Welcome to your local fruit to suit

A message from Lisa

Lisa Smith

I gave up my full time job as finance manager of a manufacturing company in August 2010 and started my fruit to suit franchise covering Tyne and Wear a month later. I can honestly say it was the best decision I have ever made. I love managing my own business and having the flexibility to set my own timetable. I really enjoy working with children and appreciate seeing more of my own.

I am passionate about delivering the business and enterprise programs in primary schools as I believe the children benefit in so many ways. Gaining an exposure to all aspects of the business process at an early age gives them such a good grounding for later life – of course the healthy snacks are a delicious bonus too!

On a personal level, I am married to my very supportive husband Iain and we have 2 beautiful daughters Rebecca and Rachael who are at Primary school – one with a fruit to suit tuck shop of course! I have lived in South Tyneside all my life and I am proud to be supplying the local area with a product and service that carries such positive values.

Every single person I have spoken to about fruit to suit thinks it is a brilliant idea – it is!
