Fruit Obsession is a business that celebrates the special moments in life. We want to be a business that you can rely on to excite, impress, and dazzle your friends, family and colleagues. Our business is located in the heart of where we grew up and where our families live today - on the gorgeous shores of Georgian Bay and across the beautiful fields of Clearview Township, and the rolling hills of The Blue Mountains.
Our focus is to create a business that is unique to our area - a place where you can visit in person, or online, to get a special gift that you simply can't find anywhere else.
This is a place where friends, family and colleagues can support a local business and arrange a gift, to be hand-delivered to someone’s doorstep with ease and with confidence. We are thrilled to work together to create a local business that will craft unique and thoughtful gifts for any occasion.
Fruit Obsession is a business that treats employees with respect, not just with words but through actions as well.
Ours is a workplace that is inclusive, diverse, pays a fair living wage, includes vacation time, health benefits and where if we ask you to wear a goofy apron, we take care of that cost too!
