AMHERST — A store specializing in pickup and delivery of charcuterie boards and boxes, featuring a variety of fruits, vegetables, meats, cheeses and gourmet sweets, opened in the North Square at the Mill District on Monday.
Graze Craze, which prepares healthy lunches, office catering and other special events for customers, will have its first location in Massachusetts at 83 Cowls Road.
The franchise location is owned by Jessica Lavallee, who said she is excited to have a creative outlet in the community she has lived in for 25 years.
“I am my happiest when I’m making food to entertain and engage with others,” Lavallee said.
Each product at Graze Craze is designed, hand-crafted and curated by what the company calls grazologists.
Graze Craze offers free local delivery, and the storefront will be open for pick-ups from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day except Sunday, when it closes at 3 p.m.
The company was founded in Oklahoma by U.S. Air Force veteran Kerry Sylvester.
