Who We Are

The staff at The Purple Onion is here to serve you. Most of the time Allan Hathaway (that's me - fearless leader in a ball cap) is available and helping customers, but Felicia, my wife, does a lot of behind the scenes work. I have always worked in the food industry in one job or another and we opened The Purple Onion 2003. We love to talk about our products and we're confident we can find something new for you to try as well as your old favorites.
