The FruitGuys set up shop in Seattle in the spring of 2015, when the cherry blossoms were blooming along the streets of the Emerald City.
Like the towering evergreens that thrive in this rainy Northwest metropolis, local enterprises often start off small but grow up to be giants—after all, this is where Starbucks, Amazon, and Boeing began. We’re thrilled to have put down roots here, and look forward to many years of bringing fresh fruit to the people whose work makes this city so spectacular.
To learn more about how to get fruit in your office, reach out to our PNW rep, Amanda , and we’ll take care of the rest.
Washington state has especially rich volcanic soil and plentiful water, making it one of the nation’s top producers of apples and pears, not to mention summer stone fruit like peaches, plums, and sweet cherries such as Bings, Vans, and the delicate, blushing Rainier (developed at Washington State University in the 1950s and named after the snowcapped mountain). As we build relationships with the farms that populate this verdant landscape, we can bring more and more high-quality fruit to our clients year-round—a lot of it local.
Besides procuring, packing, and delivering bountiful boxes of fruit, The FruitGuys is also committed to giving back to our community. In Seattle, we’ve partnered with a nonprofit that believe access to good food is central to well-being, a philosophy we stand behind. FareStart trains economically disadvantaged individuals in the culinary arts so they can break the cycle of poverty; we make weekly fruit donations to support their work
