We offer the best selection among all competitors and the choices we have are proven and produce results for your sales. Our prices are some of the best in the industry for variety and quality of fruit.
Typically, your group should mark up a box of fruit from $7-10 dollars. We can provide you with our thoughts and it is recommended to talk with us before you start selling your fruit especially if this is the first time. We will tell you if you are too high or even too low. We want you to maximize your sales without scaring away your customers.
Contact you local newspapers along with your local radio stations.
A lot of organizations already have presence on the web with their Facebook pages, Instagram and Twitter feeds and also your school web sites !
Don’t forget about the free sales brochures we can provide to you as well.
We also have for you your own web page for showcasing the products you are selling and costs. Free of charge. Also starting this year, we will be working with all groups setting up messaging to contact their regular customers. We are very excited about this. This will be a very important step for your group to embrace this year with covid-19 interfering with face to face sales.
