BaltimoreSmall.com published an interview for the business owner of Cheese Galore and More on Jan 22,2021.
Below is the full story of Sharon Johnson and her business Cheese Galore and More…
“I always thought that people who owned restaurants were a bit crazy. But I always toyed with the idea of opening something myself.
I used to work for a handful of different corporations, and they all kept downsizing or dramatically changing their business models. Finally, during the recession, I said, “You know what, I’m tired of working for other people. I’m going to do something for myself.”
Historically, there has always been a cheese shop in Federal Hill. However, there was a big chunk of time in the early 2000’s where we had no cheese shops, so I felt there was a need. Plus, I love specialty food culture.”
“From there, it just kind of happened. I didn’t really sit here and plan it for years.
My goal was to make a specialty shop where you could come and taste the cheese before you bought it. I wanted my shop to be a much more personal experience than what you might experience at a supermarket.
People find all the differences between various cheeses fascinating – there’s a cheese for almost every day of the year. You’ve got a story to tell with so many of them, and that’s fun too.”
