A new business in Hollister will have family, friends, or co-workers saying “Cheese.”
Boards by Haley, a company started by Haley Brooks, offers artisan charcuterie boards, pasture tables, meat and cheese boards, dessert boards, seasonal boards, holiday boards, and even custom boards for events and parties of all sizes.
According to the Boards by Haley website, all cheese boards are created in a commercial kitchen shared with Tiers By Stephanie, which is licensed by the City of Hollister and inspected by the Taney County Health Department.
Brooks told Branson Tri-Lakes News that she was inspired by a love of food and officially opened her business in May.
“I started Boards by Haley because my original plan was to have it as a side job rather than a full-fledged business while I progressed through my master’s program,” Brooks said. “I’ve worked as a personal chef for the past two years, cooking meals from home and weekly prepping. Making and preparing food is something I’ve always loved doing. I thought to myself, Branson don’t There’s nothing like it and big cities are full of deli meats.I wanted to bring this to Branson to keep up with big city trends and provide a unique and special experience.
Brooks said creating each board with care and creativity is key to making his product stand out.
“What makes me unique and sets me apart is the variety of services I offer. In addition to making charcuterie boards, I offer custom messages to add to your boards,” Brooks said. “Each painting I create is uniquely created from a blank canvas and custom made for each event and special occasion.”
Brooks said having a passion for food and putting her heart into every board is what she hopes customers will expect from her boards.
“Each client can expect an elegant, edible piece of art, uniquely crafted for their event or occasion,” Brooks said. “As each order is custom made, it is also made with love.”
Brooks said her family had been a pillar of support for her as she started this new business.
“I love what I do. I have a great support system that helps me every step of the way. By supporting my small business, you’re supporting my family,” Brooks said. “I’m truly grateful for every order I received and for all the support from the people who have helped me grow my business. I have been truly blessed and I owe everything to God.
