Sen. McCrory Praises Express Kitchens in Hartford

HARTFORD – On the day that Express Kitchens announced it is expanding from Connecticut into Massachusetts with eight new showrooms, and is now powering its entire Weston Street facility with a 626 kilivolt solar power plant on its rooftop, state Senator Doug McCrory (D-Hartford) joined a group of state and local officials to offer high praise for Express Kitchens founder and CEO Max Kothari.

“Max has been around for years. He believes in hiring people from the community and giving back. He’s an excellent role model and a smart businessman,” Sen. McCrory said.

Express Kitchens is headquartered in a 130,000-square-foot warehouse on Weston Street and employs nearly 150 people in Connecticut; its expansion into Massachusetts next year will double the size of the business. The company is also looking for another half-million square feet of space in Hartford to expand even further.
“We look at our growth beyond simply physical store expansion,” Kothari said regarding his business expansion plans. “We’re elevating every aspect of how we serve our customers, including reimagining our stores, opening new digitally-enabled stores, introducing new range of kitchens, pursuing an aggressive growth strategy and transforming the way we replenish our stores and get products to our customers. The steps we continue to take are with a focus on better positioning Express Kitchens as an iconic brand on the national stage.”
