Greenville, S.C. (May 2015) – Aunt Fannie’s, Inc. (, developer and manufacturer of the natural, non-toxic, easy, fast-acting fruit fly solution, FlyPunch!™, continues to attract top level talent from across the business spectrum for its expanding Board of Directors. The immediate success of and increasing demand for FlyPunch! is indicative of the consumer trend for household solutions that are earth-friendly and people-safe.

In response to the company’s outstanding growth, Ms. Monica Nassif has chosen to join the Aunt Fannie’s Board of Directors. Ms. Nassif’s experience as a cleaning aisle revolutionary aligns extremely well with Aunt Fannie’s as she founded and launched Mrs. Meyers Clean Day and Caldrea, companies that combine aromatherapy and earth-friendly sensibility for household products. “Aunt Fannie’s offers consumers a product that improves their home cleanliness, helps reduce the risk of food-borne illness and imparts a solution that doesn’t degrade the planet.” explains Nassif, “Fruit flies can be a real issue for households, and I’m excited about helping Aunt Fannie’s solve such a common problem.”

Speaking from personal experience, CEO of Aunt Fannie’s, Mat Franken, formulated FlyPunch! after a swarm of fruit flies invaded his entire Florida neighborhood. “Fruit flies are not just a nuisance at home, but are a known vector for germs and food borne illnesses,” says Franken, “What made me want to start Aunt Fannie’s is the fact that the current market solutions for pest control are as equally if not more harmful to people and the planet as the flies themselves. Monica’s involvement will add a scope of expertise and direct hands-on knowledge that will help us along our expanding stages of growth.”
