Husband-and-wife team Silas and Lindsey Coffelt, lifelong residents of Greater Lansing, celebrated the opening of their new business in style. On Friday (April 28), the couple, alongside their moms and the Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce, welcomed the newest location of Graze Craze, a Florida-based chain specializing in charcuterie boards and boxes, to Okemos. The event allowed potential customers to sample the selection of gourmet meats, cheeses, artisanal sweets and other tasty foods available on the menu and claim special offers for future orders.
“It’s a unique concept for the Greater Lansing area,” the Coffelts said in a press release. “We love the idea of bringing new, fun and creative options to the area, as well as Graze Craze’s philosophy to ‘Celebrate Everything’ — the opportunities are endless.”
Graze Craze specializes in artfully designed charcuterie boards and boxes featuring high-quality foods that are made fresh daily. They’re arranged perfectly for nibbling or hearty graze-style meals, so customers have the flexibility to eat an entire board at once or small portions of food throughout the course of the day.
Each board is curated by a “grazologist,” a trained charcuterie concierge that takes the dietary needs of each customer into account. Vegetarians may be interested in The Vegegrazian, which includes various fruits, vegetables, spreads, cheeses and sweets, while others may be interested in keto-friendly boxes that focus more on protein and less on bread and sugary items. The Sweet and Grazey, which features a variety of gourmet chocolates, baked goods and fruits, would be perfect for date nights or anniversaries.
Graze Craze’s menu has several different size options, from single boxes for the lone grazer to large boards with enough food to feed a large family get-together or office party. The classic Grab and Graze option offers a balanced meal for one person, with multiple kinds of cheeses, bread, crackers, fruits, homemade dips (like lemon-dill mayo or roasted red pepper hummus) and a sweet treat for only $12. The Picnic Box, one of the Grazing Box options, can feed two to four people for $75.
The price of each charcuterie board depends on its size: Small boards are $105, while large boards, which can feed eight to 10 people, are $165.
Folks who are looking to add even more deliciousness to their boards and boxes may be interested in add-ons such as the Gourmet Pickle Box, which includes three jars of homemade pickled veggies for $22.
The store offers pick-ups and free delivery as well as catering and business gift programs. Visit facebook.com/grazecrazeokemosmi to see what the business is up to daily or grazecraze.com/okemos-mi to check out its menu and sign up for its loyalty program.
