The Story of Cooks & Company

Founded in the 1970s, Cooks & Company launched as a hardware and joinery manufacturing business. During the 1980s our Managing Director, Peter Cook, took the decision to venture into handmade kitchen furniture. As the kitchen became the heart of the home, the demand for our furniture grew and Cooks & Company took on a new facet.

In addition to cabinetry, a focal point of any luxury kitchen are the appliances. We have now established ourselves as the UK's largest premium appliance retailer.

Our 20,000 sq. ft showroom based in Newark, Nottinghamshire, has a dedicated kitchen and interiors showroom and a separate appliance showroom showcasing over 40 brands.
