Express Kitchens is the fastest-growing kitchen cabinet retailer in Connecticut and Massachusetts. Headquartered in Hartford, CT, Express Kitchens has just opened its 12th retail location at 1280 East Main Street in Torrington.
Owner Max Kothari credits his company’s unprecedented growth to an approach that is radically different from his competition: “Our goal is to cut out the middle man and offer true value and one-stop shopping to kitchen remodelers. Someone can walk in to any one of our stores with measurements and pick up their entire new kitchen from our Hartford warehouse in just one hour! Nobody else comes close to doing that.” His approach includes maintaining over 30,000 cabinets in 10 door styles in-stock and ready to go, as well as granite, quartz, and laminate countertops and a selection of add ons – hardware, faucets, sinks, and accessories, all available for pickup in an hour.
Kothari’s approach seems to be working: the company grew 50% from 8 stores to 12 in 2017, with plans to double in size in the first half of 2018. Express Kitchens, Kothari says, offers its own brand of all-wood Star Cabinetry and has just added the Star Stone brand, offering 4 colors of granite and 8 colors of quartz countertops to its in-stock lineup, vaulting it ahead of its big-box competitors. “People get value and a level of service from Express Kitchens that the bigger stores cannot match – personal dedication and attention to detail make all the difference.”
Express Kitchens’ headquarters is located in the north end of Hartford, where it is dedicated to community enrichment and hiring a diverse workforce that is the represents the best of what Hartford has to offer. When asked what drives the company to be successful, Kothari’s business partner says “we have the rare ability to constantly reinvent ourselves to outcompete our rivals.”
Express Kitchens has locations in Bridgeport, Brookfield, Hamden, Hartford, Newington, New London, Norwalk, Orange, Stamford, Torrington, and Waterbury, Connecticut and West Springfield, Massachusetts.
