Founded in 2002, the big-format stores aim for good customer service and selling the best brands.

Formerly a chef trained in England, director Chris Murphy has always been passionate about food so it was a natural progression to open kitchenware stores.

With six stores ” in Cannington, Cockburn, Malaga, Melville, Midland and Osborne Park ” the 1000sqm Joondalup store was the missing piece to the puzzle.

‘Joondalup was one of the only areas we didn’t have a presence and is an area of growth,’ he said.

‘We’ve been planning to open in Joondalup for years, but it has been a matter of waiting for the right opportunity. We’re very happy to finally be here.’

Mr Murphy is happy to let some of Australia’s top celebrity chefs wear the kitchen whites, hosting the likes of Ian Hewitson, Pete Evans, Adriano Zumbo, Gabriel Gate and Anna Gare at his stores.
