Kessick has extensive experience in the field of wine storage and wine display related to the hospitality industry. Kessick services restaurants, hotel bars, country clubs, wine lockers, wineries, and more with the objective of creating an aesthetic presentation while promoting wine sales in the hospitality environment.
Examples of Kessick wine storage systems in the hospitality market include Eleven Madison Park Restaurant in NY, Maple & Ash, Rosewood Hotel DC/Wolfgang Puck CUT, Dee Lincoln Prime, Pinehurst Golf & Country Club, Waldorf Astoria Chicago/Orlando, Alpha-Omega Winery Napa, Primland Resort and more.
Creating a showcase design to display wine in a hospitality environment is one of our specialties. We understand that wine is beautiful and creating a ‘wow’ factor both enhances the ambiance and moves more wine.
Hospitality wine storage can be divided into two categories. The front room is generally a showpiece display intended to raise awareness of wine availability, to create a visual impact and to promote wine sales. Back room storage is typically utilitarian with bins for bulk storage divided up by the varietals and classification of wine for easy access.
Kessick is on the cutting edge of wine display and storage design. We understand the significance of wine label exposure to the promotion and sale of wine in the hospitality setting. Contemporary styles drive the latest trends in materials such as metal, acrylic and wood along with LED display lighting.
Kessick manufactures and ships fully assembled, box construction wine cabinetry built to your order. We do not sell stick construction or kit racks. Our wine components are ready to install immediately upon delivery. This results in a much easier installation and a more refined final product.
Our components are constructed of hardwoods (Sapele, White Oak and Walnut) and ¾” Columbia Pure-Bond® hardwood core wood panels. We do not use redwood or pine.
When compared to custom casework and high-end marketed wine racks, Kessick Wine Storage Systems are an amazing value. ‘Kessick Quality’ is not just a saying; it’s how we do business.
Kessick crafts fully assembled hardwood wine cabinetry and cannot be compared to the many unassembled kit rack and stick construction products available on the marketplace.
However, we find that we are still competitive on many of the price comparisons when you consider that the installation process is minimized due to our ready-to-install format, pre-installed LED lighting, factory countertop and millwork joinery, integrated install rails and more.
• Kessick is a manufacturer that sells wholesale through a national dealer network.
• Our primary dealers are Wine Cellar Professionals. A sign-up fee is required and dealers receive factory training, product education, free initial designs, wholesale discount, sales support and sales leads. Contact Kessick for details.
• Kessick also sells to the design professional. These include builders, design-build firms, designers, kitchen/bath professionals, closet professionals and more. An initial design fee per project applies and is credited towards the sale. Trade discounts apply and consultation and product education on wine storage, refrigeration and room construction are provided.
• Kessick Essentials is also sold to design professionals to create their own designs in SketchUp using our catalog in 3D Warehouse.
To begin the design process, a Design Request Form is submitted along with floorplan, room elevation sketches and any inspiration photos that you find on Houzz or elsewhere.
Kessick will produce a comprehensive color 3D design, at no cost, to be used as a sales presentation. A design fee is implemented with any future changes and updates (see design fee policy).
Once a final design is determined a 50% deposit is collected and Kessick creates a comprehensive, dimensioned design for customer approval. In addition, a sales summery form is sent to the dealer for review and approval. The Sales Summary reviews final price, wood species, stain/finish selection, shipping location, and more.
Upon approval by signature of these forms the job goes onto the production schedule and an estimated shipping date is provided.
Prior to completion, the shipping arrangements are confirmed and an invoice for the balance is submitted.
Upon final payment the job is shipped.
A typical timetable from design approval and deposit to ship day:
Reserve Series can run up to 10 weeks or more depending on size and complexity.
We have several, easy payment methods available:
1.) Bank draft (ACH Transfer) so you do not need to mail any paper checks to us
2.) You can also send a paper check with our FEDEX account number
3.) You can also pay with a credit card. We take V,MC, & DISC (no AMEX). Please note, we charge a 3% CC processing fee.
Kessick carefully packages in crates and pallets (see web link about how we ship) and ships LTL freight for both commercial and residential deliveries. For residential deliveries, a lift-gate service is utilized.
Robert, as you can guess the cellar is amazing. Far exceeding our hopes and dreams. We have more or less filled it, and it looks amazing. Thank you for all your hard work.
