Hosting Tree-Ripe Citrus Co. at Your Business
Unlike the normal food distribution process which takes a great deal of time to get fruit to market, our premium produce is taken directly from the farm by truck and brought to tens of thousands of customers at pre-arranged host locations in Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan and Minnesota.
Customers are informed of our visit in advance via our website, mail, email, and social media. In this way, our customers can make plans ahead of time to meet us. Our truck visits for 1-1/2 hours, and we make one or two visits to all of our locations with each variety of fruit we offer. In that way we can make our tremendous fruit available to a greater number of people while it is in-season. Customers can buy however much they would like, right off the truck at over 140 locations!
The key to our excited and eager following of customers is in continuing to bring the freshest, highest-quality fruit available, in bulk packaging and at very competitive prices, to convenient and friendly local business locations such as yours.
We have worked with a wide variety of wonderful host businesses since 1990 in a symbiotic manner, often drawing hundreds of loyal customers to each venue. Our visits do not interfere with your normal business operations, and we always tidy up after ourselves. Also, we encourage our customers to patronize the local hosts that are kind enough to allow us to park there. Folks are very appreciative of our hosts for making their parking area available to us for a short time each season.
But beyond the benefit of bringing potential customers to your business, our hosts receive 2 complimentary boxes of fruit or a rent payment of $35. We always obtain all necessary permits in order to sell legally, and are fully insured. Because many communities require confirmation before issuing a seller’s permit, we must ask for written permission from the property owner to locate there. We work with businesses of every type, and some of our current host locations include: Menards, Farm & Fleet, Ace Hardware, True Value, Memorial Mall, Rapids Mall, K-Mart, Goodwill, A&W, Blue Bay Family Restaurant, Viking Lanes, King Pin Bowl, and many more.
We appreciate the opportunity to work with you and your business!
