Gourmand Tours will not be meeting that fate any time soon. Started in 2011 by Rachel's mom Chris when Rachel was still a student, the company consistently earns rave reviews. Rachel offers fascinated foodies insightful insider experiences informed by her and Chris' local catering background. "Main Street businesses are a close-knit culture, a community," she reflects. "One thing that makes it special is those who work in the service industry on Main take care of and support each other."

At home, Rachel enjoys her doggo Gooey ("She sticks to people and licks all the time," she laughs) while she and her husband raise a baby girl. She loves making new family memories in a place where her own childhood is still vivid. "I remember sledding on the ski resort runs on full moon nights and the beautiful, endless summer nights driving and relaxing outdoors," she recalls. 

Rachel's infectious joie de vivre and deep local knowledge exemplify the love of PC shared by so many Chamber partners. We're glad she – and Chris – are part of our family.
