Williams Sonoma founder Chuck Williams was inspired by a passion for bringing people together around cooking and enjoying good food. His reputation as a culinary pioneer was preceded by a diversity of pursuits — from learning to cook as a child in his grandmother’s 1920s kitchen and picking fruit in Depression-era orchards to being a WWII airplane mechanic and 1950s building contractor. In 1956, after a life-changing trip to Paris, Chuck transformed a small hardware shop in Sonoma, California, into the first Williams Sonoma store, creating what would become one of the world’s most innovative purveyors of top-quality essentials for cooking, dining and entertaining. The store offered a collection of classic French kitchen equipment that many Americans had never seen before. And it immediately became a favorite of home cooks and professional chefs alike. Since then, our brand has expanded to include hundreds of exclusive products from around the world, more than 230 stores nationwide, millions of direct-mail catalogs, an award-winning e-commerce site – and one of the world’s best-selling cookbook libraries. One essential factor remains unchanged: Williams Sonoma’s enduring commitment to the finest quality and outstanding customer service.
