What does your organization do?
We provide a convenient, artful, and affordable solution to feeding small or large crowds that also creates opportunities for social gathering. Our hand-crafted personal and picnic boxes, platters, and grazing tables are perfect for every day or making an impression at all social events, including a quiet date, birthday party, business luncheon, or large wedding reception.

What's the most important thing you want people to know about your organization?
We want every customer, whether they purchase a simple lunch carryout, an elaborate platter, or a decorative staging table, to feel that they have a team dedicated to simplifying and magnifying their customer service experience.

Tell us about something new and exciting your organization is doing.
Though we just opened our doors for business in late October, we've been a sponsor of the Teacher of the Month program at Z95.1 FM since the beginning of this school year.

What services or products do you offer?
We sell a full range of charcuterie boards, from full grazing tables to individual boards and cups. For catered events, we also offer staging services that enhance the presentation of the boards for a family's guests and relatives, or a company's clients.

What makes your organization stand out?
We specialize in preparing aesthetically appealing boards that are affordable and appetizing conversation starters.

What else do you want us to know?
We are a family-owned business. Sile (pronounced Sheila) is President of the company and operations manager. Jim, her husband and co-owner, manages the financing and marketing strategies for the company.

What Chamber benefits do you appreciate as a member?
We're new members, so the panoply of benefits isn't as apparent to us as to longer-standing members. As a startup, though, we particularly value the networking opportunities the Chamber affords. And we appreciate that the Chamber acts as a voice on behalf of small business owners like us to policymakers in Washington and Richmond.
