Congratulations to Oil & Vinegar, Our Small Business of the Month!

Posted by: Tripp James on Thursday, August 17, 2017

On behalf of the Greenville Chamber, congratulations goes out to Oil & Vinegar for being selected August 2017 Small Business of the Month! The award was presented by Cheryl Taylor, representing the selection committee and our sponsor, Cowart Awards. Owners, Veera and Joe Gaul joined us to accept. 

Oil & Vinegar is a European-style Retail Boutique with a vast assortment of packaged gourmet food items, a fine selection of ceramic table-ware, culinary accessories and cookbooks.

If it is a culinary shopping experience you desire, then a trip to Oil & Vinegar is a must. The tasting store’s mission is to be your first choice when looking for a unique and "tasteful" gift for any occasion. Come treat yourself to a culinary adventure. Wow your professional and personal network with your logo on our custom printed labels or create a memorable event at one of our tasting parties. An international franchise concept from the Netherlands but locally owned by Joe and Veera Gaul, the store brings together a wide range of international food and culinary accessories in alluring Mediterranean style surroundings.

Joe and Veera Gaul moved to Greenville, SC from Rhode Island to launch their entrepreneurial dream. Oil & Vinegar at NOMA Square has melded their personal and professional interests.

Veera brought her training as a chef, 22 years of experience at Johnson & Wales University and passion for food and wine while Joe parlayed his business and inventory management background to their Culinary Gift Shop.

They both believe in the benefits of olive oil and the Mediterranean diet and are excited to share their enthusiasm for healthy and flavorful food. They enjoy expanding guest’s flavor palates and advising on gourmet gift giving, corporate gifts and easy entertaining.

The Gaul’s are excited to be part of the growing and vibrant Greenville community. “We joined the Chamber in August of 2013 four months before the store opened, because we knew that the networking opportunities provided by the Chamber would be vital to our success – and it has been a great investment” says Joe. 

They invite you to visit them at the NOMA Square store on Main Street for all your gift giving needs and for a culinary adventure that you will savor long after you leave!
