Innovate, build a market niche, and watch sales take off! In 1991, Jonathan King and Jim Stott made some nice jams and vinegars. They were so good, in fact, that they set up a 3-foot by 3-foot card table at local farmers markets. That was 1991. Fast forward through lots of growth, great amazing products, and winning nearly every category at the Fancy Food Shows, and Stonewall Kitchen of York, Maine, is quite an industry. It was built, however, one relationship at a time.
The focus is on quality and innovation. Jim and Jon, whom I met about ten years ago are sticklers for great presentation, great quality, and a thrilled consumer. Their formula has worked, and they have surrounded themselves with top people.
Since 2000, they have a 55,000 square foot headquarters which also showcases their first-ever cafe. They have a thriving catalog and web business plus eight company stores. All because they took a chance with a good idea, a lot of hard work, innovation, and a committment to their valued customer.
With a brand focus on wholesome, healthy, and tasty ingredients – plus customer service that is unparalleled, the brand can only grow even further beyond their wildest dreams.
