Adding Seasoning Blends to Your Olive Oil Shop
Adding Seasoning Blends to Your Olive Oil Shop

We’ve had the opportunity to work with a variety of olive oil shop owners, from small single unit shops to those that have been doing this for a few years and have expanded to multiple locations.

Several of these successful independent olive oil shop owners have shared with us their "secret sauce" for growing their existing customer base, increasing average order size while also receiving more repeat business. All three are critical in taking a business from merely getting started to actually surviving and ultimately to thriving.


What’s their Secret?
Learning how to not only be able to pair olive oils with specific vinegars but also being adept at which new product categories to test for expansion. Typically they go with gourmet salts. Easy seems like a good fit. But many have found even more success with adding seasoning blends.

Just as in being an expert at pairing oils and vinegars they need to understand which seasoning blends pair best with which infused or single varietal olive oils. These successful shops certainly love to experiment in their own home kitchens but they’re also masters at eliciting feedback from their regular repeat customers that purchase from both of these categories. This knowledge significantly increases sale opportunities with both first time and repeat customers.

Olive oil shops that are growing like crazy tend to have increased opportunities to either expand their existing space or to look at other prime locations for expansion opportunities.


Ideal Pairings
Some of their best olive oil and seasoning blend pairings are:

Persian Lime Infused Olive Oil with:
Adobo Lime Rub
Lime Pepper
Smoky Citrus Salt

Meyer Lemon infused olive oil with:
Lemon Pepper
Mojo Seasoning
Caribbean Spice
Citrus Seasoning

Blood Orange infused olive oil with:
Citrus Steak Seasoning
Habanero Garlic Pepper

Chipotle infused Olive Oil with:
Honey Chipotle Rub
Barbacoa
Applewood Chipotle Rub

Garlic infused olive oil with:
Roasted Garlic Pepper
Austin Steakhouse Rub
Pizza Seasoning
Pennsylvania Pepper

Our top selling seasoning blend to olive oil shops of all sizes is our Tuscany Bread Dipping Seasoning and this works well with both California Arbequina or an Italian Blend.

Working with these successful shops has given us great insight into what are the “must have seasoning blends” any size olive oil shop should carry if they are looking to test this product category and achieve the greatest return on their investment.

If you want to know what are the 25 most popular seasoning blends for these shops or if you have questions about testing this category in your own shop then shoot us an email Rob or give him a call at 1-888-762-8642. We love talk to independent olive oil shop owners about spices, seasoning blends and helping them grow and expand their product categories while  getting the biggest bang for their buck.
