Congratulations to Evan Delahanty, owner of Peaceful Fruits and HFLA’s latest loan recipient! We’re so excited to partner with Evan and join him on his business journey.
Peaceful Fruits is a startup company based in Akron that makes organic fruit strip snacks with acai. Evan launched Peaceful Fruits after his time with the Peace Corps where he lived and worked in the Amazon Rainforest. The acai in his snacks is grown and harvested by the people he worked with in the rainforest. These snacks come from the Amazon with love!
We’re especially excited because Evan recently appeared on “Shark Tank,” which gave his business a major boost! If you haven’t seen it yet, his episode will re-air this Friday, June 30, 2017 at 8 pm on ABC (that’s tonight!).
Evan plans to use his HFLA loan to help catch up on production after the sales boom he received from his initial shark tank airing. After his episode, his sales literally tripled! By having the funds available to complete all of these orders, he will be able to continue pushing forward with securing additional funding to take his business to the next level.
