Alfresco Home and Fervor Grills Vesta Award Finalist

PHILADELPHIA - Alfresco Home, a designer and manufacturer of distinctive casual furniture, garden accents and the exclusive North American distributor of Fervor™ Grills and the Fornetto™ Wood-Fired Dual Purpose Oven and Smoker was recently presented with two Vesta Awards at the HPBE Expo in Nashville, TN. Finalist awards were presented to Alfresco Home for the Fervor Gas Barbecue as well as for two Fervor accessory items:  the Fervor Paper Towel Shelf and Fervor Rubbish Bag Holder.

Alfresco Home CEO and President, Joseph Cilio, says, “Fervor fever is catching on. We are very proud to have been awarded as finalist for the Vesta awards in the gas barbecue and the gas barbecue accessory categories. “   Vesta Awards are presented to companies in the hearth and home industry to recognize innovation in product design and technology.  

Rick Baker, Outdoor Gourmet Manager for Alfresco Home states, “Our development and design team has spent the greater part of the last two years working with consumers, retailers and chefs to build a grill from the ground- up that meets their respective needs.  With Fervor™ not only did we want to make the smartest and easiest grill to cook on in the marketplace but we wanted to bring a tremendous value to the end consumer while allowing the independent retail channel the opportunity to make a strong profit on a category that has historically made that difficult. I believe we have achieved these goals with Fervor.”

The Fervor™ Icon 655, 6 Burner Gas Grill was recognized for both design and technology. Its many attributes allow for safe, smart and healthy cooking while keeping the flavor in the food.  With numerous features including the Fervor™ exclusive Grillsmart™ technology and functional glass viewing window, this Fervor Grill along with its 4 and 3 burner models will begin landing in retail stores throughout North America in March 2015. 

Cilio explains, "Fervor is supported by a team that has been producing gas barbecues for over 45 years.  While the brand is new, the experience is deep and it has allowed us to build grills with excellent benefits to the consumer while providing strong warranty and tech support. The occasion to invest in a new brand, Fervor™, in a product category that is significant in size and can separate any retailer from the mass does not come along that often. I encourage every retailer to take advantage of this opportunity.”

Complemented by a full range of accessories, Fervor’s smart accessorizing concepts including the Vesta Award winning Fervor Paper Towel Shelf and Fervor Rubbish Bag Holder only begin to turn an already well thought out grill design into the most practical and functional grill in the marketplace.  “Personally I think we could have a Fervor™ Grill in every backyard in the North America.” states Baker.  “Fervor takes the grilling experience to another level.”

Fervor™ Grills are available in 6 burner stainless, 4 burner stainless, 3 burner stainless, and a 3 burner in red. Grill covers, Paper Towel Shelf, Trash Bag Holder, and Roasting Dish are some of the wide range of Fervor™ brand accessories.
