Franchise locations open in Dallas & Portland markets

Just in the nick of time to capitalize on the holiday season sales, our two newest franchise store locations open in Allen Texas (North Dallas area) and Happy Valley Oregon (East Portland area) bringing the USA chain to 9 stores.

Cheryl Kobza, owner of the Allen Texas location, discovered Oil & Vinegar two years prior when living in Germany. Upon returning to their home in North Dallas a year ago, Cheryl and her husband Marvin decided to open the shop they fell in love with overseas in their own their back yard at the Watters Creek lifestyle center. The doors opened November 22nd. Morgen Wright (daughter) is helping out with the marketing of the store locally making the venture for the Kobza's a true family affair.

Three days later, Dani & Paul Bohannon opened their store in the Clackamas Town Center in Happy Valley Oregon. The business is also a family endeavor, with Dani's sister Christie by her side running the day to day operations and husband Paul helping out on the sales floor on weekends. For the Bohannon's, opening the store on Black Friday was a mad rush, but they managed to deliver the top sales across the chain on the day. For Oil & Vinegar, this is our first store to open in the state of Oregon. Having grown up in the Portland area, I am elated to be welcoming our brand to my hometown.
