American premier gourmet food store, Dean & DeLuca, is preparing to open its first gourmet specialty store in Istanbul at Kanyon shopping center this December.
Renowned as a culinary food haven, Dean & DeLuca will bring a wide range of artisanal gourmet food selection from all over the world to Istanbul, from fine cheeses and charcuterie to high quality olive oils, herbs and spices for the discerning epicurean, prepared foods and bakery, pastry and coffee.
Founded in 1977 by Joel Dean and Giorgio DeLuca with the opening of its flagship store in SoHo, New York, Dean & DeLuca has grown into a multi-channel retailer of gourmet foods, wines and kitchenware with operations throughout the United States and international licenses abroad.
The company’s Soho New York location has become a must-see or rather a must-taste tourist attraction.
Dean and Deluca also has stores in Washington D.C., North Carolina, Kansas and Napa Valley in California. Along with their upcoming location in Istanbul, the company is opening locations in Japan, Thailand, South Korea, and the Gulf countries.
