A little bit about the Owner

The Port Box Company – Nikki

Nikki was working for a large company on the outskirts of Boston up until towards the end of 2020, when quite suddenly she was laid off from her job as Customer Service Center Manager after 13 years of working for the company.   At the same time Nikki and her husband had just sold their family home in Andover, MA to move up to Kennebunkport in Maine full time, where they had a property and loved the outdoor lifestyle it offered.

This unexpected layoff enabled Nikki to change course and re-evaluate her career options and she decided to take a leap of faith and set up her own business.  Having always had a love of cooking and entertaining she came up with the idea of delivering charcuterie boxes to the coastal towns in and around the Kennebunkport area.  Nikki’s background in catering and cooking goes back to her days of helping her friend in the UK some twenty years ago where she cooked for royalty on several occasions along with a certain Beatle whose name begins with R! If you want to know more about the ‘coffee mug’ comments story regarding Princess Diana then please go ahead and ask Nikki when you see her!!

Fast forward to now and The Port Box Company:

  • Nikki will be offering a box in which there will be everything needed for a delicious mouthwatering Charcuterie Board. It will include personally selected items ……
  • A Vegetarian box will include 4 delicious kinds of cheese as well as everything listed above, other than the meats.
  • Your order will be delivered directly to your door.

When you have friends over all you need to do is unwrap the contents and pop them onto a charcuterie board, without the hassle of shopping individually for all the items.

You could decide to take it to the beach to watch the sunset on a sunny evening or perhaps you have a rental property and would like to leave it for your guests for the week.

Do not worry if you cannot find your board or it’s the wrong size as we have a selection of locally made and sourced (in Biddeford) artisan hard wood boards to choose from.

Nikki will be working out of the Fork Food Lab in Portland and delivering daily, to the coastal towns of Ogunquit, Wells, Kennebunk, Arundel, Kennebunkport, Biddeford Pool and Portland.
