Kitchen retailer Kutchenhaus is set to open its first ever store in Ashford in September, marking its 34th showroom to open in the UK.
The store, at Pluto House on Station Road, will open its doors and have a welcome event on 1st September, serving customers across Kent and surrounding areas.
The new showroom will harness the latest technology to provide virtual appointments and use its new online 3D planning and design tool to create kitchens remotely for local customers that do not wish to come to the store.
Boasting 1500 square foot of retail space, the Ashford store will employ two staff in customer services and kitchen design. The shop will be managed by Jake Ford, who has substantial previous experience in a property development company.
Kutchenhaus (www.kutchenhaus.co.uk) is owned by Nobilia, Europe’s largest kitchen manufacturer, providing stylish, German-designed ranges at the lowest possible price, without compromising on quality. Customers in Ashford have the added peace of mind that kitchens they order now will be delivered on time, with minimal disruption currently being experienced to the firm’s supply chain and manufacturing process in Germany.
Jake Ford, business owner of Kutchenhaus in Ashford, commented on the opening:
“The team is incredibly excited to be opening the brand-new store in Ashford, our friendly team is looking forward to welcoming the community to the official launch on Tuesday 1st September.
“It has taken two months to completely transform the space to Kutchenhaus’ high-quality standards. We are looking forward to meeting shoppers and introducing them to the new showroom. Ashford is one of the fastest growing towns in England and has great links to the surrounding towns and villages as well as to London, on a main road with a constant steady flow of passing traffic.”
Sean Ford, national head of sales and operations for Kutchenhaus, said:
“Kutchenhaus is on an ambitious growth path over the next 2-3 years, however being in the grip of a global pandemic has certainly presented some challenges and even positively altered the way we do business in some cases. It is therefore extremely satisfying that Jake and the team are now in a position to be able to open their first store in Ashford and offer local customers the opportunity to plan and design their dream kitchen.
“We are very excited to be part of the new showroom opening in Ashford a community we believe is in a good location and is connected well to the surrounding areas. The new store will no doubt offer an engaging store environment and deliver a high-quality product, a market opportunity which we know is currently in high demand. We wish Jake and the team all the best and wait to see their future success.”
Established in 2004, Kutchenhaus is a franchise business owned by Europe’s largest kitchen manufacturer, Nobilia. Customers can both buy online at www.kutchenhaus.co.uk or one of its 33 showrooms across the UK.
