2021 Rising Star Award Nominee: Heidi Gardner Peyton, Peyton Place Restaurant & Peyton Place Products, Orford, New Hampshire
Heidi offers a takeout menu, food products, and off-site catering through her Orford, NH businesses, Peyton Place Restaurant and Peyton Place Products. She wants to expand her business because the future of the restaurant industry is uncertain and she needs to diversify her business model.
Heidi came to CWE through Vital Communities in White River Junction, VT and continues to use us as a resource. Peyton Place Restaurant is 28 years old, but Heidi is in the process of launching her product and prepared foods line. By 2025, she hopes to be a production facility with a 5-day week operation, as well as have a small retail space to offer her products and prepared foods. Peyton Place Restaurant is a family affair and supports local producers and suppliers.
