The business is owned by Audrey Reese and her daughters Daire and Amber Reese. Audrey Reese owned and operated a small sandwich grocery store about 20 years ago. They moved to Marion from Charlotte to get out of the big city and live more simply in the mountains.
“Here we focus more on smoothies, freshly squeezed juices and more nutritional items,” she said.
With their new restaurant, the Rees feel like they’re offering something a little different in downtown Marion.
“We offer smoothies made with real fruit and no artificial flavors,” said Daire Reese. “We also want to provide more options for dietary needs, including those with dairy intolerance. We offer gluten-free and dairy-free products.
The Reeses run their new restaurant with the help of four employees: Justin Irvin, Tinsley Wiseman, Tiffanie Bailey and Merrick Semple.
Reese’s Delectables and Nourishments is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday to Friday and from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday.
“We wanted to create nutritious items for people on the go so they could have something nutritious to take on the go for the active day,” Audrey Reese said.
Even before the official opening, this new place has received positive reactions from customers who have visited it.
“Reese’s Delectables and Nourishment has the best smoothies and fresh juices and you must have a sandwich/bowl or a salad!!!! You won’t be disappointed!” wrote Steven Kyndra Hames on Facebook.
