Our family started Freggies. We live in Burien, Washington and we have tried all sorts of produce services in the past. We built a website and invited some friends to begin using it. Since then, we have grown Freggies into a well known name and source for fresh, raw, organic produce in the Greater Seattle area. We invite you to learn more about bringing Freggies to your community through the Freggies Franchise business. Here how...
What should I do?
Become a Freggies Franchise Owner! It is great fun, helps you build relationships within your community and enables you to lead and create income while enjoying the benefits of being at home with your family!
What is a Franchise Partner?
A Franchise Partner is a local business owner who shares the coolness of Freggies with their neighbors, friends and community. The responsibility of the Franchise Partner includes:
- Building a group of customers who regularly order from Freggies
- Work with our logistics team to get the produce delivered. Note: New regions may require more involvement with logistics from the Franchise Partner
- Answering questions about Freggies
- Share recipes or other healthful resources
What is the process for delivering the produce?
We take care of all the logistics including web site maintenance, ordering, compiling orders and vendor coordination. Our logistics locations receive or pick-up the produce in bulk, sort the produce based on the pull sheets that are printed off the Freggies system, label the box and delivery based on the customer delivery instructions.
How do you make money?
We apply a mark-up to all the produce that is ordered. We make sure this mark up is at or below the competitive pricing for the region at retail locations.
How much does it cost to start?
Here are the expenses that you should plan for when joining Freggies as a Franchise Partner:
- Initial franchise fee: $15,000

Why are we doing this?
We are a young family and we realize that in our culture we need to create various streams of income to survive. We also know that you already know a bunch of people that will use the Freggies service and this will help get the revenue flowing for you. We know we have the best produce available and the most advanced on-line system to manage the orders! We also want to make it as easy as possible (easier than the drive thru) for others to eat health and enjoy Garden of Eden food! When your kids try the organic red peppers, they will be hooked like candy!

Still not sure? Ask a couple of your friends to check out the Freggies web site and give you some feedback in terms of their interest in ordering fresh, organic produce at wholesale prices with free delivery for their family. Be careful though, they may get the local Franchise before you!
