MARLTON, NJ [September 27, 2019] – Vantage Real Estate Services is pleased to announce that local prepared food retailer, Chef Crafted Kitchen, signed a long-term lease in Voorhees, NJ. Chef Crafted Kitchen is located within the Cooper Corner Shopping Center, a newly renovated center with excellent visibility on a highly trafficked intersection of Kresson-Gibbsboro and Cooper Roads, a main thoroughfare in Voorhees.
Ken Richardson, Advisor at Vantage RES, worked closely with the landlord, Raab Family Partnership, and the tenant, to secure a location that fit Chef Graham Zanow’s specific requirements for the business.
Chef Crafted Kitchen is an elevated prepared food store inspired by Zanow’s time living in the Napa Valley California. The cuisine is approachable, and its purpose is to “give time back to its customers.” Chef Crafted Kitchen is a unique shopping experience for its customers. The décor will reflect the warmth of roadside eateries in Napa. Chef Crafted Kitchen is a 100% from-scratch kitchen. Menu items will include freshly baked goods, dips and spreads, salads, wraps, soups and entrees. Pre-prepared breakfast, lunch and dinner options will be available. Local ingredients will be highlighted, as Zanow believes in supporting local communities.
“Vantage RES RES provides a commercial real estate experience that is caring and fulfilling for the client, my broker Ken Richardson was exceptional as he displayed patience and explored all options for Chef Created Kitchen” Zanow stated.
About Chef Crafted Kitchen: Chef Crafted Kitchen is owned and operated by Culinary Institute of America graduates Graham and Andrea Zanow. The two culinarians met at chef school in 2000.While at the C.I.A the Zanow ‘s trained under certified master chefs and became classically French trained. Graham and Andrea did an internship at Roy Yamaguchi’s in Maui, HI. At Roy’s they learned Pacific Rim and Hawaiian fusion cuisine. The flavors were exciting and new, the quality of ingredients especially the fish were immaculate. After graduating from the C.I.A with bachelor’s degrees the Zanow’s moved across the Country to Andrea’s precious homeland the Napa Valley. Graham instantly felt deeply connected to the beauty of the land completely surrounded with some of the finest wineries in the World. It was in Napa when Graham got his chance to work at the number 1 ranked restaurant in the world, The French Laundry. The French Laundry is a three Michelin star restaurant owned by who many refer to as the best chef on Earth, Thomas Keller. Graham had the opportunity to work with some of the most pristine products in the World. Truffles from Italy and France, Caviar from Russia and Foie Gras from Hudson Valley were used to the point of excess. So many lessons were learned at the French Laundry but most importantly Graham gained the highest level of attention to detail. “In order to make three Michelin star plates your workstation must be immaculate.” Graham has carried this great attention to detail through his entire career. He has done everything from being executive chef at three private country clubs to private cheff’ing for two NBA basketball teams. Most recently he has excelled as a research and development chef. Andrea has worked at some of the most stellar properties in the Napa Valley including the Greystone Wine Spectator Restaurant in St. Helena, California. Andrea thrived at event planning, food and wine pairings and formal dining room service. Many years later the Zanow’s reside in Voorhees, NJ. They have two lovely boys 5-year-old Grayson and 10-year-old Miles. Both boys are chefs in training and love to cook!!
