Houston, Texas (June 2, 2021 ) - In October 2021, iconic cookware company, Chantal, celebrates five decades of award-winning designs, industry-altering product innovations, and an American business historical achievement, with the launch of a new color - MariGold - across its product lines. MariGold honors Heida Thurlow as the first woman founder in US history to have remained sole controller of her multimillion-dollar company at its 50-year benchmark.
As a celebration to this monumental year for the company, Chantal is releasing this new brilliant MariGold in June. The MariGold color is a representation of the classic flower’s symbolism and the traditional Golden Anniversary. As a joyful and invigorating hue, each piece radiates energy to any kitchen or table. This color will be available across multiple product lines, including iconic harmonica-kettles, modern electric kettles, bakeware and cast iron cookware, through key retailers and www.chantal.com.
“I am genuinely humbled to have reached this 50-year milestone. I owe this accomplishment to my dedicated team, amazing suppliers, global retailers, and loyal consumers. This achievement would not have been possible without them! Moving to Houston over 50 years ago, I was certain I could easily get a job in the oil and gas industry, but no one wanted to hire a female engineer. One company offered to hire me as their receptionist because they liked my accent! All these years, I’ve been guided by two of my father’s sayings, “nothing ventured, nothing gained” and “where there’s a will, there’s a way!” said Heida Thurlow, 77, Founder and President.
Heida’s willful ventures introduced color to the home kitchen, created over 50 patents, and married functionality to simple, elegant design. Most importantly, every Chantal piece performs beautifully.
