent service.
