ABERDEEN kitchen retailer, Kutchenhaus, has reported a 94% growth in year-on-year revenue.
The store, on Holburn Street, is managed by franchisee owners Helene Campbell and Richard Curran, who have operated the business since opening their first store in Laurencekirk in December 2016.
They currently employ four members of staff and are now looking at further expansion in the coming months with a new designer.
The business is now forecasting an even stronger 12 months ahead as it looks to build further on its success.
Due to closure from lockdown, Helene and Richard had to change how they operated the showrooms. Thanks to online appointments, their success continued as May and June proved to be fantastic months for sales. They plan to continue using online appointments after lockdown for people that may live too far from the store to visit.
Helene said: “The current situation brought new challenges with it, but it is testament to the team that we have seen sales rise.
“We pride ourselves on offering that personal touch to customers and feel that has benefitted us along with the expertise that we provide which has given us a good reputation in the area.
“Technology has also helped during recent times and provides us with a chance to broaden our catchment area to benefit future customers.
“We look forward to the next 12 months.”
