Edible Arrangements: For the perfect gift, for any occasion – big or small


The calendar may say that we are in the middle of fall, but it is always SUMMER at Edible Arrangements in Cranston. With their fresh fruit bouquets, thirst-quenching smoothies and individual snacks, Edible Arrangements brings a burst of sunshine here ~ all year long.

Many fans of Edible Arrangements know this popular national chain for its special occasion fruit bouquets. They know of its convenient door to door delivery of arrangements of ripe and juicy pineapples, strawberries, bananas, apple, melons and grapes ~ a kaleidoscope of color and summery freshness. Each bouquet or box of fruit is created to bring a message of gratitude, affection or congratulations and makes the perfect gift for any memorable life event.

What many may not know about Edible Arrangements is that they are far more than an online service! This popular national brand has locally owned stores that are open to serve local residents – whether as a place to stop for a mid-afternoon taste of healthy refreshment or for that one-of-a-kind gift for a loved one.

The Edible Arrangements located in Garden City is the fourth of five stores owned by 25- year Rhode Island residents, Ted and Deborah Kostisin. It follows their flagship store in Providence, which they opened in 2003, as well as stores in Warren, Attleboro and Smithfield. Deborah Kostisin was a pioneer in the state when she opened Rhode Island’s first store. When her husband Ted, a 20 year veteran in the restaurant business, came on board, they found the perfect market for this novel service. Now, 11 years and 5 stores later, they are excited to share all the joy that Edible Arrangements offers.

Others who are familiar with Edible Arrangements may also not be aware that there is always a cooler of ready-made fruit bouquets available at the store for those last minute gifts or sweet treats. There are individual snacks as well as colorful arrangements of fruit which are prepared fresh on the premises every day. No need to order these in advance; you can either take one from the cooler or one of the friendly “fruit experts” here will customize one for your event.

Whether you are in need of a refreshing smoothie (including their super-healthy Kale & fruit or Chocolate Indulgence smoothies), a bouquet of rainbow-bright fruit, or a plump chocolate-dipped strawberry, then make Edible Arrangements in Cranston your next stop today.
