Charcuterie boards save Evansville sub-shop and start a business
There is no denying that the past two years have been extremely difficult for local businesses. We unfortunately had to say goodbye to a few local businesses during the pandemic. However, an Evansville company found an interesting side gig that has now sparked a whole new venture.
Sicilian submarines on Franklin Street is a local sub-shop that serves delicious subs with freshly sliced ââdeli in front of you. During the pandemic, the Siciliano Subs saw their fair share of closures and mandates which at times made day-to-day operations difficult. Unfortunately, at one point it looked like the business would have to shut down for good. That’s until an unlikely hero walks in, charcuterie boards.
Charcuterie boards have become increasingly popular in recent years. They are pretty to look at, end up delicious to eat! Danielle, one of the owners of Sicilian submarines, started researching how to make deli boards online and decided to sell them to help his business. Today, business is booming and the charcuterie boards have helped save the local sub-store.
On January 3, 2022, Danielle took Facebook to announce a new business venture. With Siciliano Subs, she will open Siciliano Charcuterie, where she will create and sell charcuterie boards, and even plans to host charcuterie classes (which matters to me, because I will never be able to make my boards as pretty as hers). !
You can follow Siciliano Charcuterie on Facebook to Stay on top of all deli events. Here is what Danielle had to say about the new business through the Siciliano Charcuterie page:
Thank you very much for liking and sharing my page. My name is Danielle and I am one of the owners / operators of Siciliano Subs. With a lot of support from my family and a lot of prayer, I decided to start my own deli business.
Little personal info about me:
I have been married for 15 years in my turn or dies David. We have 3 beautiful children and I am a dog mother of two fur babies. I am originally from Miami, Florida, and have lived in the Evansville area for 4 years. Before becoming a culinary artist, I was a licensed Kindergarten to Grade 12 Spanish teacher.
Why the cold cuts:
Our sub-shop almost closed last year, and after a Pinterest search and a few glasses of wine, I started making charcuterie boards to earn enough money to save our sub-shop. A year later, our shop is booming and charcuterie represents 1/3 of our business model.
What makes you qualified:
I frequent the big cities (especially my hometown Miami) and I study their trends and their latest culinary follies. I have a large food palate and am familiar with a variety of food allergies and favorite food lifestyles. Our sub-boutique recently won a Readers’ Choice award and I personally received the Evansville Junior League Top 20 Business Women award.
I like food. I like people. I like to make things beautiful and effortless for my clients.
I’m excited to bring new flavor profiles, deli class experiences, and superior platters to the Evansville area.
