Meet Chef Jacqui
16 years ago, when my kids were babies, my bestfriend & I started a business with a hot dog cart. We wanted to sell hot dogs on the beach; but in Wells, Me they won't allow it. So we called the local craft events to see if we could sell hot dogs. We found that someone else had already locked in their spot for those events and all events. We then decided to come-up with some healthy choices for event & fair goers and so Serenity Market & Cafe takes life.
Doing events lasted for a year and then we opened up our first deli in Sanford, Me. My friend moved on and it was all me. I needed to support my family at the time and moved the deli to Ogunquit, Me. I was there, killing it, for 2 years. It was time for a change and I sold the deli & bought Mainely Gourmet from 2 older ladies. Mainely Gourmet was located in downtown Portsmouth across from the garage on Hanover St. for 15 years. I owned the shop since 2006. Some of famous chocolate that customers remember are the "Evil Chips", " Christmas Mice" and our delicious fudge.
