The business is owned by Audrey Reese and her daughters Daire and Amber Reese. Audrey Reese owned and operated a small sandwich deli about 20 years ago. They relocated to Marion from Charlotte as a way to get out of the big city and live more simply in the mountains.
“Here we focus more on smoothies, freshly squeezed juices and more nutritional items,” she said.
With their new eatery, the Reeses feel like they are providing something a little different for downtown Marion.
“We offer smoothies that are made with real fruit and no artificial flavoring,” said Daire Reese. “We also want to offer more options for dietary needs, that includes people who have an intolerance to dairy products. We cater to gluten-free and dairy-free products.”
The Reeses run their new eatery with help from four employees: Justin Irvin, Tinsley Wiseman, Tiffanie Bailey and Merrick Semple.
Reese’s Delectables and Nourishments is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday.
“We wanted to create nutritious items for people on the go so they could have something nutritious to grab and go for the active day,” said Audrey Reese.
Even before the grand opening, this new place has gotten some positive reaction from customers who have checked it out.
“Reese’s Delectables and Nourishment have the best smoothies and fresh juices and you have to pick up a sandwich/bowl or salad!!!! You will not be let down!” wrote Steven Kyndra Hames on Facebook.
