(Nashville, TN) – The largest direct-to-consumer seller of fresh peaches, The Peach Truck, today announced an investment partnership with International Farming.
As The Peach Truck celebrates ten years of business with a milestone of 100 million peaches sold, the partnership with International Farming will catapult the company to even greater success as its popularity has spurred unprecedented demand.
Founded by Stephen and Jessica Rose in 2012, The Peach Truck currently sells mouth-watering peaches nationwide via their Home Delivery service, locally at more than 60 Nashville-based booths, and regionally in over 25 states during their annual summer tour, “The Peach Truck Tour,” which begins this month. The brand also sells year-round pantry items, juicy winter satsuma oranges and their best-selling cookbook, The Peach Truck Cookbook.
“Ten years ago, we began selling peaches out of the back of our 1964 Jeep Gladiator pickup truck. Little did we know the immense joy we would find in sharing over 100 million peaches across the country with incredible customers. As we look ahead to our company’s future, we are confident the extensive agricultural experience of International Farming will help us achieve our mission of changing the way people eat by making high quality produce accessible to everyone all over the country,” said Stephen and Jessica Rose.
“We commend Stephen and Jessica for their incredible success in the first 10 years of their business, reaching customers in nearly 30 states and offering them the freshest peaches. One hundred million peaches sold is an incredible milestone and we are excited to work alongside them in bringing fresh fruit and pantry items to an even greater marketplace,” added Charlie McNairy, CEO of International Farming.
Footprint Capital and Bass, Berry & Sims represented The Peach Truck in the investment partnership. Brooks Pierce represented International Farming.
Pre-orders for the 2022 The Peach Truck summer tour are available now, with tour stops starting June 14th and continuing through early August.
