March 2013 – Appeeling Fruit was established in 1991 as a supplier of fresh sliced apples to the bakery trade. Today the company serves both market segments, through schools, retailers, and the food service industry within a 250-mile radius of Reading, PA. The company purchased a 24,000 SF property in Dauberville, PA saving in annual rent payments based on their previous lease. The transaction allowed for Appeeling Fruit to expand their production line and improve existing work flows. VIST Financial in conjunction with Seedcopa provided financing for the project, which created roughly 80 jobs in the past three years.
