Our Story

Two people (among many) who have long thought that Reno/Sparks needed a specialty cheese shop, Laura Conrow and Peter Burge teamed up in 2011 to start the journey that ends (and begins) with Wedge – A Cheese Shop. We watched as MidTown started to draw the attention of like-minded people in our community. We are foodies and knew that an independent cheese shop would be welcome by the adventurous eater.
