Here at Edible Arrangements, we hold those who serve our great nation in very high regard, and are honored whenever a former member of the military decides to join our franchise and become one of our Fruit Experts. It pleases me to say that not only will we be having a serviceman opening up two stores very soon in the Seattle area, but he is also someone who has helped preserve the health and well-being of his fellow servicemen and servicewomen.
Serving in the United States Navy since the late 1990s, Kirk most recently worked as a Medical Services Corps Officer, supporting the medical and dental components of the Navy Reserve in both an administrative and technical capacity. Kirk worked closely with military physicians, dentists, nurses and allied health personnel for years, and upon leaving the Navy, decided it was time to obtain his goal of starting up his own business.
Kirk recently signed on to open a brand new store in Seattle, and plans to develop a second location in nearby Federal Way by the end of the year. I’m thrilled that he chose to go into business with us, and I wish this distinguished veteran great success in growing his new enterprise.
