Purple Tree Organic Açai Blends: Tucson’s Sweetest Healthy Food Truck

Andre Newman, co-owner of Purple Tree Organic Açai Blends, and daughter Savan Newman joined Karla on this week’s Thrive Tucson. Since 2014 Purple Tree has served healthy açai bowls, fresh juice, ice cream, coffee, and smoothies. If you’ve been to any community events in Tucson over the past couple of years, odds are that you’ve seen their signature bright purple truck. Andre and Savan talk about what it’s like to own a food truck, how social media has helped their business stay connected with the community, and more.
