Just in case you missed our huge out-of-the-blue announcement last week, Amazing Grazing has secured a storefront in Apex, NC! We are still pinching ourselves and not quite sure we're not dreaming!
After putting plans on hold for a storefront location in Fuquay last summer, Greg and I were at peace and knew that the perfect place would come along. As our business model pivoted a little bit, so did our concept of a storefront/catering kitchen. As we grew, I knew I needed to find a kitchen that was ours to use 24/7. Ya'll, we have big plans (Lord willing) for 2023!
After planting a few seeds with my firstborn, Logan, about coming to work with me, he finally said yes! That was the second piece of the puzzle that we needed! Logan has an extensive culinary background and restaurant management experience. His ability to remain calm (which came in handy working 911 for a local sheriff's office for 5 years and will definitely come in handy working with mama) made him the perfect partner for Amazing Grazing! We are so excited to have join us March 1!!
Did I mention we've been taking care of my three-year-old grandson since mid-December? His mommy is serving in the US Navy and has had underways and trainings so we've been keeping this precious, strong-willed (wonder where he got that from?), very energetic sweetie pie. We're exhausted, EXHAUSTED. E.X.H.A.U.S.T.E.D.
And then the perfect sweetest little shop landed in our lap. Literally. With a fully equipped commercial kitchen. I reached out to a local charcuterie bossbabe about using/renting her kitchen on her off days. Three questions in she asked if I was interested in her storefront! I was like "Whaaaat??? Ummmmm....Yes!!!" That is literally how long I thought about it. I knew it was perfectly exactly what we needed, the location is primetime and with the plans for 2023, it gave us the presence we needed to say "Look out 2023. HERE WE COME!!!"
