In September 2015, Harry and his wife Phoebe took over Love Cheese. They saw a lovely little shop in the heart of York that served the locals and fell in love. With a passion for good food and drink it was an easy decision to make.
They wanted to take it and reach a wider audience that were unaware of what a little gem they had on their doorstep. The dream continued to unfold, as they set up an online shop and introduced even more people to the deliciousness of independently produced cheese.
Today, their dream has exceeded all expectations. In 2020, the pandemic broke out and with it the closure of many shops, limiting businesses everywhere.
Through its online store, Love Cheese remained to supply the best quality produce at the click of a button while shop opening times were limited.
The one thing that was missing at the heart of the business was the ability to continue to entertain and inspire people with the joy of cheese and wine. From this, the Virtual Tasting Experiences were born.
What started off as a trail venture, quickly boomed into something wonderful. Since it began, Love Cheese at its core is about inclusivity and accessibility. We want to deliver high quality produce to all walks of life in the UK. Love Cheese now has 3 amazing aspects of the business; the Shop and Speakcheesey, our Online Store, and our incredible Virtual Tasting Experiences.
Who Are We?
We are a small business with big dreams!
The aspects of Love Cheese include; Our Shop and ‘Speakcheesy’ on Gillygate, York, our online store and our Virtual Tasting Experiences. This wonderful trifecta has allowed us to continue to grow together and as a brand on the whole. Each section of Love Cheese supports and develops the other, both as aspects of the business and for the staff that work within it. We wouldn’t have one without the other. As one side booms and grows, it can allow for other areas to be formed, developed and perfected. That’s what makes us special!
