This high end gourmet wine & cheese retail store and café business opened in 2002. The 24×30-foot floor was clad in reclaimed hardwood, the walls a vibrant yellow with accents of burgundy red. The focal point at the center of the store was olive oil table. The heart of the store was the open cheese case. There was also a small chalkboard menu of sandwiches easily made from the selections in the case. It has grown a lot since then. The store is almost 6,000 square feet now. There are about 75 cheeses and 60 cured and deli meats. The lunch café serves a full menu daily and this business employs fourteen full-timers. Recently acquired roof top lounging area and office area for further business development and private parties including wine and food pairing events.

This business continues to grow from the passion and focus of its staff, both past and present, and from the feedback and intelligence of its customers. To offer customers the best in service and quality. To be a vital and responsible business — independently owned and operated — that is a viable alternative to huge, corporate groceries and that develops the unique character and economic advantages that independently owned businesses offer to the community.

Current owners are wanting to move abroad for personal reason, hence this exquisite acquisition opportunity. It is currently a semi-owner absentee business model and still with lots of potential for expansion. New owner can enjoy a well-established and constant flow of income. On the other hand, with the input of updated POS system, this business can grow to the new level and streamline ordering and purchasing information.
