About Us


For over forty-four years, the Power family has worked very hard, and with a lot of determination, preparation and a little luck, our products began to achieve popularity, demand and even acclaim! Today we have more than just five in our family; we have the support of over 75 food-passionate team members! Both The Cheese Shop and Fat Canary have been lauded in The New York Times, Newsweek, Washingtonian, Virgnia Living, Distinction, Hampton Roads Monthly, Daily Press and Virginia Pilot.
