Open Your Own Kitchen Store

Open a Cookware Store, Cooking Store, Bakeware Store or Home Kitchen Shop

Are you a foodie who loves to cook and discover new kitchen gadgets? As the owner of a kitchen store you can have a fun and rewarding career where you are paid to share your love of cooking.

When you open a kitchen store (also known as a cookware store, cooking store, bakeware store, or kitchen shop), you will be among the first to know about and use the latest in kitchen tools and gadgets.

As a kitchen store owner you will enjoy the freedom of being your own boss, selling kitchen supplies to people as passionate about cooking as you are, who value your knowledge and expert advice.

Kitchenware and cookware is a stable industry, with customers from a desirable, high-income demographic.

"This industry is doing very well. People are still cooking. … Kitchen store owners are selling a wonderful, functional practical item that’s basically recession-proof."
— Laurie O’Halloran, HomeStyle Magazine
Your kitchen store can give customers a place to learn, to meet other cooks, and to get the items they need to make gourmet meals at home, from hors d’oeuvres and breads to grilled entrees, exotic desserts and even fancy coffees.
When you open a kitchen store, you will have the freedom to choose the kinds of kitchen products you want to sell. You might choose to offer something for everyone with a multi-purpose cookware and kitchen supply store, or you can specialize in any area you are passionate about.

For example, if you love baking and cake decorating, you can open a bakeware store. Adore grilling? Open a barbecue store. Want to promote healthy eating and sustainable foods? Sustainable cookware is a growing trend that can bring you plenty of customers.

You can also make your kitchen store more popular and increase your profits with cooking classes, book signings by cookbook authors, open houses, cooking demonstrations, and other fun events.
