Asheville North Carolina store opens under new interior design

The new OIL & VINEGAR store design was unveiled in the USA in Asheville, NC with the opening of our 7th store on American soil this past weekend. The shop is located in the newest up-and-coming "life-style" center in Asheville, the Biltmore Park Town Square.

We are excited to introduce this latest store format in Asheville, North Carolina with our newest franchise owners, Dana and Terry Hunter. Dana & Terry are long-time residents of the Asheville community and will be tantalizing the local tastes with Oil & Vinegar's vast selection of culinary products and gifts. Follow the Asheville Oil & Vinegar shop on Facebook. The Hunter's will be hosting a Grand Opening Event on September 15th.

The store concept is the 3rd evolution of the Oil & Vinegar specialty store concept, designed by the well-known Terry Moore Design from the UK. The contemporary Southern European kitchen look and feel is a visual element of our consumer experience we believe will make our concept even more inviting for the food enthusiasts we welcome into our stores.

All future stores will be constructed under this new format around the world. In the USA, we will be opening two more franchise stores in Q4 of 2011 - Portland, OR and Dallas, TX. We have also just confirmed West Palm Beach as a future destination for an Oil & Vinegar store in 2012, with the signing of our 10th franchisee. More are soon to come as the interest in our concept continues to grow.
