Butcher Block Co. Announces blOKTOBERFEST in Celebration of Oktoberfest

E-commerce Company’s Fall Promotion Honors Bavarian Tradition

Butcher Block Co. has announced a fall promotion tied to Bavaria’s Oktoberfest that is nowadays celebrated in cities across the globe. Using a clever play on words, the online retailer whose website (https://butcherblockco.com) features butcher block countertops, islands, tables, carts, cutting boards and knife blocks unveiled their blOKTOBERFEST promotion.

Kathleen Grodsky, Butcher Block Co.’s Vice President of Marketing and Operations, explained that the online store will offer a 5% discount to customers who make purchases through October 31st and enter the coupon code “BLOKTOBERFEST” during checkout.

“The Oktoberfest festival is held in Munich, Bavaria, Germany every year from late September through early October. Tens of thousands attend the festivities to sample local beers, enjoy traditional food and enjoy music and parades,” Grodsky explained. “It has become so popular that a number of cities around the world now stage their own Oktoberfests, modeled after the events in Munich,” she continued. Commenting on the event’s origin she shared that, “In 1810, Bavaria’s Prince Ludwig wished to commemorate his betrothal to Princess Therese, so he arranged festivities that included a horse race that drew a crowd estimated at 40,000. It was such a resounding success that it instantly became an annual affair.”

Butcher Block Co.’s President, Mark Shook, offered that, “Oktoberfest fits perfectly with our mission and our audience. It’s all about people coming together to eat, drink, sing and dance. No matter where you go in the world you will see people enjoying good food and drink and the company of one another. That’s what our company is all about as well. The tagline on the Butcher Block Co. blog website (https://butcherblockco.com/blog) sums it up succinctly: “For people who love to cook, entertain and gather in the kitchen.”

Butcher Block Co. Adds Italy’s Artelegno Products

Butcher Block Co. Adds Italy’s Artelegno Products

The E-commerce Company’s Kitchen Product Offerings Now Include Stylish Artisan Knife Blocks

Butcher Block Co. announced today that it has entered into an agreement to distribute on its website (https://butcherblockco.com) knife blocks and other kitchen accessories designed and manufactured by Artelengo of Italy. Butcher Block Co. currently sells butcher block countertops, islands, tables and carts, as well as cutting boards.

Mark Shook, Butcher Block Co.’s president, stated the move is in keeping with the company’s overall business strategy. “Our mission is to offer visitors to our online store not only the finest butcher block furniture and accessories, but also other types of distinctive kitchen products, as long as they’re beautiful and functional,” he explained. Earlier this year the company added to its “virtual shelves” handcrafted Cotton and Dust-brand cutting boards, as well as the innovative Scrapesation wooden grill scraper. “Our latest discovery is one we’re even more excited about,” Shook continued, “since it moves us into an all-new product category: knife blocks, both the magnetic variety as well as conventional blocks with slots for knives, scissors and knife sharpeners.”

According to Company Vice President, Kathleen Grodsky, “Artelegno was founded in 1960 but began distributing its products in the U.S. only recently. Their gorgeous knife blocks and unique cutting boards made of beech wood are clearly a cut above the standard domestic fare. We’re eager to help Americans discover such elegant and stylish products for their kitchens.”

According to company promotional materials, Artelegno’s mission is “to improve the quality of everyday life.” They seek to create truly innovative products based on proprietary, original designs. The company intends to continue “in the path of Italian tradition, always striving to blend beauty, functionality and durability.”

Summing things up, BBC’s Shook said, “We view this as a win-win partnership. We get the chance to offer our discriminating customers Artelegno’s top-shelf products and in turn, they gain visibility on one of the premier U.S. online stores specializing in first-rate kitchen products and catering to self-described food and cooking fanatics. You can expect other announcements of a similar nature in the near future.”

About Butcher Block Co: “The Experts in All Things Butcher Block” pride themselves on being the number-one resource for helpful information on kitchen furniture and accessories, and one of the premier sources for butcher block countertops, kitchen islands, carts, tables and cutting boards. They set the standard for outstanding customer service and employ sharp, dedicated, hard-working people who share a passion for all things kitchen, and especially for all things butcher block.

The Butcher Block Experts Are on the Lookout for Breakout Artisans in the Southwestern U.S.

Butcher Block Co. Looks to Expand Its Supplier Lineup

Online retailer Butcher Block Co., a leading direct-to-consumer distributor of butcher block countertops, kitchen islands, kitchen carts and cutting boards, announced today that it added two new artisanal woodcrafters to its vendor portfolio during this year’s second quarter, and it continues to search for makers of differentiated, handcrafted kitchen furniture and accessories who are based in the southwestern U.S.

Company president, Mark Shook, proclaimed that the E-commerce company “now distributes on the Butcher Block Co. website (https://butcherblockco.com) the full line of distinctive Cotton and Dust cutting boards and butcher blocks handcrafted by Matthew Harper in his West Texas design studio; as well as the innovative Scrapesation wooden grill scraper, designed and handmade by Sean Ung, based in Central Arizona.”

According to Company Vice President, Kathleen Grodsky, “Cotton and Dust artisan cutting boards and blocks are distinguished by Harper’s unusual designs, combinations of woods, and extensive use of tropical tigerwood that’s native to South America. Adding to their distinctiveness, Harper delivers his boards fully-wrapped and ready to gift, and will custom-engrave any boards, making it an even more sentimental and memorable gift.”

Grodsky described Sean Ung’s Scrapesation grill scraper as “100% maple wood and designed to compete head-to-head with steel wire grill brushes, about which the Center for Disease Control has previously issued warnings.” Specifically, in 2012, the CDC warned consumers who grill they should “be aware of the risk for ingestion of wire bristles from grill-cleaning brushes.”

“This is a great opportunity for talented artisans to get their creations in front of tens of thousands of online shoppers each month,” Shook continued. “Visitors to ButcherBlockCo.com tend to be cooking enthusiasts and at-home entertainers who appreciate fine woodworking,” he concluded.

According to Grodsky, who oversees Operations and Marketing for Butcher Block Co., “I invite Southwest-based craftsmen of distinctive kitchenware to contact me for private and confidential discussions.”

About Butcher Block Co: The Butcher Block Experts at Butcher Block Co. are the number one resource for helpful information on kitchen furniture and accessories, and one of the premier sources of butcher block countertops, kitchen islands, kitchen carts and cutting boards. They continue to offer market leading service standards, and are fortunate and thankful to have sharp, dedicated employees who share a passion for all things butcher block and a commitment to superior customer service.
