Justin's story

Justin owns Mister Fruit Cup, which he describes as the only “gourmet” fruit cup business offering healthy fast food and snack choices presented creatively. All his life, Justin has tried to eat healthily and has incorporated fruit cups into his diet. Adding his creative skills, Justin opened his business almost two years ago to benefit his community and is currently searching for a part-time employee. Before hiring, Justin needed money to fund operations and marketing. After a trip to his credit union, Justin was referred to Accion Texas Inc. for the opportunity to borrow at an immensely lower interest rate. He says the loan will allow him to buy necessary tools to market and produce his dream. From his South American tropical cup, which is filled with tropical fruits, to the mélange of chocolate-drizzled fruit and berries nestled in a waffle bowl, Justin’s creations aren’t just unusual. They are art. Offering a menu of seasonal fruit and an array of toppings, Justin’s fruit cups are made to order and may be accompanied by one of his many fruit drinks. Whether it is dessert or a healthy snack you’re craving, Justin’s menu has enough to satisfy any appetite. Check out his website to view the current items on his menu: http://misterfruitcup.com/
