Appeeling Fruit become so “appeeling” in 1991, initially, supplying apple slices as an industrial ingredient to bakeries that were looking for a fresh product opposed to the standard frozen or canned product. Let’s be honest, nothing beats fresh apples.

Owner Entrepreneur Steve Cygan began to visualize opportunities on the consumer level that would only come to, with the ability to provide a longer shelf life product.  Since then, Appealing Fruit has created various sized packages for individual, group, or wholesale needs expanding into other fruits.  Harnessing the demand of the fresh market industry has catapulted the market of fresh sliced apples into a new era. The fresh cut segment of the marketing is growing at a tremendous pace. This growth and excitement has come on a broad horizon of stages.  Appeeling Fruit is supplying products to school lunch programs, food distributors, re-packers, and retail institutions.  With this growth they invested in technology to increase productivity with the 504 loan they were able to purchase equipment with as little as 10%.
