Thank you for the opportunity to introduce myself as the new deli manager at Weavers Way Chestnut Hill! I grew up in Mt. Airy and attended C.W. Henry School across the street and fondly remember the Co-op as my first corner store. It is an incredible experience to be part of the Weavers Way team as it continues to grow beyond those corner-store walls.
It’s not a huge surprise to find myself here. My interest in specialty foods was piqued when I started my first summer job at the old Roller’s Market in Chestnut Hill. I had the unique privilege to learn about professional baking, cooking, charcuterie, cheese and so much more from Paul Roller and his epic team for many years. I really developed a base knowledge of gourmet products while working for him during a time when the average grocery store did not even sell brie. And while I pursued degrees and other careers, working with food was always so much more interesting and satisfying.
I joined the Weavers Way Prepared Foods Department in Chestnut Hill in 2014 and am over-the-moon excited to expand my role here by managing our deli and sandwich station. Previous Manager Matt Budenstein left large boots to fill, but with the help of Assistant Deli Manager Rosemarie La Follette, I am looking forward to introducing you to some fantastic new products and learning about your old favorites.;
