Great Lakes Olive Oil Co
Great Lakes Olive Oil Co. was founded in 2010, by the Lee family. Self-proclaimed Foodies, the Lee family, has a passion for good food; it was this passion that lead them to start Great Lakes Olive Oil Co. While vacationing in 2010, the Lee’s were introduced to the unique world of high quality oils and vinegars and fell in love! After some family discussion and a few bottles of wine, Great Lakes Olive Oil Co. was born.
Over the years the family has changed, gaining a new generation of future olive oil lovers, along with the passing of the Lee family Patriarch; which jump started the “Red Caps for a Cause” campaign. The only thing that has remained constant is their love of family, food, and sharing these passions with their Great Lakes Olive Oil Co.’s guests.
Cherry Republic is about as far from Corporate America as you can imagine. So when we set about to craft a Mission/Vision/Values statement, we knew it would be a bit unconventional. No corporate speak. No management buzzwords. No pretense. Our Core Values would be a genuine, heartfelt description of who we are and who we strive to be each day. It would be a living document, not something trapped in a dusty binder or relegated to a Cloud-based file.
Cherry Republic celebrates Michigan's Montmorency Tart Cherry through its 200+ cherry-based products including chocolate-covered cherries, BBQ sauces, jams, jellies, salsas, nut mixes, ice cream toppings, baked goods, condiments, soda pop, cherry wine and cherry beer.

Since its inception in 1989, the company has donated $2 million to nonprofits that positively impact the environment and communities throughout Michigan.

That's the most rewarding!
