Tuesday Tip : The House of Olives

This week, we're talking with Sandy of The House of Olives in Huntersville.  This is a wonderful store!  Actually, 'store' doesn't really cover it.  The first time I visited, I was welcomed quickly and kindly and shown some wonderful combinations.  The staff was very knowledgeable about their products and excited for me to try them.  Imagine finding a great restaurant, salon, etc. and you can't wait to tell your friends about it.
That was how it felt!   

Tell us about the House of Olives:

The House of Olives is the only boutique of its kind in the Charlotte area.  We offer over 32 varieties of first pressed single varietal and flavored Extra Virgin Olives Oils and flavored Balsamic Vinegars.  You can try everything before you buy to ensure that you are taking home the taste that best suits your palate.


How long have you been open?

We opened in Birkdale Village in October of 2010.


Why should people visit The House of Olives?

It is such a fun experience to visit our store.  The products are super delicious, and our educated staff will take you on a tasting journey that is both fun and educational.


What is your favorite part of your business?

Enjoying the excitement of our clients when they come back and share their fun stories of how they used our product.  We have novice cooks, professional chefs and everything in between.  People are just having a blast experimenting with new taste treats.  Our staff is always exchanging the stories that are shared....we love it!
