Kitchen retailer Kutchenhaus has opened its 36th UK showroom in Petersfield.
The Kutchenhaus franchise business is owned by Nobilia and the co-owners of the new store in Petersfield, Hampshire, Andy Barwell and Peter Turner already have two franchises to their name, making this their third opening in three years.
Petersfield showroom manager John Le Masurier, who has more than 15 year’s experience as a showroom manager. The store has 1,000sq ft of retail space and will employ three members of staff in customer services and kitchen design.
Barwell said of the opening: “The team is incredibly excited to be opening the brand-new store in Petersfield and are looking forward to welcoming the community to the official launch on Saturday, October 31. We plan on having a socially distanced launch, where we will invite people to the showroom to witness a cooking event led by a top chef.”
Sean Ford, national head of sales and operations for Kutchenhaus commented: “Kutchenhaus is on an ambitious growth path over the next two to three 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 Andy, Paul and the team are now in a position to be able to open a new store in Petersfield 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 Petersfield a community we believe is in a good vibrant 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 the team all the best and can’t wait to see their future success.”
