Retail Buzz: Savory Spice Shop has a New Owner

Savory Pic medium

For over five years, The Savory Spice Shop has been a fixture on E. Broad St., opened in 2010 by sisters Jackie Mittelhammer and Becky Solheim. Customers came to enjoy not only the freshly ground herbs and spices and the hand-blended seasonings, but the friendly service and culinary advice provided by the sisters and their staff. With the start of the new year, the owners made the difficult decision to focus more on their growing families and decided to pass their spice baton back to the head office based in Denver, CO. The shop will be managed locally by Westfield resident, Marty Silverman, an employee for almost 2 years. Marty not only brings a true passion for all things good to eat, but a real appreciation for what was built over the last 5 years. Marty fully supports the "experience" that is shopping at Savory Spice Shop. The smells, the tastes, the recipes, the suggestions, and the personalized service.

Departing owners Jackie and Becky expressed their thanks to their customers in the following statement; "We've been lucky over the last 5 years to have amazing people pass through these doors, helping us to provide our customers with the best possible shopping experience. You will continue to see familiar faces here in the shop with Denyse and Meredith remaining as part of the team. They too are extremely knowledgeable and able to assist in all of your spice-buying needs; always willing to share ideas and recipes of their own. Without any of these fantastic employees of ours, we couldn't have done what we've been doing for the last 5 years, and we thank them! And to our amazing customers, thank you for allowing us into your homes, hearts, and endless meals of deliciously-spiced goodness. You've made this such a life-changing experience for us, one that we'll never forget. We've loved being a part of the vital Downtown Westfield Community and we think we'll always feel like your spice girls."
