Lynn Cheney: Maker to Main
Business Preview & #QuickBite
Meet Lynn Cheney, entrepreneur, innovator and owner of Maker to Main, a new boutique grocery store and commissary on Main Street in Worcester, MA. Maker to Main is the first of it's kind and a truly unique concept. All of the products, from produce and poultry to dry goods and dairy are locally sourced from farmers and craft artisans from New England, but mostly Central MA. Not only does the store serve the needs of the neighborhood, following the city's surge in downtown residency but it supports the agricultural and hospitality industry. Lynn delivers produce and meat to local restaurants, literally feeding the local supply chain. Despite opening her first brick-and-mortar mere weeks before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Lynn has adapted, continues to operate under the evolving guidelines and remains optimistic. In fact, Lynn tells us that working with local vendors has helped her keep inventory healthy where some of the bigger shops and chains have been unable to fulfill distribution orders. Check out our #QuickBite with Lynn, visit the store's website at www.makertomain.com and, if you're in the area, stop by and say hi. Tell her Food & Convo sent you.
