Edible: Celebrates 10 Sweet Years in Clear Lake
Most people are familiar with the national brand, Edible (formerly Edible Arrangements), but the individually owned and operated Clear Lake location at 13914 State Hwy. 3, Ste. 200 in Webster) is full of surprises as they celebrate their 10th year in business. Of course, sending the delicious bouquets made of all-natural, fresh fruit dipped in gourmet chocolate is the tastiest way to say, “Get Well Soon,” or “Happy Birthday,” or “I Love You,” but Edible also offers a great way to treat yourself, with fresh fruit snacks ready to go! That’s right! Edible offers fresh fruit smoothies. Perfectly blended fruit snacks made from scratch, to order, using fresh fruit brought in daily. Customers can enjoy smoothies like the popular Pineapple-Kale; or the ever-famous Strawberry, Pineapple, Banana; cozy up with a Mocha Almond Banana smoothie or even create your own smoothie. But that’s not all; Edible also offers fresh fruit salads and chocolate-dipped fruit bites served in a cone shaped cup. Plenty of surprises will be added to their already beloved menu in the next few months – chocolate chip surprises!
“We want people to treat themselves not only when they are celebrating the big moments, but with everyday celebrations of goodness in life, like unwinding after a long day at work,” said owner Pablo Patron. For example, Edible offers FREE pineapple pops (dipped fruit on a stick) to any child who brings in a report card with an A+ (or equivalent).
Edible in Clear Lake is known for creating unforgettable delights made with the freshest fruits and real, gourmet chocolate; they even offer same-day delivery or pick up. The amazingly creative arrangements are a terrific addition for any occasion, such as the football arrangement with chocolate covered apples shaped like footballs, or the new gender-reveal centerpieces where the chocolate covered strawberries are lined with either a pink or blue layer (depending on whether it’s a boy or a girl). Edible offers several catering options for year-round occasions as well as for holiday parties and the family Thanksgiving feast.
With the uniquely creative containers, Edible can customize prints around the arrangement base. The possibilities are endless. For example, real estate agents who want to celebrate new homeowners can have the picture of the home printed on the banner and have chocolate covered pineapples shaped into the numbers of the address. But whatever the occasion, Patron invites customers to stop by in person to place the order or call the store personally (281-488-7777) to talk to one of their experienced employees to ensure your arrangement is the best it can be.
“We have a beautiful store front. We love it when our customers come visit and meet the team,” said Patron. Edible's fruit expert team has been serving the Clear Lake area for up to seven years. “It is because of this experience, our staff can help customers by creating the perfect centerpiece for their party or the perfect arrangement for their loved one.”
The Edible brand is celebrating 20 years in business with more than 1,000 locations nation-wide, however, the staff at the Highway 3 store prides themselves on their local community involvement. They regularly celebrate their neighbors with locally made treats and gifts at events such as Yoga in The Park with Bay Area Yoga Collective, Epicurean Evening with the Chamber of Commerce at NASA and several other local events.
“Ten years is easier said than done!” said Patron. “We average around 10,000 orders every year. We are very proud to have been a part of over 100,000 celebrations with our delicious products in the past decade alone!”
