Located in Dilworth, NC
Established in 2018

After many years of dreaming and planning, MERE’S became a reality on August 31st, 2018. I was excited to introduce the Charlotte area to a cheese and wine boutique that channels the personality of European-style fromageries.

MERE’S is a celebration of an overall passion for wine, cheese, and people. Our venue is a place to come together and connect over a dynamic and palatable selection of wine, cheese, and charcuterie. We love to customize boards and educate through our offerings. Always diversifying our selections both in the cooler and along the wall of wines, we want you to have the ultimate experience. Create the Buzz.

Queen City Crunch:
Located in Charlotte, NC
Founded in 2021

Stay at home mom turned entrepreneur… here’s how it all began!
Katie and Sean Cooper live in Charlotte, NC with their daughter and began Queen City Crunch in early 2021.

For many years prior Katies mom, Judy, made cajun pretzels for every event. From Christmas gifts, to birthday parties and gatherings, and even in Katie and Seans wedding gift bags for guests, the pretzels were always around! They took on like wildfire and soon everyone we knew was asking where to buy them. With Katies extra time at home (2020 Pandemic) and love for being in the kitchen and Seans pretzel DNA due to his Philadelphia blood, Queen City Crunch was born!

Cloister Honey:
Located in Charlotte, NC
Founded in 2007

It all started with a Christmas gift. It was 2007 and Cloister Honey founders Joanne de la Rionda and Randall York were working in the finance and banking industry. Joanne thought a honey bee hive would make the perfect hobby for husband Randall, a science and environmental enthusiast.

Shortly after receiving two hives from Brushy Mountain Bee Farm and classes from Mecklenburg County Bee Keepers Association for Christmas, Randall became a bonafide "bee nerd." Fortunately for them, the bee market did much better than banking the next few years. So well in fact, that Joanne and Randall quit their day jobs and started splitting up the hives, multiplying them more and more each year.

With all that honey came lots of opportunities for delicious recipes. Joanne started to create and experiment in their kitchen with multiple spices, styles, textures, and infusions. Her culinary creations led them to receive top awards from Southern Living, Our State Magazine, and Charlotte Magazine and extend partnerships to retailers like William Sonoma, Whole Foods, Bloomingdales, Saks Fifth Avenue, Dean & DeLuca, and more. When Joanne and Randall aren't attending gourmet food markets and tradeshows, they're in Charlotte running Cloister Honey and sister concept, Great River Hemp Co.

Joanne & Randall welcome you to the hive, where life is sweet!

Pour Olive:
Located in Dilworth, NC
Established in 2012

While in Boone, NC one autumn weekend, we stumbled upon a similar shoppe and walked out with more oil than we ever thought we needed. And we loved it. We started thinking to ourselves, “Charlotte NEEDS something like this”. Our passion for good oil exploded almost immediately.

Doug, having worked in the food industry for years and me (Sophie), a new stay at home mom, looked for the right place for nearly two years. When we finally found our Dilworth spot, it just felt right and we knew that we needed to make it happen. Bonus: it’s right in our neighborhood. We can walk to our “shoppe around the corner” and look forward to being a neighborhood mainstay.
