FIORE ARTISAN OLIVE OILS & VINEGARS TO RELOCATE WITHIN NEW HAMPSHIRE
Successful first high-season in New Hampshire leads regional source
for EVOO and balsamic vinegars to seek a stand-alone location
Wolfeboro, NH – November 15, 2017 – FIORE Artisan Olive Oils & Vinegars, the award-winning regional source for extra virgin olive oils and aged balsamic vinegars, today announced that after a successful first high-season as a store-within-a-store concept within New Hampshire, it will be seeking a standalone location to add to its existing locations in Maine: Bar Harbor, Rockland, Freeport, and Brunswick. As such, effective November 15, 2017, its tasting room within Wolfeboro-based Orazio’s Gourmet is closed.
FIORE has been on a steady growth track over the past eight years and has been evaluating additional New Hampshire locations for several years. “The FIORE brand is well-recognized in New England and our customer base welcomed our collaboration in Wolfeboro, leading to a great first high season in New Hampshire,” said Pat O’Brien, Director of Marketing at FIORE. “We are actively exploring options in the Lake Winnipesaukee region as well as other New Hampshire locations and will use this off season to identify our direction for spring of 2018.”
Through its locations along the Maine coast, FIORE provides area residents and the bustling visitor base with the opportunity to enjoy a selection of more than forty extra virgin olive oils from around the world and aged balsamic vinegars from Modena, Italy, in one store. Additionally, FIORE has developed an exclusive wholesale model that brings FIORE products to customers through hand-selected strategic partners around the region and the east coast. To ensure ultimate freshness, FIORE chases the crush, showcasing the highest quality cultivars from regions growing, harvesting and crushing olives each season.
“Our burgeoning wholesale program enables FIORE to expand our reach with selected partners offering a small array of products that they select for their particular markets,” O’Brien adds. “This enables our customers to buy FIORE products locally, in their areas, from their local purveyors.”
