Kitchen retailer Kütchenhaus has opened its 50th UK showroom in Potters Bar following a year of intense growth. The milestone store is situated on the High Street and officially opened its doors on Monday 14th February, and is set to serve residents across Potters Bar, Barnet, Boreham Wood, Watford, and the surrounding areas of Hertfordshire. To celebrate the occasion, the business held a ribbon cutting ceremony, featuring the owners of the showroom and Kam Bharadwa, the sales and operations manager.
Headquartered in the UK, in Rochdale, Kütchenhaus has opened over 15 showrooms in the UK during the past 12 months – a growth of 43% year-on-year. The business has also expanded into Australia and the US with four showrooms including in Sydney and Miami. To improve its offering, Kütchenhaus has implemented a 3D online planning tool and private appointments to go with its service, which has seen the specialists report a 68% increase in sales growth, which the company says is its most successful year yet.
The Potters Bar showroom is co-owned by Thana Yasotharan, Toma Navickiene and Arminas Navickas, who have more than 50 years’ experience in the kitchen and design industry between them. The store boasts 1,100sq ft of retail space, will include four kitchen displays, bathroom, bedroom and living room displays, a customisation hub where customers can personalise every inch of their kitchen, as well as high-end technology from partners AEG and Quooker to view the very latest appliances.
Toma Navickiene, business owner of Kütchenhaus Potters Bar, said: “We are incredibly happy to have opened the 50th Kutchenhaus showroom in Potters Bar as the area will benefit from having a quality German product on the market. We love the brand, respect the values and its family roots. Our business provides customers with the chance to have their dream kitchen and home designed in one place, which makes it as easy as possible.
“There are major plans for the business in the future and right now we want to focus on showing our high quality to Potters Bar and nearby areas. Our showroom is in a prominent part of town and has taken nearly three months to transform. We are so excited to finally welcome local customers to see the fantastic displays that are available to them across the home and are eager to see what the next year has in store for us.”
Sean Ford, national head of sales and operations for Kütchenhaus, said: “We’re incredibly proud to celebrate this milestone after a challenging two years for UK retail. The commitment of our franchisees to continue providing a high-quality service with incredible attention to detail is reflected in the growth of the company and satisfaction of our clients. We have ambitious growth targets for the future, with expansion plans both within our kitchen ranges and our number of showrooms. We wish Thana, Toma and Arminas all the best with their showroom and look forward to watching them succeed over the coming years.”
