Over the weekend I had the great pleasure of getting a tour of the Weber campus in Palatine, IL. I equated it to traveling to Mecca. It seems that I have become quite the Weber fanboy…rest assured for good reason though! My friend, Kevin, who set up the tour gave Bean and I an overview of the operation. It was truly amazing. As a privately owned company, it is a perfect example of the American entrepreneurial experience.
I am certain that I will not forget the trip and hospitality, and most certainly the fact that I walked close to where my grills were “born”. Very cool.
