COVID-19 shutdown in Hawaii pushes Oahu couple to launch new business

Creating cheese and charcuterie boards has long been Cheryl DeAngelo’s passion. But with no gatherings allowed due to COVID-19, she was stuck making to-go boxes for family and friends.

“When they couldn’t come over and we couldn’t spend time with them, I wanted to figure out a way to just make them feel like we were thinking about them and they were always on our minds,” DeAngelo recently told Hawaii News Now. “I would create the cheese and charcuterie and put it in boxes and deliver it to their homes.”

Over the holidays, she and her husband passed out 20 boxes to loved ones, but then outside requests started to pour in. The DeAngelos ended up making roughly 400 deliveries in a span of two weeks and a new business — Bubbly and Bleu — was born.
