Swanky Launches New Shopify Plus Store With Subscription Model for Art and Cook

Get the lowdown on the new ecommerce site and subscription model we recently launched for US kitchenware retailer Art and Cook.

Brooklyn-based brand Art and Cook design, create and retail innovative food and lifestyle appliances to elevate the cooking experience. Their unique product catalogue ranges from spatulas and skillets to cutlery and cake pans.

With an existing site geared towards B2B selling, and an ambition to bring their revolutionary kitchenware direct to consumers for the first time, they enlisted Swanky to build them a new store on the Shopify Plus platform.

The site launched in November 2021 (on Black Friday no less!), complete with a newly-developed subscription membership program in which users receive a part-curated, part-personalised subscription box on a quarterly basis, as well as other benefits including discounts across the site.

A new dawn for an ambitious brand

This was a build from scratch utilising Shopify’s new storefront ‘Online Store 2.0’, with the Dawn theme as a base – which means the site is ultra-lightweight, flexible and intuitive, all whilst allowing for powerful brand expression through visual storytelling.

The store reflects Founder Allan Ben’s motivation to celebrate the artistry of the cooking experience, and, much like the collection of swanky kitchen tools it showcases, is a beautiful marriage of form and function, style and quality, innovation and inspiration.

Behind the scenes is a future-proofed tech stack, built to accelerate Art and Cook’s online growth. Guided by the business’ unique needs and goals, and the knowledge we’ve gained from over a decade in the industry, we suggested a digital toolbox loaded for success:

  • Marketing automation platform, Klaviyo.
  • Recharge, the leading subscription model payments platform.
  • Yotpo, an integrated solution for reviews, visual user generated content, loyalty, rewards and more.
  • All-in-one customer service helpdesk, Gorgias.
  • And Matrixify, a solution for bulk importing, exporting and updating data.
