Making it happen...
The Store in Pasadena is located at 120 S. Raymond St - inside of The Bea's Knees Wine Cheese & Gifts - at The Shoppes at Stats - just below Green Street. We have been there since 2014 when we partnered with The Shoppes at Stats - making two small family operated businesses much stronger and successful together - a positive synergy indeed!
Across town at USC, BTO’s proprietress, Lisa, was getting her MBA while BTO’s founders were getting theirs’ at Pepperdine University. Unbeknownst to one another at the time, they were both writing business plans to share their passion for great food, wholesome products and healthy living.
More importantly, both shared an intrigue with California’s blessed resource, one-of-a-kind agriculture. Lisa’s family has been in agriculture since the 1910s here in California.
Beyond the Olive is different than the other olive oil stores. We only carry exclusively produced and bottled in California extra virgin olive oil – not shipped over and imported from Europe. This way we can control the product. Our partners are small producers. We are committed to supporting our local economy, and California crops.
We are a small business, doing our best to share our passion with the world. Come visit, taste, learn and let us share our love of olive oil with you.
