Top U.S. luxury outdoor living industry distributors have signed-on to handle product stocking and sales representation

ANAHEIM, Calif., Feb. 16, 2016 – Stanley Cheng, a Chinese American entrepreneur who founded Meyer Corporation, U.S., the largest cookware company in the U.S., and the Hestan Commercial Corporation line of premium commercial kitchen appliances in early 2015, announced today the launch of his latest culinary enterprise. Hestan Outdoor is a new line of premium residential grilling systems and complimentary outdoor products offering powerful, professional-grade components and distinctive features and benefits that are completely unique to the market.

Manufactured entirely in the U.S. in the company’s 70,000+ square foot state-of-the-art headquarters in Anaheim, CA, Hestan Outdoor gas grills offer a number of innovative, high-performance features, including an easy-to-open hood that holds its position, interior hood lighting, a built-in rotisserie with spit storage, and thick, lasered stainless steel grates cut in-house.

Hestan Outdoor grills are available in built-in and freestanding models, and feature a unique, sleek stainless steel design available in twelve exclusive color finishes.

“We pride ourselves on restless innovation, superior engineering and purpose-built designs, but also our in-depth understanding of the marketplace and the interests and needs of the ultimate end-users we serve,” said Eric Deng, President of Hestan Outdoor. “For many consumers, grilling outdoors is much more than an act of food preparation. It’s a lifestyle activity that encompasses culinary, leisure and social pursuits among others. With the outdoor living category in a state of growth, we see tremendous potential and are ready to move.”
