Time to make your Edible Arrangements
Colorado Springs natives Jeffrey and Courtney Thornton have just opened a franchise operation for Edible Arrangements on the north side of town, specializing in creating fruit designs filled with fresh, hand-sculpted fruit including strawberries, pineapple, grapes, oranges, cantaloupe and honeydew. A nationwide chain with more than 500 outlets, Edible Arrangements had sales of $25.8 million in 2005. Stores in business for at least 12 months averaged $453,825 in sales revenue based on arrangements that range in price from $32 to $200. The Thorntons' store is at 1234 E. Woodmen Road, suite 110, just west of Academy Boulevard.
