It’s kind of a funny story how a full time Chartered Professional Accountant, Jason aka J, and former employee at an engineering firm, Kirby, ended up owning a cheese shop.
It simply happened based on the love for food, specifically cheese — knowing how to create a memorable tasting experience based on the pure joy of a delicacy that's been around for centuries.
The married duo acquired The Cheese Wedge in 2014, along with Kirby’s parents, Pamela and Marty Raaymakers. In 2018, the business was rebranded as The Cheese Wedge and the Raaymakers retired.
For nearly 7 years, the store has become a place for people to take their taste buds on a trip all over the world by offering close to 200 options of different local and international cheeses, meats, and gourmet products.
This hidden gem of a cheese shop is located in the village of Point Edward, just outside of Sarnia, serving those who are in Lambton County and surrounding areas.
The team at The Cheese Wedge strive everyday to provide excellent customer service for every person that stops to visit, and they continue to enhance each experience during these unknown times of a worldwide pandemic.
When J and Kirby are not busy running The Cheese Wedge and other businesses, they are active in fundraisers, auctions, and charitable events that support local organizations in the community. They make it a priority to support other Canadian suppliers of fine goods.
