A charcuterie delivery service offering grazing boards and boxes in various sizes, as well as charcuterie cones is opening a brick-and-mortar location in Downtown Denver. Cheese Meat Board owner and operator Melanie Flint hopes to open the shop on North Broadway sometime this spring.
While working at a catering company several years ago, Flint discovered that many clients wanted smaller orders for meetings and events without a high minimum purchase or the requirement of hiring onsite catering staff. “I thought, I can make something that’s really nice in a very pretty presentation, and I can deliver it and do it economically,” Flint told What Now Denver. Flint has owned and operated Cheese Meat Board for delivery only from Denver Kitchen Share since 2019.
Since then, Flint has seen a demand for same-day pickup, so she decided to open a brick-and-mortar location near the Central Business District. “I wanted to be able to have a place where I can build a bigger staff, so somebody can be onsite at all times,” Flint explained.
“We’re going to be in a great spot for a quick pickup for people who want to go grab something to eat for lunch, or somebody who needs to grab something for an office happy hour or a networking event, or something that they can take home.”
Cheese Meat Board offers hand-crafted charcuterie featuring cured meats, gourmet cheeses, fresh and dried fruits, dips and spreads. “You just have to open a box or unwrap a bowl, and you’ll impress your guests.”
Once the City of Denver reviews and approves all permits, a small amount of construction is needed at the space at 2054 N. Broadway, Denver, CO 80205 to meet health department regulations before opening. Flint plans to continue offering delivery to areas of Denver plus pickup and same-day service from the new space.
“Aside from what’s on our menu, we’ll have a couple of different accoutrements that people can come and purchase, some cutting boards,” Flint explained. Flint also plans to start the process to obtain a liquor license.
“We’re excited. We’re looking forward to it,” Flint said. “Our motto is and has been, charcuterie for all.”
