Graze Craze, the popular charcuterie concept specializing in hand-crafted grazing boards and boxes, recently opened its newest location at 16845 E. Ave. of the Fountains in Fountain Hills.

Graze Craze Fountain Hills is the first of three new stores that will open, followed by the North Phoenix and Northeast Phoenix locations.

The Fountain Hills store is led by local franchise owners, RuthAnn and Jeff James, who are excited to bring unique culinary offerings to the area with the support of their family.

At Graze Craze, charcuterie arrangements are created by a team of experts, known as “Grazologists.” These artisans carefully curate aesthetically pleasing food displays that incorporate a variety of flavors, colors and textures for the ultimate grazing experience. Each design features high-quality ingredients that complement one another, including premium meats and cheeses, fresh fruits, crisp veggies and house-made sauces, dips and jams.

The Jameses have been residents of Fountain Hills for over 27 years, raising two sons in the vibrant community that is now home to their new charcuterie venture. The pair is looking forward to sharing the innovative concept with locals and vacationers alike by providing a convenient and memorable culinary experience that wows.

“This is a fun, energetic town that loves to celebrate everything, so we know our charcuterie offerings will be the perfect centerpiece to elevate local celebrations,” said RuthAnn James. “We are located near Fountain Park, so clients can pick up Char-Cutie-Cups, Grab & Graze Boxes or our beautiful grazing boards to elevate picnics, parties and other meaningful gatherings.”

Graze Craze boards provide options for every lifestyle, dietary preference or palate and are available in various sizes to cater to any occasion, according to the company.

The artisan-inspired charcuterie offerings at Graze Craze are available in different size options, from Char-Cutie-Cups and Picnic Boxes for nibbling to sharing-size boards with enough fresh food to feed a large party. The food displays are ideal for elevating work meetings, family gatherings, lavish events and more, while they also make for memorable gifts that leave an impression, according to Graze Craze.

Graze Craze Fountain Hills is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, call 480-805-8651.
