It is with heavy hearts that we make this announcement.
Gourmet Berries is closing temporarily. Any orders already placed will be completed. However, as of today, we are not accepting anymore orders. As some of you may already know, we were hit by the Memorial Day tornados last year. We have not lived in our home since that awful night. We never thought in a million years we would still be fighting our insurance company to pay for the damages that have left our home uninhabitable. But here we are, 16 months later. Due to all this, we are stepping back from the business to focus on fighting to get back our home.
That being said, we will reopen as soon as we are moved back into our home and the fight is over. We hope that we can come to a resolution within the next few months and will keep you updated. We appreciate your business over the last two years and cannot wait to be back doing what we love.
New Hours & Contact Free Delivery
Gourmet Berries is now open Tuesday - Friday 10am-5pm, and closed Saturday-Monday. We will still accept weekend orders for large events and/or weddings. If you need a weekend delivery for a large event, please call us.
We are still, and will continue to do, contact free deliveries. If you have received an order during this time, you already know what to expect. All orders are delivered in a tied plastic bag. If you have a free personalized card, it will be in the bag as well. The bag will have the recipient's name on the outside of the bag. When the delivery driver arrives, they will place the packaged order near your door (or wherever you have requested). They will knock/ring the doorbell and then step back at least 6 feet and wait for you to answer the door. If you do not answer, they will take a photo of where the order was left, and we will forward it to the number on file.
New Cities/Zip Codes and Delivery Fees
As we expand our delivery area, we are also changing the cost of deliveries. Any delivery within a 5 mile radius of the store is FREE! Anything 10 mile radius is $5, and 15 mile radius $10, 16-30 mile radius $15. We now serve 61 zip codes. To see what cities are included in the expanded area, click on the link to the right!

Watch our time lapse video to see how we make our Roses!
Anyone who has purchased our chocolate covered roses has seen firsthand how detailed they are. Most do not understand the time and effort that goes into making these beauties. We made a time lapse video to show you how they are created. We have realized after making many orders of our strawberry roses, we are not charging enough to cover the time it takes to make them. Starting May 18th, we have had to raise the prices for this variety and a few others. We appreciate you understanding that we must cover our employees' time when pricing our roses!
- It takes 4 hours from start to finish to make 6 strawberry roses
- It takes 120 petals to make one dozen strawberry roses
- We make our modeling chocolate from scratch
- We hand make each individual petal
- We use the same chocolate we dip our strawberries to create the modeling chocolate
- Rose strawberries are our most time & labor intensive variety
