All About Olives: Lynne Twombly


Tasty, gourmet stuffed olives are Lynne Twombly’s bread and butter. So are pickled vegetables, extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegars and assorted housewares. These culinary must-haves make for a thriving business on Bay Street in the heart of Old Town Florence.

 

Owning and operating a retail shop was a new adventure for Lynne when All About Olives opened in 2011. Starting small, she has continued to expand her unique offerings to create a successful operation.

 

All About Olives is one of the three businesses that Lynne and her husband, Dave, own in Florence. In addition to the olive shop, they own and operate Socks to a T and Central Coast Disposal. Operating three companies means that they need a bank they can count on, which is why they have relied on Oregon Pacific Bank for the past two decades.

 

“We know the people who work there, and right from the beginning they made us feel like we—and our business—mattered to them,” Lynne says. “They have been here for us the whole 20 years we have been in business.”

 

As a small business owner, Lynne appreciates the personal local service that Oregon Pacific Bank provides. The Twombly’s rely on us for their business checking and savings, merchant services, point-of-sale services, credit cards, line of credit and mortgage loans.

 

“They have been instrumental in assisting us with our merchant services, and if we need any financial assistance in the slow season, they are there for us,” Lynne says.

 

Putting her trust in us for her financial needs means that Lynne can focus on expressing her love of food through her olive business—she loves getting to know her customers and is always tempting them with her tasty offerings. Her customers, in turn, appreciate that they can try her top-quality products before buying them.

 

We are big fans of All About Olives, and we love working with Lynne and seeing her and her store prosper. And, did we mention, her olives are outstanding!
