A new German kitchen manufacturer is coming to Ashford, taking over a former bicycle shop.
Kutchenhaus will be open its 34th UK showroom in Station Road on September 1, but customers can also use virtual consultations and an online 3D planning and design tool.
The 1500 sq. ft shop has been completely transformed over two months from its previous role as Spiral Cycles, which was broken into just after closing in September.
The new tenant - whose supply chain and manufacturing process is based in Germany - will be employing two staff members.
Manager Jake Ford said: "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."
Sean Ford, national head of sales and operations for Kutchenhaus, said: “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 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.
"We wish Jake and the team all the best and wait to see their future success.”
