Cranford Businesses: Working Together, Everyone Benefits

One of the best things about Downtown Cranford is how our local businesses support each other. There’s no shortage of ways that our business owners find to work together. This is great, not only for our businesses, but for customers who are exposed to even more of the great merchants that Downtown Cranford offers. Here are just a few examples of local love.

  • think d’sign print – This printing company has worked with a number of Cranford businesses supplying them with uniforms for their employees. Here’s a picture of the shirts they created for Sofi’s Color Lounge:

  • Both Urban Burger and Sub-Ology use bread from Breadsmith for their sandwiches. No wonder those food spots turn out such consistently great products!
  • Cheese…Please! also carries Breadsmith baguettes which are the perfect pairing with one of their delicious cheeses.
  • Barry, the owner of Kilkenny House, has made it a point to support other local businesses. This past year he held his holiday party at Lidia’s Cuban Kitchen. Also, check out the shadowbox hanging in Kilkenny – it was done by Stefanie at The Artist Framer.


  • Fire Me Up! has a number of events at their studio and they often have them catered by a local business. The studio is also involved in charity efforts which local businesses often donate gift baskets to.
  • Atlantic Beach Soap Co. and Belladonna’s have partnered up by selling goods from the other store that they feel their customers would be interested in.
  • Cranford’s very own Dreyer Farms carries a number of products from local businesses. The farm offers bottled juices from Fresh Press Juice Co., as well as a variety of breads from Breadsmith. Talk about one-stop shopping!

  • During the recent Summer Sidewalk Sale Fresh Press Juice Co. held an event in their store and used mason jars from Artemisia to mix drinks in. How stylish!
  • Romola’s Seafood & Grille offers its customers the option to order wine from NJ Wine Seller down the block. Not only are the prices reasonable but it’s a great option for customers who forget to bring their own wine.
