Hey good for him, best of luck, but these gift basket franchises don't do well in the long term. Too much markup, poor value. Too much greed and money going to franchisors' pockets instead of product.

Reminds me of the ZOOTS franchise chain, and KABLOOM, most of which have closed their stores in the area. With franchising, the parent company makes most of the money.

Incredible, people can always come up with something negative or cynical to say. I was reading this and thought "hey good for that guy, he saw an opportunity and went for it" then I click over here on the comments and its a bunch of trolls with nasty comments (except Mike from Leominster).

I hope the guy makes a million dollars next year!
love the place

I found the quality of the fruit well worth the price, it was fresh and tasty. We've received one as a gift, and brought another to Thanksgiving dinner. The one we brought at Thanksgiving as a centerpiece was gone before dinner started. It survived a trip to Vermont and was well received there, since they don't have Edible Arragements stores nearby.

This is what the USA is all about. Work hard, take a few risks, put in the hours, reap the benefits. Small business is the backbone of the country. The very best of luck to you........hope it makes you filthy rich!!

Everyone wants the city to be like other well to do communities such as the ones on the North and South shores. The other communities that are not depressed have businesses such as this kind. This business has been around for years and is already established. If you feel they are expensive than don't go there. But there are private non-franchised businesses such as these selling their arrangements for 2-3 times the price. Everyone wants to see business growth in the city so what is the problem? Maybe everyone wants to keep the prices like that of a dollar store and if that is the case than the city will never become a prosperous community and remain a depressed old defunct mill city.

They have great arrangements and I find these healthier to send than candy and more useful than flowers.
