From the dealer trainings to the in-store promotions, integrating Christopher Kimball and America’s Test Kitchen into their dealer DCS Dealer Direct program this year is a recipe for success.

The excitement of the partnership has been infectious. Dealers want to know how they can integrate Christopher Kimball and team into their dealerships. With up to 2 million viewers per episode, savvy dealers see the value at hand.
