President & Co-Founder, Cheese Brothers
PPAI 831390


How did your company get its start?

We opened in 2015, offering our cheeses at our former store at the Mall of America and at street festivals and farmers markets throughout the country. During the pandemic in 2020, we shut down our in-person retail operations and pivoted entirely to e-commerce. Our business has grown rapidly ever since. We now ship hundreds of cheese gift boxes daily to customers nationwide.

What led your company to enter the promotional products market?

From our fun and unique brand presentation to our e-commerce operations and customer service, our business is perfectly suited to the corporate gifting and promotional products market. We have the capability to efficiently ship our gift packs anywhere in the country, and everything we do is designed to make a lasting impression. Since emerging as the top cheese e-commerce company, we’ve gained a lot of experience in creating customized gifts for business clients at volume.

What's your favorite thing about being in the promotional products industry?

We’ve only just begun our journey in the promotional products industry. We love exceeding expectations, both in the quality of our cheeses and in the unboxing experience of receiving one of our custom gifts. Getting a great review and referral from a customer is what keeps us motivated to keep pressing our business forward.

Why did you join PPAI?

We are ready to launch our gourmet cheese gifts to the larger corporate gift industry, and we believe PPAI is the perfect place to reach distributors and make a big impact in the industry.
