My interview with Tyler Mathisen

posted by Joan Huwiler January 2, 2018

Media interviews are important and have really helped to spread the story and brand of Edible Arrangements. The interview I did with Tyler Mathisen of the “Nightly Business Report” was a thrill. My oldest daughter Somia was also part of the interview.  This is the full show.  My interview begins around the 22-minute mark.  Please watch and let me know what you think.

Giving Back to the Community

posted by Joan Huwiler December 28, 2017

This month, Edible Arrangement employees from the home office in Wallingford gave back to the local community.

The team collected hats, scarfs and mittens for Manna Inc. Food Pantry & Resource Center in Wallingford (left.)

 

The team also donated money to support the Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness ‘Be homeful’ campaign (center )  and others volunteered their time at the Connecticut Food Bank filling food boxes for hungry families (bottom left).

Proud so see the team spreading kindness and joy this holiday season.

The Value of Play

posted by Joan Huwiler October 23, 2017

A school playground and recess are vitally important to children for their fun and relaxation as well as for their good health and well-being.

That’s why I am so pleased to be part of a $240,000 funding effort that will bring the children at the Green Acres Elementary School in North Haven a new place to have fun. On Friday, we participated in a groundbreaking for the new playground. The new playground will replace one that has been at the school for more than 20 years.

The project is being funded entirely by donations from the Tariq Farid Foundation, Quinnipiac University, Green Acres PTA, the North Haven Education Fund and North Haven Rotary Club.

Supporting this playground improvement is a tangible way for my family and I to give back to the community that we call home.

Media interviews continue to help spread the story about Edible Arrangements. Being featured in segment about Connecticut companies took me back to where it began.  This has been way beyond what I ever dreamed. What a blessing.
