Searching for a juicy franchise opportunity? Selling 100-percent natural frozen fruit bars as a Fruitfull franchisee may be perfect for you. Happy & Healthy Products Inc., the franchisor of Fruitfull, helps you set up Fruitfull freezers in sites you select; you're responsible for maintaining the sites.
As a franchisee, you'll establish wholesale accounts in health-food stores, gourmet grocery stores or anywhere else frozen fruit bars can tempt customers.

Appealing to health-conscious consumers, many varieties are fat-free, and all contain five or fewer grams of fat.
