Brad and Karen Hughes — the owners of Artichoke
, Over-the-Rhine's only gourmet kitchen store — were chosen for this year's HomeWorld Business
Impact Merchant awards.
The Hughes opened Artichoke in 2016 adjacent to Findlay Market, and not only does the couple stock every kitchen utensil and appliance you could possibly need, they also pay close attention to detail.
Artichoke's interior is asthetically pleasing, and is based on simple, modern elements of design. The store's inventory is kept in the basement of the small store rather than on the shelves, and everything down to the packaging of each product the Hughes carry is carefully considered.
The rest of the recipients are from big businesses like Target, Best Buy and Costco. Artichoke is the only locally-owned small business to make the list.
