Chiquita shares how she needed to raise money for her daughter cheering activities that led her to start Appleheadz. In this interview, Chiquita explains her journey, faith, networking and the loving support of her family/team.
In the near future, I foresee Appleheadz continue to expand their presence nationally and open a location on Beale Street.
Oh if you are wondering, Yes the candy apples are on point !

Parties, Wedding Favors, Client/Employee Gifts, Church Events, Family Reunions, Sports Banquets, Sweets for Board Meetings, Special Treats for Your Special Someone, and FUNDRAISERS…WE DO IT ALL WITH LOVE!
The story began in 2013 with a fundraiser to support my daughter’s competitive cheerleading expenses. If there is such a thing as love at first taste, it was found as soon as these apples begin to make their way across the city.
Our first apples were made on Sunday, November 10, 2013 with the intention of making apples for only 2 weeks. Well as you can see 1 year later our very first store is open for business and we have expanded well beyond candy apples.
We started selling our apples in the Memphis, TN area and now we’re shipping across the United States! The love for my children and desire to see them happy created an opportunity to change our lives. When we say “Made With Love” we really mean it!
