Entrepreneurs Scott and Tommye Solem were inspired to open their own oil and vinegar shop in Jacksonville, Florida after visiting a similar shop, Fustini’s, in Northern Michigan where Scott grew up.
Tommye explains, “Once I started studying the health benefits alone of consuming olive oil, I was hooked! And that led to us starting our own version of an olive oil store.”
The health benefits of olive oil are many, and they’ve already experienced many testimonies from their customers, including lowered cholesterol, faster healing from surgery and reduced inflammation.
Simply the Best Product
The Olive Oil Store imports premium extra virgin olive oils and balsamic vinegars from Italy, Spain, Portugal, Tunisia, Australia, Argentina, and Chile. They also get olive oil from California’s West Coast. True extra virgin olive oil is perishable because it is so minimally processed. It’s important to know when an olive oil was harvested to ensure the freshest available.
Their most popular products include an infused Tuscan Herb Olive Oil and Aged Balsamic Vinegar. To ensure the highest quality, best flavor, and greatest health benefits, they go one step further and have the chemistry of their extra-premium virgin olive oils tested, making the results available to their customers.
The Nashville Store
Recently, they opened a second location in Nashville because they love the city, having spent a lot of time there over the years, traveling to their summer home in Michigan and visiting their son in Nashville while he attended Vanderbilt University.
You can sample over 70 olive oils and balsamic vinegars at the store. You can even gather there with you friends for a private tasting party where they serve wine and hors d’oeuvres. They have a great bridal registry, and you can make your own wedding favors with their cute 2 oz. bottles.
Happy customers have been the key to Scott and Tommey’s business growth. She says, “9 out of 10 customers say ‘someone told them about our store’.”
Advertise with Custom Printed Bags
The owner of Fustini’s who happens to also be a Nashville Wraps customer, told Scott about us. Since opening, The Olive Oil Store has used Nashville Wraps for all their packaging. Their store bags for customer purchases include custom printed frosted merchandise bags, printed kraft shopping bags, tissue paper and grosgrain ribbon. They also do a lot of gift baskets and use several shrink wrap products as well as gift wrap.
