For over 200 years the Round Hill Store has served back country residents in Greenwich with a convenient source for staples and provisions. In fact, the store, established in 1801, is the oldest continuously operated general store in the US.
Third generation business owners John and Robin Vanacore understand that meeting the needs of their customers is the key to their success.
“John and I have recognized the importance of our historic store to the Round Hill community and have been upgrading and improving not only our wonderful building, but also what we offer in terms of product,” said owner, Robin Vanacore.
“While trying to keep the traditional look of the store, we also have installed modern technology, a deli, and now a food truck,” Vanacore continued. “The truck offers high-end take home meals to the community – something that people have been requesting for years.”
Their customers asked and they answered by hiring Chef Leslie Woodword. Chef Leslie, a graduate from the Orlando Culinary Academy’s Le Cordon Bleu Program, started her culinary journey under the James Beard Award-winning chef Roy Yamguchi. Her farm-to-table inspired weekly menu items offer customers high quality meals utilizing organic, seasonal and locally sourced meats and produce.
