The first Beecher's Handmade Cheese shop was opened in Seattle's historic Pike Place Market. Simple machinery is used to aid in the careful process that involves using the same techniques that have been used for generations. Kurt Beecher Dammeier was a cheese lover since childhood who encouraged his mom to buy artisan cheese over the processed cheeses that were starting to overtake the wheel. He fondly remembered his grandfather and his wheels of Stilton when he named the business in 2002. By 2003, Beecher's Handmade Cheese opened its doors.

Kurt always believed it was important to eat food free from harmful preservatives and additives. He also feel it is important for people to know where their food comes from, what goes into the food and how it is made. Pike Place Market is a mecca for fresh product and handcrafted goods so it was the ideal spot for the first shop. By 2008, Kurt considered a shop in NYC and its doors opened in 2011 as a store, cafe and restaurant featuring cheese. The cheeses contain no nitrates, bovine growth hormones, hydrogenated oils and polysorbate. Instead they use the freshest ingredients around to make pure, all-natural cheeses.
