UPDATE 11/18/22: Congratulations to the entire Rockstar Boarderie team for landing a shark (Lori Greiner) on ABC's Shark Tank tonight!

During the pandemic, Aaron and his wife Julie Menitoff started the charcuterie company, formerly known as Cheeseboarder, back in 2020. They literally bet the farm on this business and, along with Rachel Solomon, they defined a new category in edible gifting with the most amazing customers, team and partners. Angel Gerez is Boarderie’s COO. They successfully pivoted from catering in Wellington and special events to create Boarderie. In less than two years, the founders never could have imagined it would become what it is now - the first and only company shipping completely pre-assembled, catering-quality cheese and charcuterie boards overnight, nationwide.

Gift better with hand-selected artisan cheeses, meats, dried fruits, nuts and chocolates artfully arranged on a keepsake Acacia wood board that arrives pre-assembled and ready-to-share

Boarderie, the first and only company delivering a delightfully simple way to give and share pre-arranged, catering-quality cheese and charcuterie boards, announced its direct-to-consumer website is live and they are ready for the most wonderful (and busiest) time of the year. Uniting everyday convenience with gourmet artistry, their expert team sources the highest-quality, artisan inspired ingredients from around the world for a one-of-a-kind tasting experience. Now the handcrafted quality and read-to-graze displays are delivered overnight, nationwide.

“This direct-to-consumer launch solidifies our spot as the first and only brand providing consumers and businesses alike with catering-quality cheese and charcuterie boards that are delightfully simple to send and guaranteed to impress,” said Rachel Solomon, Co-CEO, Boarderie. “We’ve created a whole new category in edible gifting and entertaining, and have been fortunate to see incredible demand since day one. Traditional food gifts have fallen behind. They under-serve customers with inefficient, outdated, and impersonal gift baskets that miss the mark and fail to provide an impressive experience. We’ve taken premium grazing experiences to a new level for this holiday season and so many other occasions throughout the year,” Solomon added.

With Boarderie, there is no shopping, cutting, or prepping required. Boards are shipped temperature-controlled and perfectly arranged. With each board, consumers and gift givers can expect:

Artful presentation

Boarderie’s boards look almost as good as they taste. Each is display-worthy and features a tapestry of the unique ingredients that arrive looking exactly as they do in the pictures.

Gourmet Curation

The company and its founders take pride in the exceptional quality of the products. Featuring individually selected hand-cut cheeses and meats sourced from award winning producers around the world, each board serves up perfectly paired, impeccably sourced assortments that unite variety and novelty with complete harmony.

“Our vision has been perfected over 20 years in hospitality, and we think it shows. You’ll see our expertise reflected in deliciously display-worthy arrangements, catering-level quality, and chef-inspired pairings,” said Aaron Menitoff Co-CEO, Boarderie. “Whether you’re giving, celebrating, or sharing at home, at an event or at work, you’re free to enjoy a grazing experience that delivers all of the flavors with none of the fuss.

All boards include bamboo serving ware. Nuts arrive individually bagged and placed in each tray. To see the full range of custom boards, visit
