Frankie Muniz Has A New Job That Has Nothing To Do With Hollywood
Hint: it involves olive oil!
Frankie Muniz and his fiancée are embarking on a new adventure together. Marriage? Yes, of course. But before they say “I do” and become life partners, they’re becoming business partners.
Muniz and fiancée Paige Price are the new owners of Outrageous Olive Oils & Vinegars, a premium olive oil and vinegar store in Scottsdale, Arizona.
The “Malcolm in the Middle” star has swapped his acting career to be a shop owner, which he seems to especially enjoy considering it’s something he can do alongside Price.
“My fiancée and I were looking for something to do together, and it happened to be that this was available — the previous owners were moving on to another venture. We scooped it up, and here we are,” he told 12 News.
They announced the change of ownership on the store’s Instagram:

His celeb status will likely be a huge draw for the store, but he’s as concerned with that as he is with ensuring that his customers get the best product possible.
“You taste it, you like it — amazing. But, if you have questions about what you could pair it with or you have questions about health benefits, we can give you that information. Maybe you can leave the store and help somebody else learn about olive oil,” he told 12 News.
He even responded to a star-struck customer who reached out via Twitter to confirm that yes, you did just buy olive oil from Frankie Muniz, but also, we hope you love the product:
You did. Thanks for coming into @paigey_price and my store. Hope you guys like it!

You can get a peek at the store location and learn more about Muniz’s new business venture in this video from the 12 News YouTube channel:
To hear his fiancée tell it, Muniz has come a long way from his burger-loving days. “Getting him to eat a salad was like the world was ending,” Price told AZ Central. But now, the couple loves experimenting with dressings and marinades.
Being a full-fledged business owner and olive oil connoisseur is keeping them busy. “We live and breathe this store right now. It’s the only thing we have time for. But we love it,” Muniz told AZ Central.
And it sounds like they’re the perfect complement to one another, both in life and as business partners.
“I think in the end, we cancel out each other’s weaknesses,” Price told AZ Central. “Where Frankie might not be on top of something, I’m on top of it. Or if I’m not on top of something, Frankie always has my back.”
The way they bring out each other’s strong suits is a major reason why Price said “yes” to Muniz in the first place. She posted to Instagram, “Francisco Muniz IV, you’re more than a dream to me. You teach me every day, you compliment me when I’m at my worst, and you push me past the edge but you’re there to pick me up when I start showing signs of falling”:

When you’re a little girl, you dream of marrying the man of your dreams. You think of all these extravagant things from the way he asks you, to the dress you’re going to wear, to the music you’re going to dance to with your father. Sometimes, reality has a tendency to overstep your dreams and really surprise you. Francisco Muniz IV, you’re more than a dream to me. You teach me every day, you compliment me when I’m at my worst, and you push me past the edge but you’re there to pick me up when I start showing signs of falling. I love every piece of you, and I appreciate you more and more every single day. I truly cannot wait to be your wife ♥️ P.S. You’re officially the master of proposals. 143. P.P.S. I ugly cried so hard that I can’t even post the pictures so… there’s that..
Here’s to the happy couple and their new olive oil business venture!
