Why We Started
In January 2006, Nancy and Scott Schneider purchased the Chef’s Shoppe. Nancy ran the day-to-day operations including the purchasing for the store while Scott did all the back-end bookwork. In July of 2009, Nancy and Scott (with the help of their employees and friends) moved the shoppe to its current location increasing the store to 4,000 square feet. Homemade Fudge was added the same year. Since then the Chef’s Shoppe has come to offer thousands of different items perfect for all kitchens, whether it be cookware, gadgets, bakeware, cutlery, grilling or more. Our staff will help you find the perfect items for preparing and serving your favorite recipes
Who needs popcorn? Nancy and Scott decided everyone does. So in May 2012 the Chef’s Shoppe expanded again, taking over the 2,500 square foot space adjacent to the existing business and adding popcorn. But they didn’t start small – offering over 70 flavors of popcorn every day, the Chef’s Shoppe entered the popcorn scene in a big way. Scott, having officially retired after 32 years with AT&T the year before, was the head “popologist”. With the help of his merry band of popping and coating specialists they turned out hundreds of gallons of popcorn every week.
Now the Shoppe has undergone several changes since 2012. Including the most recent addition of 160 bulk candy dispensers, Salt Water Taffy, hand-painted Chocolates, and 53 different types of glass bottle soda. We have also become a certified dealer of the Big Green Egg!
So stop by and say "Hi.", have a look around the Shoppe and try our house-made popcorn and fudge, and enjoy!
