Since 2001, the Company has produced a full line of American-made, patented and exceptionally energy-efficient gas and electric circular flattop cooking grills that have become popular with professional chefs.

The Company’s core technology allows it to create line extensions that include fixed and portable display cooking solutions. The Company has now developed a concept for a very inexpensive cooking unit that would allow the Company to reach an entirely new segment of users in residential and commercial markets.

More than 15 million grills are sold annually in the United States alone. The Company’s respected position in the professional market has now attracted the major players in the foodservice management arena where the top four firms, now customers of the Company, command a large share of the market.
