Like many new start-ups, Chris Kohtz had a passion to do something really special. Inspired after a trip to England a few years ago – where over 700 different cheeses are produced – Chris put his energy into studying about the industry and connecting with like-minded cheese enthusiasts across the world.
His dream? To open a gourmet cheese shop where local residents would have the opportunity to taste the extraordinary flavors of cheeses from around the world, as well as from nearby farms.
He opened the doors on January 2, 2014 – literally a New Year’s business. Although the first week saw record cold temperatures, his shop had a constant stream of locals, curious to see what this new store had to offer.
With nearly 500 Facebook followers and several media calls, Chris is well on his way getting out the word. Please join us as we continue to follow his 1st-year journey of The Wedge and Wheel!
