After months of planning, training and mentorship with the store’s founders, Kara Hansen took over ownership of Ginger’s Kitchenware in January and recently rebranded the store under a new name, Kara’s Kitchenware. The name change, however, ultimately reflects on Hansen’s desire not to drastically change the business, but to build from the long-term culture of community established by the previous owners, Jaime and Ginger Aguirre. It also aligns with her plans to grow and diversify many of the products and services offered at the store, like the famous cooking classes.
“We have had so many customers who have begged us to start culinary and cooking classes back up and to make them true learning experiences,” Hansen said. “Things like learning how to make pasta, how to make bread, pastry classes, basic knife skills … whatever people want to learn. We will be bringing all that back.” She also has two chefs on staff to help with classes as well as provide professional insight to her and Kara’s Kitchenware customers. Check out her upcoming cooking classes.
Kara’s Kitchen provides a shopping experience for anyone searching for anything ‘kitchen’ with customer service being most important. If they don’t have what you’re looking for, they will try and find it!
