Home Plate Deli & Caterers and Olive’s Country Store, January’s Client of the Month, have been owned and operated by Alex Stier and his wife Denise for more than fifteen years. The husband and wife team run all day-to-day operations and general marketing of both businesses, and both stores received the Ulster County Regional Chamber of Commerce and the Ulster County Economic Development Alliance’s Small Business of the Year award in 2018.

Olive’s Country Store, located on Route 28 in Shokan, is a unique country store with everything you need in one place. Visit their full cafe for breakfast, lunch, or light dinner, shop for one of a kind gifts, Catskill Mountain & Ashokan Reservoir memorabilia, fishing tackle, live bait, outdoor supplies, and more. Known as the large Mobil gas station on Route 28, you can also fill up your car with gas or grab a BBQ grill tank before “heading up the mountain,” all from this unique gift shop that has been dubbed the “Gatehouse to the Catskills.” (A full list of Olive’s Country Store offerings can be found here—but be on the lookout for their brand new website coming soon!)
Home Plate Deli & Caterers and Olive’s Country Store have been insured by Ryan & Ryan Insurance Brokers for almost 10 years. When asked why they chose R&R as their insurance agency, Alex responded by stating:
“Just like us, Ryan & Ryan is very involved in the community and supports numerous local events and fundraisers. We love that about them. And on the professional side, I find the staff at R&R very accessible. Whenever I need something, they get back to me within an hour. They have been able to get us very good coverage at a reasonable rate, and not only for our two commercial locations, but on the residential and automotive sides as well.”
