Kerry Sylvester was no fool for opening a new business on April fools day in the midst of the COVID shutdowns in 2020. After years of experimenting and crafting the menu for what was to become one of the fastest-growing brands, Graze Craze was born. The first store opened on April 1, 2020, in Newcastle, OK.
Now, just 2 years later, after a perfected menu with rave reviews from customers, it's time to focus on an enhanced store experience. That starts now as the original Newcastle store has launched at a new location.

So what’s next for Graze Craze? Brady Lee of United Franchise Group was recently announced as the President of Graze Craze. Through this esteemed partnership, Kerry Sylvester and the Graze Craze team is poised to bring even more life to the brand.
“Looking back to the peak of the pandemic, it was one of the most challenging times in recent history,” Kerry Sylvester, Founder of Graze Craze shared. “People lost the ability to physically connect with one another. Graze Craze provided a way for people to connect emotionally and show their love, support, and encouragement through gifting our food to health care workers, friends, family, and neighbors.”
Kerry continued, “It is wonderful to see our customers returning to a more normal lifestyle and the small part that Graze Craze plays in all those connections every day. Through our partnership with United Franchise Group, our franchisees are now bringing the values and love that Graze Craze has to more local communities.”
The Newcastle location can now be found at 2191 N Main St Suite A, Newcastle, OK 73065.
