Kudler Fine Foods (KFF) is a rapidly growing gourmet food chain located in California. In 1998, Kathy Kudler opened the first in the San Diego, California metropolitan area (Kudler’s Fine Foods 2013). Each store supplies outstanding local and imported foods and wines. The company prides itself on using the finest and freshest organic ingredients purchased from local farmers. Currently, there are three stores in California located La Jolla, Del Mar, and Encinitas.
Kudler Fine Foods provides a wide diversity of fresh bakery produce and items, seafood, meat, cheese, packaged foods, fine wines and specialty dairy products.
