Description

Fruigees was founded by two cousins, David and Josh, in Los Angeles. They developed the recipe for Fruigees in their grandparents' kitchen and soon began selling the fruit snacks in squeeze packs at farmers markets throughout LA. It wasn't long before they moved on to local natural stores and eventually major national retailers like Meijer, Kroger, Jewel-Osco, and Wegman's. In less than 11 months, Fruigees has gone from a boutique item to one available in 1,400+ locations across the US, all through grass-roots efforts and campaigns.

Located in Los Angeles, Fruigees is looking for an intern to support social media efforts, conduct research on emerging trends, develop relationships with influencers, and engage with consumers via samplings and events. A start-up with grass-roots origins is looking for an intern with the same initiative. The focus is on marketing but opportunities to learn about all facets of starting, running, and growing a company within the food space is available. This is an ongoing position with flexible hours but requires a strong commitment with a passion for creativity and design.
