Innovative, charcuterie concept offers unique grazing boards to St. Johns County in time for the holidays.
Graze Craze, a booming new concept in charcuterie boards and boxes for healthy lunches, office catering and special events, has opened in St. Augustine, Florida at 650 Market Street in the Palencia shopping center. Graze Craze is part of the United Franchise Group family of affiliated brands. Owners of the St. Augustine location are husband-wife duo and first-time franchise owners, Erich and Kathy Schwieterman.
The Schwietermans were looking into business opportunities centered around unique concepts that catered to their personal interests and healthy alternatives when their research led them to Graze Craze. They were excited about providing unique eating experiences and the quality, variety, and freshness of the offerings, along with the opportunity to utilize their skills from their corporate careers. Originally from Tennessee, the couple has lived in Northeast Florida for 27 years and are ready to serve the community they call home.
“St. Augustine features centuries-old architecture, iconic cultural sites, unspoiled beaches, romantic resorts and distinctive eateries. As a member of the community, we wanted to provide more for St. Augustine and offer the locals something fresh, fun, and different,” said the Schwietermans. “Market Street and its live/work design is in the heart of the community and adds a new dimension to its residents. We think Graze Craze will fit in perfectly here.”
Graze Craze specializes in artfully designed, hand-crafted charcuterie boards and boxes featuring high- quality foods arranged perfectly for nibbling or hearty graze-style meals — including gourmet meats, cheeses, fresh fruits and vegetables, artisanal sweets and more. The unique menu features several grazing options fit for any occasion and lifestyle. Whether it’s a formal affair for veggie lovers or a casual get- together complete with meat and cheese for a low-carb crew, Graze Craze has something to offer everyone. Each charcuterie board is beautifully curated by a Grazologist — your very own charcuterie concierge — with several different size options from single boxes for the lone grazer, to grazing boards with enough fresh food to feed a party of ten or more.
The St. Augustine Graze Craze offers free local delivery, and the storefront is open for pick-ups from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Sunday.
