A Heartfelt Farewell: Graze Craze Centennial’s Journey Ends Amid Economic Challenges

A Heartfelt Farewell: Graze Craze Centennial's Journey Ends Amid Economic Challenges

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the closure of Graze Craze Centennial, effective June 30th, 2024. While this decision has been incredibly difficult, it reflects the realities facing many small businesses today. Despite our successes and the incredible support from our community, we are unable to continue operating due to rising labor costs, supply chain challenges, and the increased cost of goods sold, among other factors.

Our store has been a pioneer within the franchise, setting trends and achieving remarkable sales milestones. We are proud of the success we have achieved and the standards we have set for excellence within the Graze Craze family. The success of Graze Craze Centennial has always been driven by our exceptional team. Our women-only management team has been a source of pride. We are grateful for their contributions and the positive impact they have made on our business and our community.

Despite our successes, the challenges we face have become insurmountable. We have been impacted by the same economic challenges others in this industry face: rising labor costs, increasing local wages, escalating cost of goods sold, continued supply chain issues and an overall challenging economic environment have made it impossible for us to continue operating sustainably.

While we have explored various options to mitigate these challenges, including cost-saving measures and strategic adjustments, the economic pressures have proven too great. Closing our store is a decision we have not taken lightly, and it comes only after exhausting all other avenues.

We want to express our deepest gratitude to our customers, partners, and community members who have supported us throughout our journey. Your loyalty and encouragement have been the driving force behind our success, and we are immensely thankful for the trust you have placed in us.

To our employees, past and present, we extend our heartfelt thanks. Your dedication, hard work, and passion have been the foundation of Graze Craze Centennial. We are proud of what we have accomplished together and grateful for the memories we have created.

As we prepare to close our doors, we want to ensure a smooth transition for our customers. We will be fulfilling all existing orders and commitments through our closing date on June 30th, 2024. We encourage our customers to reach out with any questions or concerns and to place any final orders before we close.

While this chapter is coming to a close, we remain hopeful for the future. The entrepreneurial spirit that drove the success of Graze Craze Centennial will continue to inspire new ventures and opportunities. We are committed to exploring new ways to bring the joy of delicious food and exceptional service to our community.
