Our guest speaker will be Robert Moehling of the famous fruit stand known as Robert Is Here.
A cornerstone venue for the Redland region, Robert Is Here features an amazing array of fresh produce, gourmet specialty food items, tropical milkshakes… and so much more.
This is the man who started one of the best and most famous tropical fruit stands in the world — Robert Is Here.
At six years old, Robert Moehling started out on the side of the road with a card table and a bunch of cucumbers.
Sales were disappointing on the first day, but this undetermined entrepreneur returned with a new marketing concept. His father helped him make two large signs so customers would know he had produce for sale. The signs read simply, “Robert Is Here.”
It worked. He sold all his cucumbers and launched a legacy business that spans six decades. Now, he’s a father and grandfather employing more than 55 part time and full time staff members, including Robert’s children and wife. You can still find him there at the fruit stand greeting people with a big friendly smile, offering tastes of fresh fruits and tropical delights and dispensing sage advice to locals and tourists from around the world.
Robert is famous for his fresh fruit milkshakes, his unique home-made condiments, his flavored honeys, his exotic produce and more.
Robert Moehling knows the Redland Homestead and farming region. Join us for a delightful presentation on his perspective and his memories of growing up in South Dade.
