A family firm that is trying something new to boost the business.
Evan Kirtses, dubbed by Cosmopolitan Magazine the hottest bachelor in Delaware in 2011, lives at upscale Residences at Justison Landing on the Wilmington Riverfront. Until last month, he drove to 20 minutes to Whole Foods in Glen Mills, Pa., whenever he needed fresh vegetables. So did some of his neighbors. Now, Kirtses walks a few blocks to Produce Express, his family’s newest business at 340 South Market St. While the Kirtseses don’t want to compare it to the Swedesboro, N.J.-based Produce Junction chain, the store they opened on March 8 has a somewhat similar mission: Deliver fresh fruits and vegetables at low prices.
