Kitchen retailer opens new showroom in West Byfleet as it edges closer to 50 stores


Kitchen retailer Kutchenhaus has opened its first ever store in West Byfleet, Surrey this month, providing stylish, German-designed bespoke kitchens. The store on Station Approach, officially opened its doors on 8th November at 09:30am.

The showroom is co-owned by Marc Maritz and his son Tony Maritz, who have dreamt of owning a business together for years and are now able to pursue that ambition with their own Kutchenhaus franchise.

With a combined 45 years in the industry, Marc has more than thirty years’ experience designing bespoke kitchens, including owning four stores in Cape Town, South Africa. Tony is a seasoned entrepreneur and owns two other businesses but specialises in supplying kitchen solutions to trade and has hands on experience fitting kitchens, which is a value on its own.

The duo’s business partners for the showroom are Chelsea footballer and midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek and his brother Isaac Loftus-Cheek.

The building boasts 800 square foot of retail space, has designer displays including the latest colour trends and storage solutions and features appliances from brands such as AEG, Neff, Caple and Smeg.

Kutchenhaus is owned by Nobilia, Europe’s largest kitchen manufacturer, and provides stylish, German designed ranges which are built to last following 70 years of technology and product development. Residents in West Byfleet can now benefit from the highest quality units and features including products from Blanco and Quooker. Every kitchen is bespoke with designers offering innovative solutions for any requirements a customer has.

Marc commented on the opening:

“It has always been a goal of ours to run a business in the UK together and we are delighted to finally make this come true in such a beautiful area. Once we saw the location in West Byfleet, we jumped at the chance to open the store. We are in a prime position which has several fantastic links to nearby towns.

“A lot of hard work has been put into preparing the space, with it taking eight weeks to transform to the highest-quality standards. We can’t wait to welcome the local community through our doors to show them the fantastic displays on offer, and we love the idea of opening more showrooms in nearby areas once we are settled here”.

Sean Ford, national head of sales and operations for Kutchenhaus, said:

“The past 18 months have been challenging but Kutchenhaus has adapted and continued to experience fantastic growth which we hope will continue over the next 2-3 years. It is great to see that Marc and Tony are able to open a new store in West Byfleet and offer local customers the opportunity to plan and design their dream kitchen.

“The new showroom will no doubt offer an engaging environment and deliver a high-quality product, a market opportunity which we know is currently in high demand. We wish the team all the best and wait to see their future success.”
