it’s been bugging you too you have been wondering how Aunt Fannie’s FlyPunch! started, Christine Esposito of Happi Magazine just wrote an excellent article about our start and some of our recent growth.
The basic version is that Mat Franken’s neighborhood was once so overcome with swarms of fruit flies that he decided to do something about it. He never thought about selling it until friends pressured him to do after they used his special “fly punch” and couldn’t believe the results. Mat decided to do some research and some work on the formulation… then quit his day job, and has been
buzzing on the passionate pursuit of eradicating fruit flies ever since.
“I came to realize that there wasn’t a product up and down food chain that would get rid of it… in agriculture or food manufacturing or bars. And I knew that there wasn’t anything in retail for consumer use.”
– Mat Franken, Aunt Fannie’s CEO
