Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet

Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet's history is rooted in a family owned business dating back to the 1900s. From revolutionary hybrid grills that cook with charcoal, wood and gas, to the most powerful and energy efficient outdoor refrigeration available, Kalamazoo Outdoor today is a leading manufacturer in outdoor cooking and entertaining equipment. "We are committed to supporting the local community and take pride in working with other Michigan companies for quality parts and supplies," says company President Pete Georgiadis.

Innovation is at the heart of every Kalamazoo product. Each part of the collection — from grills and pizza ovens to refrigeration and cabinetry — represents a significant departure from the established norm. Our passion for outdoor cooking and our fiercely independent design philosophy drive us to establish new industry benchmarks. Consequently, our list of exclusives and innovations speaks for itself.
