Gracie’s Lunchbox has been selected as the City’s November 2021 Business Spotlight, part of the Office of Economic Development’s B3 (Building Better Businesses) program.

Gracie’s Lunchbox is located in the historic Cherry Hills Plaza at 28089 Bradley Rd. While one of the newer amenities in the plaza that officially opened their doors in 2017, they have become a staple in the community.

Offering delicious entrees, sandwiches, and sides along with decadent desserts, this local favorite is a standout destination for healthy, hearty, homestyle meals. Whether it be a quick and tasty lunch, a charcuterie board for your weekend gathering or a fully catered event with a chef, Gracie’s Lunchbox has something to offer everyone!

“Our small businesses are the backbone of our community. Their generosity and pride towards organizations in our city does not go unnoticed,” said District 1 Councilmember Bob Karwin. “From providing gift cards for Parent Teacher Associations and school activities to sponsoring lunches for senior events, Gracie’s Lunchbox embodies the mission of our Business Spotlight Program; going above and beyond the call of business to serve our community.”

Chef and Owner Allison Cazarin’s generosity can be seen throughout the community. She regularly donates her time and cuisine to a variety of charitable causes in Menifee, including programs for youth and seniors, as well as school and community events. For example, Gracie’s Lunchbox donates to the Sun City Civic Shuffle Club, Sun City Discovery Days, Mt. San Jacinto College, Sun City Garden Club, Menifee Valley Chamber of Commerce, Harvest Hill STEAM Academy Parent Teacher Association (PTA), Heritage High School Football Team, and more!
