Destination Kitchen opened its doors in October 2008 and was bought by Scott and Shannon in January, 2013. It is located in Historic Downtown Norton, which is 13 miles from the Nebraska border and 115 miles from the Colorado border. Our location “out in the middle of nowhere” foreordained us to be a destination store. Our already large customer base from surrounding communities, has made that a reality.
We have had a life long passion of exploring all avenues of food. We truly enjoy food, expanding our repertoire of new recipes, and delight in tasting something for the first time. It seemed natural to have a kitchen store that would offer a multitude of kitchen items, and serve delectable desserts. It has been our desire, to broaden peoples comfort zone in food, by offering a variety of fresh baked pastry and retailing food items in the store, not readily available in our area. You will not find another store like ours between Kansas City and Denver. We invite you to come experience our uniqueness!
