About Performance Kitchens & Home

Kitchen Solution Experts Since 1974

Performance Kitchens and Home Inc. was established in 1974 by founder Brian Forman who studied cabinet making from an old German craftsman in a small barn in Montgomery County Pennsylvania. Learning the craft of cabinet making, a member of the Pennsylvania Gild of Craftsman and working alongside legendary wood workers George Nakashima and George Brungtraeger, Brian started Performance Kitchens with the knowledge of building fine cabinetry for the home, after many years of building the cabinets he sought out cabinet manufactures that believed in the same philosophy of cabinet making that he had perfected through the years.

Performance Kitchens was established by Brian converting an old 4 story building in the historic town of Manayunk which is located in a section of Philadelphia along the Schuylkill River, it is inextricably connected to the history of both the canal that runs through the riverfront of this hilly neighborhood, and the 108-mile navigation system of which the canal was once a part. In the present day, the canal is a key element of the Manayunk Main Street Historic District, listed on the National Register of historic places.
