What does your business do & what sets you apart from others in your industry?

We offer gourmet olive oils, aged balsamic vinegars, and related products (pasta, olives, salts & rubs, sauces & salsas, mustards & jams, popcorn & nuts). Our products are sought by the home cook and the professional chef, the gourmet and the gourmand, corporate gift givers and individual customers seeking gifts for any special occasion.

What is "super" about your business?  Why is it special?

Our offerings are super tasty AND good for you. In fact, our motto is "Where healthy tastes great."

If you could pick a superpower, what would it be?

The ability to see into the future. That would be useful for the short term (holiday sales) and the longer term (end of pandemic)

What is one thing you have had to do to "pivot" to survive the Covid shutdown?

Bring in more packaging and mailing supplies; offer local delivery

Name one thing you LOVE about our Chamber?

Your dedication to helping small businesses weather this storm.

What's the weirdest thing you sell or offer? Or have there been any odd customer requests?

Matcha-infused sea salt. (We have it ... at least for now.)

Name three of your favorite local businesses (besides yourself, of course!)

Daley Bagel, Spilt Milk, Coastal Society
