ROSEMONT, Ill.–World Kitchen is exploring a sale of the company, according to a Reuters report that cited three unnamed sources.

The Reuters report also said the company has hired Baird to conduct the search, which is in the “early stages.” The deal could be worth $600 to $700 million, the sources in the report said.
