Fenton, MI-based Feast Gourmet Kitchen Shop has been named one of 2019’s best small businesses, an awards program presented by Michigan Celebrates Small Business.
“Feast has been a long work in progress for me,” said Sean Gartland, chef and owner of Feast Gourmet Kitchen Shop. “It has been great to share my knowledge gleaned from many years in the restaurant industry and culinary school studies with our customers. The time and care we take to find the best products to offer in the shop shows in how excited our customers are to discover something new for their own kitchens.”
Companies recognized as a “Best Small Business” through Michigan Celebrates Small Business were selected by their regional Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC), Small Business Development Center (SBDC), or SmartZone. Honorees are selected based on their demonstration of successful growth and contributions to the economy of Michigan.
Winners were selected by Michigan-based judges from the banking, economic development, entrepreneurship development, and venture capital communities.
The store opened in July 2017 and features what Gartland calls a “chef-curated” line of kitchenware as well as locally sourced food brands. Feast also offers cooking classes for both the novice as well as the seasoned cook, Gartland said.
