“What really makes me feel good is that people come into the shop and they just go, ‘Wow! This is an awesome shop!’ We cover all bases. We have a local guy who does baking for us. Enjoy wine tastings every two weeks. We get literally 40 to 60 people who come to those. It’s more of a party than informational, so that’s fun.”
Owner Mark Laanen was a successful Midwest restaurateur for over three decades when the lure of Palm Springs beckoned him. “I came to Palm Springs to visit a friend,” he recounts with a rapid-fire enthusiasm. “And I fell in love with it. I literally went back to Wisconsin, sold the restaurants, sold my house, and moved here! That was 12 years ago.”
Van Laanen strives to inject a personal connection into his daily dealings. “We’re a little specialty store, but we also specialize in our customer service. I mean, we really take care of our guests. Everybody knows our products, from the wines to the cheeses to the meats, and we let them try everything in the store just to make sure they like it!”
Whenever we’re hosting guests, we turn to On the Mark for one of their infamous charcuterie platters. Meticulously curated and detailed, their platters are a work of art, and sure to please your fusiest guests with a yummy selection of cheeses, meats, olives and more!
Call To Action
Mark likes to boast, “I think everyone that comes to Palm Springs should definitely come and check the shop out. They’ll absolutely love it! We have something for everybody.” And we couldn’t agree more!
