Cheesy Olives has Sold its 1 Millionth Cheesy Olive after Five Years
Cheesy Olives succeeds in sales after only five years in business
REXBURG – Nov. 21, 2014 – Cheesy Olives, LLC has just sold its 1 millionth Cheesy Olive after being in business for only five years.
As it has sold 1 million Cheesy Olives, the company will now hold a fundraiser to raise $1 million for charity – the Olive Foundation – which gives undersized olives a chance to have the good life on the Wild Olive Preserve in southeast Idaho.
Wild Olive Preserve director, Amy Olive, shares her excitement on what this charity holds for the future.
“We can’t wait to be able to give more wild olives a chance for a happy life at the Wild Olive Preserve,” said Olive. “Thanks to Cheesy Olives and your donations, they will have a chance.”
The charity will take donations for the next six months. The person or organization that contributes the most to the charity will win a 3-night Carnival Cruise in the Gulf of Mexico.
Cheesy Olives come in two sizes – grand and jumbo – which are both gluten free and eligible for donation.
Cheesy Olives, LLC president, Matt Eichner, shares his take on his company’s success, as well as what he hopes for people to contribute to the smaller olives.
“Ever since I heard of putting cheese in olives, I’ve dreamed of the day when Idaho olives and Idaho cheese rule the market. That day has come for Cheesy Olives,” said Eichner. “We couldn’t have done it without all of our customers. We hope that our customers will think about all those olives that aren’t big enough to bottle, and will contribute to the Wild Olive Preserve.”
