The real-life inspiration for the Bluth Frozen Banana Stand was a chocolate-chip cookie business that showrunner Mitch Hurwitz and his brother Michael started in 1976, when they were 13 and 15, respectively. With the help of their father, Mark, the boys rented and renovated a former taco stand on Newport Beach, California (the eventual setting for "Arrested Development") and called their business "The Chipyard." In 2013, Hurwitz told interviewer Terry Gross that the cookie business paid for his and his brother's college educations. The business continues to this day (as of 2013) with one physical location in Boston and a nationwide online/mail order component. See more
