HIGHLAND | What began as years of vacationing fun in small towns and local shops, soon became a dream for Lynn Gandolfi and her husband Al.
In March, their dream to open the doors to their own business-Tasty Olive Company, became a reality.
“We enjoyed heading to Wisconsin and tasting all of the unique oils and products and I knew I wanted to open up my own business and share some of these wonderful items you can’t find in your local grocery store,” said Lynn Gandolfi, Tasty Olive Company owner.
Tasty Olive Company, located in Porte de Leau Plaza, offers an array of products such as extra virgin olive oils, flavor infused olive oils, balsamic vinegars from Italy, sea salts, pepper jelly, spices, soups handmade pastas and bread mixes to name a few.
"We value the relationships we have with our customers,” added Gandolfi. “Our entire business is about creating friendships, healthy lifestyles, food choices and sharing knowledge.”
Tasty Olive offers over 20 oils and balsamic and handmade natural and organic pastas from Italy. Gandolfi proudly points out the fact that can go as far as telling customers where their oils come from.
Tasty Olive’s website-www.TastyOliveCompany.com offers favorite recipes from Chile, Italy, Spain, Tunisia, Greece and others.
