The People's Cheese™

I started The People’s Cheese™ to consult on projects that furthered missions I believe in:

‌•Identify opportunities for makers and sellers in the specialty food space
‌•Leverage category management, customer engagement and education to create better spaces for buying food, and better food to fill those spaces
‌•Teach a broader, (inter)national market about cheese, why it matters, and how to make it part of everyday life

Major Food Group

Major Food Group Spring 2017 reimagining of the former Four Seasons restaurant in Manhattan's Seagram Building is perhaps the biggest restaurant opening in a decade. For The Grill, one goal was the biggest and best cheese cart in NYC. To achieve this, The People's Cheese™ sourced a 35+ long cheese menu and designed a customized training program for the ultimate in tableside service.

CONO, USA
       
     
CONO, USA

CONO USA manages the American sales and marketing of Beemster, a small farmer-owned cooperative producer of Dutch Gouda. Their goal was to better leverage their closed system of milk production, cheese aging and flavor profile development to communicate their distinction and quality. TPC provided market research, a competitive overview and recommendations for sales and marketing strategies to drive growth in the U.S. market

Multi-Store Supermarket

An iconic, multi-store chain in the Northeast struggled to maximize the sales and profits in its cheese category. For 4th quarter launch, TPC provided category management and optimization with a focus on distinguishing, quality products; merchandising standards to better communicate that quality; and a complete cross-sell/upsell program to increase ASPC.

Crisafulli’s Cheese Shop

To open a best-in-class independent shop selling 100+ cheeses, beer, wine, and related specialty foods, as well as an in-store menu and catering program, Crisafulli’s sought a turn-key consulting package. This included distributor selection, product selection, sales projections, retail and margin recommendations, store design and equipment purchase, merchandising standards and best practices by category.

Cheesemonger Invitational

An industry-changing experience conceptualized to celebrate cheesemongers, CMI was in its successful fourth year when the founder approached Liz to help produce this increasingly complex event. The result: a renewed emphasis on training and education, and a national expansion from NYC to San Francisco.

Fancy Feast Cheese Affair

Fancy Feast came to Liz as a cat owner and cheese expert. The idea? Cheese brings people together -- it's communal, it's conversational. There's so much to learn and talk about. We wanted to bring that experience to a national audience of food lovers and their pets so Liz created recipes, articles and pairings to celebrate cheese.
