New York, NY (March 5, 2022)
Dash and its parent company StoreBound are returning to the Inspired Home Show in Chicago (Booth #L12902) for the first time since 2019 with a cornucopia of innovative products. The Dash brand, most famous for being the #1 brand in the waffle category, continues to innovate and win over consumers by raising the bar with new offerings like the Flip Belgian Waffle Maker, while also expanding into new categories with new non-electrics and gadgets, kitchen organization and storage, and will be debuting a line of eco-friendly Recycled Aluminum Cookware.
With tried-and-true brands like Dash and Sobro, as well as new sister brands and partnerships like Rise by Dash, The Fit Cook x Dash collection and Delish by Dash, StoreBound continues to lead the industry with cutting-edge technologies and unique design concepts.
By every measure, 2021 was a year of growth for StoreBound. Despite a continued challenge to the retail landscape due to COVID-19, the company launched a series of new innovative products, forged new retail partnerships, earned extensive media and social acknowledgments, and improved the out-of-box customer experience, all leading to the continued rapid growth of the Dash brand.
“With every new product we launch we are learning, growing, and improving. Our rapid growth is a testament to our dedication to bring great products to market and demonstrate to our consumers that they are everything to us. We’re thrilled about what we have in store for 2022,” said Evan Dash, StoreBound Founder and CEO.
Developments this year include: The Fit Men Cook x Dash collection; the expansion of the Zakarian collection, furthering the collaboration with the world-renowned Chef Geoffery Zakarian; Rise by Dash, a new line of kitchen essentials launched in partnership with Walmart stores in the US and Canadian Tire in Canada; brand new Dog Treat Makers, bringing healthy eating to furry friends; a new addition to its popular Air Fryer series; several nonelectric gadgets essential to any kitchen; and many new spins on the classic Mini Waffle Maker.
“As our market share has grown, we’ve continued to ramp up our pace of innovation and our retail partners have shown their appreciation with expanded assortments and shelf space,”Dash said. StoreBound will be showcasing a number of these new innovations and patent-pending products at the Inspired Home Show Chicago.
“When designing all of our products, we take great care to understand how the end consumer will interact with them, knowing it is very important for them to have a fun, easy and enjoyable experience. The same goes for our packaging and out of the box experience. We want customers to easily understand how a product will help them in their lives and then inspire them to go beyond what they were initially looking for,” says Glenn De Stefano, President. “In today’s ever-changing fast-paced marketplace, our retail partners are always striving to capture the consumer’s attention and dollars. With our StoreBound brands, we give them the winning formula for success.”
