Cookshop Plus West Hartford has marked its first year in business. The store, located in Hartford CT, opened its doors after co-owners Samantha and Jimmy Hines and Terry and Joanne Ryan moved to the area from Australia.
“BIRTHDAY VIBES! Happy first birthday to us!! We are so excited to be here,” the store posted on its Facebook page.
Cookshop Plus was originally established in Bowral, New South Wales, Australia in 2002, according to the company website. The business has been owned and operated by Joanne and Terry Ryan since early 2004. The Bowral business continues to operate in Australia.
In addition to kitchenware products, the store also has a coffee bar. The bar’s menu contains specialty drinks like cold brew coffee, hot chocolate and an Australian flat white.
