Christal Maxwell, a single mother of two, had worked in the restaurant industry her entire adult life. Then a pandemic threatened her livelihood.
“When Covid hit in 2020, I struggled to get on my feet,” she said.
Luckily for Christal, she is skilled in the kitchen and has a knack for business. She knew people were sick of cooking and missed dining out. Christal saw a need and started whipping up charcuterie boxes and creating meals to sell to the gastronomically deprived.
“I decided to make and sell date-night charcuterie boxes and meals for families,” Maxwell said.
In just over two short years, Amazing Graze has grown and thrived. Christal’s attention to detail, artistry, and epicurean skills have created a demand for her talents.
Her biggest “flex” is that she can customize her charcuterie and catering orders to fulfill almost any request. From gluten-free or vegetarian options to specific themes like “hangover boxes,” Amazing Graze can be completely tailored to your tastes, diets, and sensibilities.
Christal also uses Colorado products whenever possible to support the local food and beverage community and to promote local pride.
Due to the success of Amazing Graze, Christal was recently able to upgrade her business operations to a larger commercial space. This new space affords Amazing Graze the ability to expand catering options as well as to hire more employees for the growing business.
Another opportunity that the new space has provided is an area to host charcuterie workshops. A great idea for a date night or girls' night out, the workshops take clients through the creative process of assembling a themed charcuterie board that can then be taken home to enjoy.
