EVAN DELAHANTY, CEO, PEACEFUL FRUITS

Tel 330.356.8515
 
Our Shark Tank Connection:
Evan is President and owner of Peaceful Fruits, a local company in Barberton. While he was enlisted with the Peace Corp. in the South American nation of Suriname, he developed a desire to create fruit snack products that actually contained not only JUST FRUIT, but the same fruits the product is named for.
He started his business in his garage and kitchen and eventually got his product into Whole Foods. Now he is in stores such as Kroger and others.
 
He received to invitation to present of the Sharks on Shark Tank nearly two years ago. While he did not strike a deal at that time, the subsequent exposure exploded his national visibility and orders. He now has a factory employing nearly 2 dozen workers and is looking to vastly increase his orders to both retail stores and on line. Evan's story of success is a credit to him and the Barberton area... a true local business success.
