It’s colorful and creative product development in a non-competitive environment. That about sums up the culture and atmosphere at Architec Housewares in Delray Beach, Florida. From cutting boards and mixing bowls to muffin pans and measuring cups, Architec whips up products from design to creation in about 6 months. Says President Jenna Sellers Miller, “Half of our year is spent in product development. It’s pretty intense but everyone respects each other’s talent.” Brands include: TSP, EcoSmart, Architec and Homegrown Gourmet.
But that’s not all they develop! With a true community-minded spirit, the team is completely dedicated to a variety of projects, for people and animals alike. For example, a portion of the proceeds from the sales of Homegrown Gourmet is dedicated to Project Restore, where schools and senior centers grow food for a local family in need and help spread the word about the benefits of growing your own food and healthy living.
Bake for Benny, which began in 2015, grew out of the love and passion Jenna and her team have for animals. Each calendar year, they donate 5% of sales from the TSP bake line to pet charities and no-kill shelters.
And we all know that kids say the funniest things! Through its Kids Test Kitchen, Architec gets honest, heartwarming and humorous focus group feedback from kids who test its various items.
Watch the color and camaraderie come alive at Architec!
