Hello, my name is Nick McGee and this is my new business, "for the King charcuterie". You may have heard of my work from my recent posts on Omaha Food Lovers as "Nick from Hy-Vee". I am taking a leap of faith and starting my own charcuterie board business.
In 2016 when I was at my lowest, God challenged me to complete something without quitting and He would show me how much I can grow as a person. I decided I could not go the same amount of time it would take me to complete a program and look back and go, "if only I would have started I would be done by now." I decided the Metropolitan Community College associates degree in Culinary Arts would be my field of study, my mother, an excellent home chef, inspired me to start. During my first class, the instructor told the class that a former graduate of the program had moved out to California and started running a successful Charcuterie and Wine business. From that moment, something stirred in me. I didn't know what my future held, but I graduated in May of 2019. During my time at school I was working for Hy-Vee and eventually became the Charcuterie Specialist in 2020. During this tenure, I've enjoyed success as your Omaha Food Lover charcuterie go-to guy, and I hope to continue that.
In July 2022 I decided that it was time for me to resign my position from Hy-Vee to pursue a career that would align with my faith. I surely do not deserve this, but I thank the Lord for the opportunities in front of me. God has truly moved mountains in my life and I am proud to introduce a company that is faith based and for our King.
Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.
