EA NJAX Grand OpeningEdible Arrangements®, the company that delivers smiles with artistically designed fresh fruit bouquets and chocolate dipped fruit, is now open in North Jacksonville at 731 Duval Station Road, next to Publix. The newest Edible Arrangements store serves North Jacksonville, Arlington, Fernandina, Amelia Island, Yulee and Callahan, and joins four other Jacksonville locations. Each is independently owned and operated.

Edible Arrangements are fresh fruit bouquets made with hand-sculpted pineapple, cantaloupe, honeydew, strawberries, grapes, apples and oranges.  No preservatives or sweeteners are ever used.  Arrangements featuring watermelon, kiwi and mango are offered seasonally. Chocolate dipped apples, bananas, strawberries and pineapples are available by the box or may be added to most bouquets. Arrangements are available in a variety of designs, sizes and seasonal themes, and start at $35. Dipped fruit boxes start at $16.

The North Jacksonville store is the second location owned by the family partnership of Steve and Trish Kapustka of Arlington, and Natalie Sims of Gainesville. The members opened their first Edible Arrangements store in Gainesville, in January 2008.

“We are excited to open just in time for Easter, Administrative Professionals Week and Mother’s Day, three of the busiest holidays for centerpieces and gifting,” said Trish Kapustka. “We are also pleased to serve areas of Northeast Florida that haven’t had a nearby Edible Arrangements store.”

The store is open seven days a week with same day pick up or delivery available. Call 904-696-8855, order online at or visit the Duval Station store across from First Coast High School.
