Marquee Brands has made its acquisition of Sur La Table official and the company is now looking toward the future with the kitchenware specialty store.
Company officials said Sur La Table will allow Marquee to build upon its Home and Culinary portfolio by complementing and lending new strategies and verticals in addition to unique product opportunities to its Martha Stewart and Emeril Lagasse brands.
“(Sur La Table’s) storied legacy along with its multi-channel platform featuring experiential brick and mortar stores, a thriving e-commerce business, and unparalleled education offerings presented an incredibly compelling opportunity,” said Carolyn D’Angelo, President of the Home Division at Marquee Brands. “We believe a revitalized Sur La Table will thrive in a post-Covid-19 retail environment.”
Founded in 1972, Sur La Table became a preeminent brand and curator of the finest culinary products and tools to professional and home chefs alike.
In addition to serving as a retailer to global brands in the sector, Sur La Table is also the largest provider of non-degree cooking schools in the United States with over 650,000 students growing at 19% per year serving as a pioneer in experiential retail and unprecedented customer loyalty.
