Our Story

Hello! We are Gail and Natalie Kennedy, the owners of The Splendid Olive. We are a small, family-owned business that is dedicated to bringing high-quality products to our community and sharing our passion for all things cooking. 

We’ve been business partners since December 2021, around the time the pandemic restrictions started lifting and life was slowly balancing out to our new normal. It was and still is our goal to offer a place within the community that you can visit and will be guaranteed to meet a friendly face, connect, and ignite your cooking inspiration. 

Whether you are building your pantry, gifting a friend, or loved one or a business that gifts their employees and clients, we are a one stop shop that will ensure you walk away with something special. We aim to help people create dishes that are effortlessly delicious and nutritious.

All of our products are sourced from only the best providers to ensure you receive the same quality of product as you do service. 

Our store is located in the Kerr Village because it is filled with so many other small businesses that give you a homey, cared for feeling every time you visit them. In the last year we have been honored to serve the community of Oakville and surrounding area by offering several other small business’ products within our store such as chutneys, hot sauces, olives, jelly’s and locally made charcuterie boards. 

We continue to expand our selections based on our customers interests so if you are a small business or know of a small business that is seeking expansion, don’t be shy to reach out, we’d love to collaborate with you.

We strive to embody a sense of community in everything we do from the products we carry to the way we interact with our customers. So, thank you for choosing us, we will always take care of you whether you are just learning to cook or a lifetime foodie; we will help you take home your ideal selections and be a friend. Our goal is to make your day better by having visited us!
