Tropical Salesmen Meets Big Apple Weather

To sell tropical produce, it makes sense to have tropical salesmen. Take Franky and Yoli for example, Franky originally from Miami, and Yoli originally from Colombia have grown up in a tropical environment all their life, including a diet with tropical fruits and vegetables. However, they may not be the perfect match for NY weather. As Franky always mentions, "I'd rather be sweating than having to wear a sweater". Nonetheless, that did not stop the sales duo from taking a bite into the Big Apple and making the Congo presence known.

Take a look at the photos from their trip in late 2022 to the NY produce Show:

Katzman Produce, Rene De la Cruz from Keyfoods, Kelvin from S. Katzman Produce and Omar from Seabras Market.

And of course, Yoli and Franky and to take one last stroll through the city before going back to the sunshine state.
