Tori Nunn has stepped down as CEO of premium chocolate and coffee chain Knoops.
Nunn, appointed CEO in September 2019, has scaled East Sussex-based Knoops from a single site in Rye to 12 stores across the UK.
The business has also commenced several retail partnerships under her leadership, including with boutique department stores Selfridges and Harrods and supermarket chain Wholefoods.
“It's been incredible to be part of such a growing company, building out a new sector and I'm very proud of what we've achieved to this point; from a little shop in Rye, to 12 shops with over 200 staff, and being stocked in Selfridges, Harrods and more. Thank you to William Gordon-Harris and Jens Knoop for the opportunity to lead such an innovative idea. I’ll be cheering from the sidelines as Knoops grows,” she said.
Knoops will follow its recent new stores in St Albans and Manchester — the chain’s largest outlet to date — with sites in Bath and London’s Notting Hill this month.
In March 2023, the luxury chocolate and coffee chain announced plans to open more than 120 UK stores over the next five years.
