Cooks’Wares, an independent gourmet housewares store located in Cincinnati, OH, has marked its 25th year in business. The store was founded by Paul and Mary Fricke and is now run by second generation brother and sister team, Steve and Sharon Fricke. At the height of the business, the brand had three stores. It now operates a single location.
To mark the quarter century in business, Cooks’Wares is hosting a customer appreciation event on May 6 from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. During the event, radio personality Marilyn Harris will be broadcasting her “Cooking with Marilyn” radio show live from the store; there will also be demonstrations, cake and chances to enter for prizes.
