Linda Wyner, owner of Pleasanton, CA-based Pans On Fire, revealed to GOURMET INSIDER® that she has decided to place the independent gourmet housewares store up for sale. Wyner explained that she is planning to retire out of state and explore different interests.
“In 13 years, I’ve met so many people who’ve help me along the way and I know I’ve touched the lives of countless others. I’ve seen folks of disparate backgrounds share a meal and become friends or talk about how a simple kitchen tool transformed their cooking and inspire others in the telling. It has been a blessing,” she said.
Wyner added, “The store has enjoyed wonderful local and national acclaim [through]the years and would not be as successful without the support, mentorship and encouragement of other store owners, HTI Buying Group, media contacts and vendors, as well as the community of customers who have inspired us to become better each year.”
Pans On Fire celebrated its 12th anniversary last November. Wyner has encouraged interested parties to contact her for more information regarding the sale of the store.
