The three New Yorkers behind Chloe's Soft Serve Fruit CoTM are health-conscious individuals, each with a busy, demanding lifestyle. They have had a lot of fun developing Soft Serve Fruit. Chloe's Soft Serve Fruit CoTM (originally Simply Peeled) brand has been a labor of love, time and imagination, as the team set out to create a delicious and innovative product, and a comfortable and original store. They are extremely proud that together they have created a new way to eat fruit, and a captivating setting in which it can be enjoyed.
Living healthy has always been a priority for Chloe. She is a workout addict and persistent calorie counter. As a mother of 3, Chloe was constantly searching for foods that pleased her children's palates while providing them with essential nutrients. She finally found the perfect solution in co-creating Chloe's Soft Serve Fruit Co. Blending her experiences as a mother, and an active New Yorker, Chloe sought to develop a brand that would indulge parents and kids both in aesthetics and taste. Her kids now beg her for Soft Serve Fruit and are constantly making suggestions for new varieties! Prior to starting SSFC, Chloe was an Assistant NYC District Attorney and Stribling real estate broker.
