Established in 1989, Canapés operated at 77 South Market Street in historic downtown Frederick, Canapés thrived but the desire to pursue growth brought opportunities outside of Frederick. Canapés made the difficult decision to relocate out of Frederick City moving the entire operation. ML Carroll came to the realization that Frederick would always be Canapés’ home. Personally and professionally missing the Frederick connection, vibe and vitality, ML Carroll & staff returned home to their beloved Frederick in 2013. Canapés new location in Highland Tech Park is a vast 7400 sq feet housing our central kitchen, warehouse, laundry, office, showroom and the 550 Grab&Go café.
