One of the most frequent answers we get when we ask franchisees and prospective franchisees how they first heard about Edible Arrangements is one of the simplest: they received an arrangement as a gift. And that is the case with Gurpaul, who recently signed an agreement to open stores in Elmhurst and Howard Beach in the borough of Queens, in New York City. Gurpaul is no stranger to franchising: he currently owns five cell phone stores, and has been in the cell phone business since 2000. Prior to that, Gurpaul worked as an inventory specialist for major department stores. When he received his arrangement, he loved the concept, and investigated franchise opportunities. His customer service experience in the cell phone business and inventory skills will serve him well at Edible Arrangements. Superior customer service coupled with our beautiful and delicious products come together to give our customers the total “Edible Arrangements Experience” that is the cornerstone of success for an Edible Arrangements location. Gurpaul is well positioned to use his franchise business background to develop a successful Edible Arrangements business enterprise.
