Who is 317 Charcuterie?
I started 317 Charcuterie in 2021. My love of and experience with charcuterie, my 13 years in the food service industry, and my longtime desire to start my own business all combined to create 317 Charcuterie.
I am originally from Fort Wayne, but moved to Indy to go to Butler University (Go Dawgs!). I studied Psychology and Italian. When I was fortunate enough to be able to study abroad in Italy I fell in love with the culture, a huge part being their food. The emphasis that Italians place on food and mealtimes to bring people together is quite the experience. The community, love, and laughter that is created at a 3 hour long dinner is something I will not forget. This experience has always been a large inspiration in the business plans I started dreaming up years ago.
And what brings people together better than charcuterie?! I love seeing how people naturally gather around a board and it becomes a centerpiece for discussion and community. It is truly a way to disconnect with our busy lives for a few moments and connect with the people around us.
I am very excited to be in Carmel, Indiana and serving both Carmel and the Indy areas. I seek to bring you high quality, beautiful boards + graze tables, as well as top notch customer service. As a small business, I am also invested in seeking out ways to support my fellow small, local business owners in the Indy community.
