Tori and Carl met at Cornell School of Hotel Administration in Ithaca, New York. They opened Oregano Joes in 1988 and operated it for 12 years, feeding the hungry mouths of Charlottesville. They expanded the business to handle catering, and then equipment rentals, which ultimately became Festive Fare Party Rentals. They sold the very successful business to Classic Party Rentals. Being serial entrepreneurs, they opened Stonefire Station in 2004 and Stonefire Kitchen in 2010.
Incidentally, they still get calls from customers asking for the recipe for the gorgonzola dressing!
