Now Is the Time
Start a Charcuterie Business
If you’ve considered investing in a food franchise, our grazing board business could be right for you. Charcuterie boards have proven to be a food trend with staying power. They’re popular from board meetings to birthday parties and can be enjoyed by large groups as well as small gatherings or simply just for lunch. Graze Craze locations have already developed steady followings in each community they serve with house-made ingredients of the finest quality. Now, we’re looking to expand to new locations throughout the U.S.
Why Start a Grazing Platter Business?
There are lots of perks associated with starting a grazing table business as opposed to a typical restaurant franchise.
No cooking required
Our restaurants don’t need stoves, ovens, or microwaves because there’s no cooking required to make a winning charcuterie board. The absence of industrial kitchen equipment reduces the initial investment you’ll need to make and greatly simplifies day-to-day operations.
Charcuterie is blowing up on social media
Charcuterie has been around for hundreds of year although it has been called different names throughout the years such as cheese boards, cheese plates, etc. One of the reasons for the growing popularity of charcuterie boards is that they’re loved on social media. There are nearly a million results for “charcuterie” on Instagram, while Facebook has hundreds of dedicated groups.
There’s something for everyone
Nowadays, many customers have special dietary requirements that make it difficult for them to partake in the processed food sold at most restaurants. Charcuterie boards are meant to offer variety, so people can sample only the foods that work for them. And with fresh fruits, berries, nuts, and veggies as staples, our trays have something everyone can enjoy – opening up the pool of potential customers in your area.
There’s a smaller footprint
Our restaurant is all takeout, delivery and catering. This means the business can be run with just 3-5 employees and doesn’t require as large of a location as your typical restaurant would. Our system creates less headache and a lower initial investment for you.

About Graze Craze
Graze Craze is the brainchild of a U.S. Air Force veteran who, after years of work in the food industry, saw the demand for high-quality, convenient charcuterie boards. After testing out her concept and finding that it worked, she opened her first locations and right away started building a customer base.
While making charcuterie boards is a hobby for some, many consumers find the process time-consuming and intimidating. Graze Craze allows them to delight in boards that look just like the ones they favor online and taste even better. Customers love us first and foremost because of the quality of our products.

Great charcuterie boxes for 1, 2 or more! Plan a romantic picnic or have a healthy lunch. Super selection of yummy food. Fast turn around and great people.
This charcuterie box was sooo yummy! I highly recommend if you are in the area. I believe deliveries in their area are actually free too! So many tasty spreads, dips, meats, cheeses, crackers, breads, veggies, & fruits! This fed 3 adults and we still had leftovers. Go try Graze Craze, Inc. Oh, and they offer a selection of #bedrechocolates found solely at Graze Craze.
We ordered Graze Craze for our daughters graduation party. Everything turned out spectacular. The food tastes so good and they delivered and set everything up. Carrie worked with us to make our day great. All of the guests were very impressed with the way it all turned out. Cannot recommend them enough.
