Ettienne Leibman opened Leibman's Wine & Fine Foods in Houston, Texas in partnership with her husband Ralph in 1979 after emigrating from South Africa. On December 20, 2003, this Houston specialty food store, a labor of love for 24 years, had burned to the ground just in time for the holiday rush. Ettienne Leibman had spent 24 years of blood, sweat, and tears building a business, and in a few hours, it was destroyed. Leibman immediately vowed to resurrect her store.
Houston's Premier Deli & Specialty Food Store & Grocery
On December 2, 2004, Leibman came back with a bang, cutting the ribbon on a sparkling 11,300-square-foot Leibman's Wine & Fine Foods, more than double the size of the previous store. With the opportunity to build her beloved Houston specialty food store from scratch, Leibman and her team have created a stellar market.
With extra space and an ever-increasing customer count, Leibman is eager to bring in more merchandise. She concludes, "I will never forget the devastation of the fire, but it has resulted in a rebirth of our business."
