Bradshaw Home is celebrating its 50th year in business. The company started as Bradshaw International in 1969 and was a food brokerage business.
Through the next decade, the brand evolved its offerings into housewares. It began selling kitchen products in supermarkets, alongside the food where consumers shopped, as opposed to hardware stores or other retail outlets. By 1988, the company launched GoodCook, its first kitchenware brand.
The company has seen consistent and steady growth since then, both in market share and through partnerships and acquisitions, the company said. Under the company’s umbrella now is Bialetti Italian coffee and cookware; the Shye food storage business; Butler Home Products; and cleaning brand Casabella.
