Our Mission

Turning eating into an experience through stress-free charcuterie spreads.

The Graze Craze Opportunity

While making charcuterie boards is a hobby for some, many consumers find the process time-consuming and intimidating. Graze Craze allows them to delight in boards that look just like the ones they favor online but taste even better. Customers love us for the quality of our products because they know that each Graze Craze charcuterie board is guaranteed to be fresh and delicious. They also value that they can take advantage of delivery options in each of the areas we serve—we have taken convenience to a new level! 

Graze Craze was founded by a U.S. Air Force veteran with experience in the food industry, who saw the demand for high-quality, convenient charcuterie boards. After successfully testing out her concept, she opened her initial locations and immediately built her customer base. 

Experts In Grazology™

In addition to fresh fruits, vegetables and fresh baked breads, Graze Craze specializes in fresh Salamis like sweet coppa, hot soppressata, Italian prosciutto, black pepper crusted salami, and premium cheeses such as hatch, green chili, red wine merlot, and smoked gouda. As a Graze Craze Grazologist™ you will be equipped to put together the best charcuterie boards and boxes for your walk-in customers, corporate accounts, or catering opportunities.
