What an honor that Edible Arrangements has been named to Inc. Magazine’s “10 Promising Franchises for 2011”! I feel genuinely privileged to be able to work with the fine people who make Edible Arrangements work so well for so many. Our amazing franchisees have turned this concept into the popular holiday and everyday products their customers want, and by doing such a great job making customers happy every day, they have made Edible Arrangements a truly successful franchise! Of course, I also want to recognize a hard-working corporate staff that does so much to support our franchisees on a daily basis – with the technical assistance, marketing materials and operational excellence that enable them to run their stores seamlessly. Thanks also to Inc. Magazine for their recognition of our franchise, and congratulations to the other franchises recognized by Inc this year. It is truly an honor to be acknowledged this way, and a tribute to the exceptional people in our organization who make it work seven days a week! Here’s what Inc. Magazine has to say about Edible Arrangements:(http://www.inc.com/ss/10-most-promising-franchises-2011#5)
“Edible Arrangements, as its name implies, sells hand-sculpted fresh-fruit arrangements. The company, which began franchising back in 2001, has grown remarkably well over the last 10 years. In fact, it recently signed its 1,000th new store franchise agreement. In 2010, Edible Arrangements opened 84 stores in the U.S., and plans to open several more stores—from Massachusetts to Mumbai—in the next several months. ‘We started franchising in 2001 and the continuous growth of Edible Arrangements has been very exciting,’ said founder and CEO Tariq Farid, in a statement. ‘Our proven franchise system, healthful high-quality products, and our franchisees are the keys to our success.’”
