I have tremendous respect and admiration for those who take that momentous step to becoming multi-unit owners. Having been there myself, I understand the risks and rewards involved. And for some, it takes a certain amount of proven success and stability before they feel the time is right to turn that business into an enterprise. One such Fruit Expert would be Jeanne, who has patiently developed and nurtured the Orchard Park, New York Edible Arrangements location since 2006. And now, Jeanne is proud to take that step, opening her second store in Buffalo.
A former national sales director for AT&T, she received one of our beautiful arrangements as a gift on her 50th birthday, and that’s all it took to pique her interest. Jeanne liked the concept as it fit her healthy lifestyle and the trend of eating and living healthier that America’s been following.
After years of working for a large corporation, Jeanne was looking for a more intimate, personal business opportunity—something she could grow with. Many prospective owners in similar situations have expressed this sentiment, and it gives me a thrill to be able to offer exactly that to them.
