Wegmans opens "cheese caves"
Rochester, N.Y. Wegmans has added a new building to its Chili Avenue complex and a new ability to distribute food.
The Cheese Caves are part of a high tech building that operates much like the famous cheese caves in Europe. Wegmans is believed to be the first supermarket to develop such an operation.
The 12,300 square foot building has a Brie room and seven caves where workers will develop the flavors of different cheeses.
Each cave houses one type of soft cheese at a time.
Our customers will get a cheese thats absolutely perfect, with the taste and texture they prefer, every time, Cathy Gaffney, director of specialty cheeses, deli and kosher deli said in a statement. Building the cheese caves lets us take our commitment to customers who enjoy premium, artisanal cheese to the next level.
The Cheese Caves will bring customers along to learn about what goes into making the cheese and how to distinguish between different flavor and texture profiles.
