Olive Oil Divine – Johnson City
Olive Oil Divine was conceived in the summer of 2014 and in January 2015, was found to be independent of any franchisor, nor is it associated with any contracted corporate supplier like many other olive oil & vinegar stores is. Husband and wife owners, Greg and Shirley Mueller have over 65 years of combined business operational and ownership experience.
They take great pride in offering the "Best in Class" selection of gourmet Extra Virgin Olive Oils as well as the smoothest and tastiest Balsamic vinegar and condiments. In fact, before being offered to the customers, all gourmet products offered at Olive Oil Divine must pass the stringent quality and taste tests that Greg and Shirley have set in place. This is just one of the many characteristics that set Olive Oil Divine apart from all the olive oil stores!
Olive Oil Divine is recognized as a dynamic, faith-based, and contemporary designed tasting bar for gourmet ingredients and condiments. This becomes evident when one visits the store and becomes familiar with, not only the products but also how the ownership and their team addresses and interacts with the customers. As an independently owned business, the local ownership has taken great care in creating a truly one-of-a-kind experience apart from what any franchise or corporately supplied oil and vinegar store could come close to.
A visit to the store will leave you breathless from the beauty of the many polished stainless steel product containers called "fusti's" that sit atop constantly polished stainless steel tables. The flavors one will experience while tasting directly from the fusti's will leave you excited about putting insanely delicious flavors back into your food while knowing you have found something very healthy as well!
"We love the warm reception Olive Oil Divine receives from the visitors and customers of this area who visit our store for a tasting experience," say Greg and Shirley. "The majority of people who walk through our door are such lovely people who share their lives with us as we share what our shopping experience has to offer them. We are blessed when our new friends stop in to just say hi, and of course, many times offer how blessed they are to have found us and what our store has to offer! We believe that one should have fun in what they do, and it is fun for us to open our doors each day to wait and see who the Lord will send through it that day!"
