We started the business back in 1984 (we used to be called Charcoal Companion, but have since evolved). 2019 marks our 35th year in business, yet we feel like we’re just getting started. CEO Chuck Adams likes to refer to us as the “first company in grilling.” By first he means that many product concepts were first brought to market by our company. Over the years we’ve been fortunate to earn the repeat business of many customers including some of the nation’s largest – and smallest – companies.
We thrive on commitment to creative and innovative design, unique licensing partnerships, superior communication and service, and well-developed retail solutions for an ever-changing marketplace.
Treating people right is fundamental to how we do business. We treat our customers how we want to be treated. We listen to customer concerns and feedback and are only a phone call or email away. We treat each other like family, and we treat ourselves to a good day’s work and regular vacations!
Our goals have always been the same: Have fun, do exceptional work, build the best product in the business, experiment, pay attention to the details, treat people right, tell the truth, and keep learning.
