About Us

I would like to begin by saying welcome to The Happy Cooker Website; we are glad that you are here. Let’s start with some history. The Happy Cooker Emporium first began as a small microwave shop in Glenmore Landing way back in the early 1980’s and there was no looking back. The Glenmore Landing location housed all the operations over the years including BBQ sales & cooking classes until the second location opened in Market Mall October 1993. Most recently our Strathcona Square location opened in April 2000 which now houses our cooking classes and that’s how it stands today.


The Happy Cooker Emporium was under the same ownership from opening day until May 2010 when there was a passing of the reins. Now under its new ownership there are many fresh new ideas and products to see. The new ownership has a background as a professional chef as well as a purveyor of knives. He is eager to share all his knowledge and experiences and maybe some secrets with you at The Happy Cooker.


Our store associates are highly knowledgeable in all areas of the kitchen industry; from knives, cookware, to the latest gadgets, we pride ourselves on knowing the most current trends. We travel far and wide, sourcing products from around the world to bring to our customers the secrets that only experts in the kitchen trade typically share. Something that always remains the same at The Happy Cooker Emporium is our commitment to customer service, quality products and reasonable prices. We hope you enjoy the website and as well hope to see you in one of our stores soon!
