The former Wallingford home of Edible Arrangements, the maker and seller of fresh fruit arrangements that relocated its headquarters to Atlanta in 2018, has been listed for sale.

The 34,556-square-foot office building at 95 Barnes Road was listed in October, according to CoStar.

There is no asking price.

The office building is currently owned by SKF Barnes LLC, whose principal is TF Edible Holdings LLC, state records show. TF Edible has a business address based in Atlanta, Georgia, where Edible Arrangements is now headquartered.

TF Edible originally purchased the office building in 2006 for $3.1 million, town records show.

Edible Arrangements was founded by well-known Connecticut entrepreneur Tariq Farid, who left his CEO post in 2018 to focus on growing Edible Brands, the franchiser’s parent company that includes technology, supply-chain and several other businesses.

Shortly after that, Edible Arrangements named a new chief executive — former Tropical Smoothie Cafe CEO Mike Rotondo — and moved its headquarters to Atlanta.

In 2019, Farid announced he was pivoting into the booming CBD (cannabidiol) business, forming the Incredible Edibles brand, which sells plant-based and CBD products, and has been based in the former Edible Arrangements office in Wallingford. It’s not clear if Incredible Edibles still has a presence in the Wallingford property.

The company didn’t respond to a request for comment. Incredible Edibles did open one of its first stores in Glastonbury earlier this year.

The Barnes Road property was built in 1986, sits on 4.89 acres and has 160 parking spaces.

Winstanley Enterprises formerly owned the building, records show.
