The Rolling Pin Kitchen Emporium, based in Brandon, FL, is marking its 25th anniversary. To celebrate the milestone, the independent gourmet housewares store is hosting a sale.
“Thank you for your support over the past 25 years. Without you there would be no us! Shop with us all weekend long,” the store posted in its newsletter.
Having begun retail life as a franchisee, Rolling Pin Kitchen Emporium managed to survive the demise of the original franchise, the only former franchisee to do so, and found renewed life around a new identity as a culinary education center for its community. The combined skills of Chef Dave West and his merchandise-savvy wife, Karen, have helped Rolling Pin become a fixture in its Tampa-area community.
