our story

Everyone we meet always asks, “how did you get into seafood”? Well, the answer is simple… as home chefs and avid foodies, we found a massive need in southeastern Michigan for fresh, sustainable seafood. And so the journey began…

Co-founders and husband/wife team, Matthew Wiseman and Staci Hayman have each spent 20+ years each in the restaurant industry. From humble beginnings of Matthew starting as a dishwasher and Staci as a server, we have each worked every facet of the restaurant industry and understand the needs of our clients.

Therefore, we operate 7 days/week, offering our chefs the flexibility in ordering by morning hours and process fresh to order.
