Eric Frickle, owner of The Kitchen Engine (TKE) had a long-time dream to own and operate a family business close to where he grew up. When his parents approached him about collaborating to open TKE in the heart of Spokane, his dream came true. With each passing year, the community, partnership, and support has confirmed that this is exactly where Eric and The Kitchen Engine are supposed to be.
Today, TKE is Spokane’s premier kitchen store for top quality culinary necessities, foodie gifts, kitchen gadgets, cookware, appliances, pantry items, and more in the greater Spokane area and beyond. It is the “go-to” kitchen store for everyone, from the home cook to the well-seasoned chef. Our employees are an extension of our family and provide both excellent customer service and thorough product knowledge so that each and every customer can know that they’re taken care of and our top priority.
A bright future
We at TKE desire to never stop creating and bringing excellence to our community. Our Culinary Kitchen Classroom hosts live cooking classes and demos for customers, professionals, and foodies. As we seek an even brighter future, we invite you to explore our growing space where delicious aromas of coffee are brewing, fresh spices are marinating, teas are steeping, and an occasional treat is simmering on the demo kitchen stovetop.
