Talbott & Arding Cheese & Provisions opened on Warren Street in Hudson in 2016. It was clear from the beginning this was a specialty food shop that was truly special.
On the surface, it’s a cheese and pastry shop with a bakery and prepared foods to go. But on top of that, the company has developed a line of crackers and preserves under the Talbott & Arding name that is sold on the internet. The owners are investing in their website to drive e-commerce while increasing revenue in their flagship store. They are investing in infrastructure and staff development, and exploring a partnership with a complementary business. They cater events throughout the Hudson Valley and the New York metropolitan area.
As the Talbott & Arding brand continues to grow, the owners remain grateful to be part of Columbia County. To quote Kate Arding, “The heart of the business is here.”
“CEDC provided an SBA Microloan to Talbott & Arding Cheese & Provisions shortly after it opened in 2014. The business leveraged those funds to expand and create jobs. As the business continues to grow, the owners are re-investing in both the business and their community. We are proud to recognize atrue small business success story, ” stated CEDC President Michael Tucker.
The owners say they have received nothing but support from the community. But they also give support. While working countless hours to build the business, the owners make time to teach cooking skills to children through the Hudson Youth Department. They share their business skills with at-risk girls in the Hudson City School District. Talbott and Arding know the meaning of the word – community.
