Thanks to the efforts of our distribution partner on the hospitality side of our business – RAK USA – we’ve recently secured a couple of nice placements of Stolzle glassware in two prestigious hotel settings.
First, in Hawaii, the beautiful Hilton Hotels property - The Waldorf Astoria Grand Wailea – on the island of Maui bought several hundred dozens of our Angelina and Classic wine glasses, along with multiple New York Bar tumblers and assorted specialty cocktail glasses.
Next, the Hyatt Regency in Frisco, Texas bought nearly 1000 dozen(!) of our newly redesigned Ultra, our Classic and our very popular Grand Cuvee wine glasses to serve both their dining and their banquet guests. And, just to make sure the guest beverage service remained at a best-in-class service level, the hotel also selected our New York Bar glassware for their cocktail and regular beverage service.
With the Stolzle brand having it's beginning roots deeply planted in the hospitality sector, it is exciting for us to add these two, very prestigious hotel properties to our growing list of clients around the world.
Hats off to our distribution partner - RAK USA - for these latest successes and for keeping hotels hot for Stolzle!
Why Should Retailers Consider Stolzle as Their Premier Glassware Partner?
From time to time, I get asked why should retailers consider Stolzle as their premier glassware partner? It’s a question that I love to answer and completely understand why people ask it. After all, sometimes glassware and glassware companies can all look alike. But. in fact, there are several great – and unique - reasons for retailers to carry, promote and sell Stolzle Glassware.
First of all, with Stolzle there is a wide diversity of products and collections. Our U.S. catalog has great products for nearly every type of setting and design, all at a wide variety of great price points. From classic to contemporary, from everyday use to those special celebratory collections, Stolzle has something to offer nearly everyone. And, in addition, we have additional products that can be ordered on a factory-direct basis, adding even more collections to consider.
Another great reason for retailers to work with Stolzle is our flexibility. From the factory, we can create special gift sets for a retailer. That way, retailers can create their own, custom gift sets that meet their customer’s tastes and preferences. Inaddition, here in the U.S. we can drop ship our inventoried collections directly to the shopper’s home. That’s an added service that we offer.
But, probably the best reason for retailers to work closely with Stolzle is that we are a real factory. What do I mean by that? Stolzle actually is the manufacturer of the product, so we are not like other “importers” who simply buy their products from various factories and then re-sell those products here in the States. Those who import and then market glassware like that are then totally reliant on those factories for timeliness of shipments, overall product quality, consistency and much more. As a 130-year old producer of world class crystal and glassware, we don’t just represent the factory – we are the factory.
And one more great reason for retailers to consider Stolzle as their premier glassware partner is that Stolzle is part of a €1.8 Billion company which gives us the strength and resources to keep our manufacturing capabilities at best-in-class levels. Stolzle has always been at the forefront of glassware production technology, helping ensure that we bring to market the very best products at the very best prices. There’s no question that Stolzle looks to continue to grow its leadership position within the glassware and crystal glassware category and we are committed to the U.S. consumer market.
