Downtown merchant speaks to Kiwanis about marketing a small business

By Kiwanis Club of Rockland | Nov 26, 2012

Members of the Kiwanis Club had the chance to hear about a local

success story at their meeting on November 19, as Patrick O'Brien of

FIORE Artisan Olive Oils & Vinegars, talked about how a small business

can find a niche market in small-town Maine.  With his wife Nancy, the

O'Briens opened their first retail store in Bar Harbor, before opening

their second location in Rockland.  Since that time, the business has

grown and now includes internet sales and shipments of their products

all over the United States.  O'Brien is shown receiving a Kiwanis coffee

mug, while Kiwanis president Amy Pease of Union holds a sample of the

vinegar and olive oil available at FIORE.  Kiwanis members meet every

Monday for their business meeting, where a different speaker is featured

each week.  FMI: rocklandkiwanis.org.
