Have you ever been stumped on what gift to get someone for a special occasion? Send an Edible Arrangement! The Edible franchise is a retail and e-commerce provider and the largest franchisor of stores that offer fruit arrangements. The retail franchise was founded by Tariq Farid in 1999. He ran a flower shop as a teenager, and that is where Farid came up with the idea of introducing flower-style arrangements of fresh fruit. In addition to arrangements of fresh fruit, Edible also offers sweet treats, smoothies, chocolate-covered fruit, fruit salad, and more. Since the brand began franchising in 2000, it has expanded to more than 1,000 locations across North America. This is due to Edible's 24-hour e-commerce platform and inclusive business model. The ideal franchise owner is community-oriented, a strong communicator, can follow a proven system, and has a passion for the retail brand and fresh fruit arrangement franchisor. With strong success in North America, the brand is also looking to expand internationally, with territories available in Europe, Asia, and the Americas.
You will enjoy the support and training that comes with being a franchise owner with Edible. In terms of support and training, franchise owners can expect an initial training program that takes place at the franchise's corporate headquarters. While there, you will learn everything that you need to know about the running the business properly. This includes sales, marketing and advertising, and more. This training program takes place before your location's grand opening and is broken down into classroom and on-the-job instruction.
