CUP O’ JOE – Winter
Cup o’ Joe: Thank you – and a Look Ahead
By Joe Passero, Chairman of KLAFFS
KLAFFS Expects an Exciting 2018 — Its 97th Year!
As we say goodbye to 2017 — a very interesting and challenging year — we look forward with tremendous optimism to 2018.
KLAFFS is extremely proud that we’re beginning our 97th year in business! We’ve always evolved with the times to serve our customers needs and to lead the way with the latest design trends and home technology. We plan to continue our commitment to “Life, Home and Style” in the coming year.
We are so grateful to all our wonderful professional clients who we have served over the past year – architects, interior designers, builders and contractors. I personally thank each and every one of you for allowing KLAFFS to be part of your masterful work – including many award-winning projects.
Vincent “Vinnie” Sciarretta, Founder/Owner of VAS Construction and KLAFFS Kitchen and Kitchen Design General Manager Nick Geragi
Equally as important are the discerning homeowners who have recognized the value of shopping where the professionals shop. Thank you for visiting our showrooms, taking advantage of our experience and letting us assist in making your house a home. You’ve allowed us to bring beautiful design and luxury products into your lives.
Me and Victoria Vandamm of Vandamm Interiors
We at KLAFFS are honored to help make your home a more pleasing, welcoming and convenient place to live – supplying the essentials of comfort and function, from some of the most distinguished brands in the world. Let me reach out to thank these GREAT companies. They supply the best products in our industry. Among them we have business partners that have supported KLAFFS and its clients for our entire history – close to a century! We would not be where we are without them.
Finally, my utmost appreciation to our most important asset — the dedicated team of associates and support members who interact with our customers everyday – without whom, there is no KLAFFS. We look forward to working closely together once again to make this the best year ever.
Candace Pereira, KLAFFS General Manager, Lighting and Kerie Boshka, KLAFFS Tile & Stone, Norwalk
My wish for 2018 is peace, good health and prosperity for all of us.
Happy New Year!
