About Us

More Than Olives is a small business owned by Ken and Joan Masegian. We had an idea in 2007 to leave our corporate careers (well mostly) and develop a business that we could run until retirement. We stumbled across a small company that offered California Olive Oils and complimentary products. We tasted their amazing, fresh Olive Oils and were hooked! In 2008, with the help of friends and family, we opened our original store in El Dorado Hills. Our son Jacob joined us in running the store and customers loved his creative suggestions of how to use our products in recipes. In 2013, we moved the store to our current location in Historic Folsom and in October of 2020, we took the store independent.

The move to Historic Folsom was the best thing we could have done for our business. Being part of this greater community has grown our business and allowed us to expand our offerings to our customers. It is rewarding to see so many of our customers returning to refill their bottles with our great Olive Oils and Vinegars. Visitors to the Historic District enjoy experiencing our store. For many of them, it is the first time they have had the opportunity to sample a variety of Olive Oils before purchasing, and of course, order from us when they run out.

Our goal is to provide you, our customer, with the best customer service, outstanding products, and any culinary guidance you might want.

What Our Customers Say

  • “I live in Hawaii and purchased More Than Olives garlic olive oil and BlackBerry balsamic vinegar during one of my California visits. I have never found a better flavored oil and vinegar from any other manufacturer yet, and I have decided that mail ordering from More Than Olives is now the only option I choose to pursue. I have recently tried the blood orange olive oil which is also great. Plus, the customer service is awesome. I am treated like family and I highly recommend More Than Olives to anyone who wants a superb product of the highest quality.”
    – Debi Lowe
  • “Everything I have purchased from this store is DELICIOUS!!! The tapenade, the lamb and rosemary sausage, the frog balls (Brussels sprouts) and the balsamics are all really amazing, but if you haven’t tried the Jalepeno Olive Oil you are seriously missing out. I put it on everything! Toast, eggs, cottage cheese, sandwiches, salads, potatoes, veggies, you name it. I could probably drink it if it wasn’t oil. 😍 Please check this place out you will not regret it. So many products and such friendly staff. The customer service is grand and you are always taken care of by someone you can tell loves their job.”
    – Michelle Higgins
  • “Their product selection is amazing, and the wonderful helpful folks that help you are exceedingly amazing! Our far-and-away favorite is the aged, bulk balsamic vinegar from Modena, Italy. That, coupled with the tremendous variety of bulk extra virgin olive oils, makes for the perfect pairing. We are so grateful that this establishment lives within the heart of old Folsom.”
    – Nikki Lucas
  • “Oh my gosh!! This oil is from heaven and so good.”
    – Cindy Qualls
  • “More than Olives has the best variety of oils and vinegars! And to assist everyone, they have the greatest variety of recipes to help you know how to use their varieties. The staff is very knowledgeable and always helpful. If you are lucky you will find your “go to” recipe like the black bean and corn salad. Always in my refrigerator!”
    – Roger Hartsock
  • “I love the variety of products but I can’t be without the lemon and the basil olive oils. The lemon oil makes summer vegetables a treat. And their basil olive oil saute’d with garlic and small tomatoes becomes a delicate summer dressing for angel hair pasta.”
    – Nancy McMahon
  • “This is a great little place. The staff is super friendly and helpful. We were visiting from GA and couldn’t take the large bottles of oil or vinegar back with us on the plane so they helped us pick out our favorites and shipped them to us. It all arrived in perfect condition. Everything is so good but our favorite is the Sex on the Beach balsamic vinegar! If you’re in Folsom you have to go! ❤️”
    – Jennifer Pearson
  • “Delicious and aromatic California olive oils and highly flavorful balsamic vinegar varieties! The employees are always friendly and helpful. I really appreciate that I can refill bottles too.”
    – Felicia James
  • “The olive oils and vinegars are so tasty. I love how easy it is to refill the bottles. I am looking forward to salads, marinades and more this summer as fresh fruits and vegetable become available. Love the staff and love the quality of the products.”
    – Tonia Nichols
  • “This is one of our favorite local shops. The variety they offer is unmatched. We HAVE to have at least one of their Balsamics and Olive Oils in our house at all times. (usually 2 or 3 tho because it’s so hard to go in and just buy one🤣) We got almost all of our Christmas shopping done here last year because there is truly something for everyone. We got dry rubs for our brother, BBQ sauce for our dad, and jams for our grandparents. The staff are always so friendly and full of suggestions. You can taste anything in the store which is so awesome. I could go on forever. Definitely check it out if you’ve never been!”
    – Brianna Smith
  • “I love More Than Olives!! The owners and staff are exceptionally friendly. I have over 15 full size bottles and they taught me how to clean them, dry them and bring back to trade or refill! And boy do I….they have quality oils and vinegars as well as wonderful gift sets that I’ve had several friends start going there! 💛 The recipe ideas are awesome too! I can’t say enough about this place!”
