The Fruit Brothers story began in a little but much loved fruit shop in Beaumont Street Hamilton NSW.
Bobby the owner of the award winning, Hamilton Fruit Market took pride in sourcing and buying Newcastle’s freshest Aussie produce for locals around the Hunter. His customer base grew rapidly as people soon got wind that this young local man was not only a Fruitologist that loved to chat but also one that was kind, extremely knowledgeable and had a genuine love of fresh fruit & veg.
Daniel could see that this little shop could be something even bigger and together the boys had a dream of building an empire. A conversation around the dinner table of wanting to do more sparked the beginning of a new venture and a new relationship for the boys that extended from being brother-in-laws and best mates to business partners. This is where the story of Fruit Brothers began.
Fruit Brothers was officially established in 2013. The online delivery service first started out the back of the small fruit market in Hamilton but soon the shop became too small for Fruit Brothers’ quick growth. The boys saw that people loved the convenience of online home delivery therefore they made the decision to close the shop front and move to a much larger location with state of the art facilities and machinery. This further then developed to more advanced technology including the development of the wholesale ordering app and most recently the transition to the new website.
The growth of Fruit Brothers has been built from sacrifice, customer service, hard work, and a love for what they do. They are always looking for new and innovative ideas to keep them a step above the rest. Every order delivered from Fruit Brothers is packed with love and passion.
The growth of Fruit Brothers has allowed the team to expand. Fruit Brothers now have a large team who help deliver the freshest Aussie produce throughout the Hunter, Port Stephens and surrounds.
The commitment the boys have made to hard work, excellence, innovation and positive customer relationships is the backbone of the business today.
