Big Green Egg Store Profile

Store History

  • Founded: 1974
  • Founded by: Ed Fisher

The Big Green Egg Company was launched in 1974 in a small shopping mall in Atlanta, Georgia. Ed Fisher had an idea for a barbecue grill that he thought was better than anything on the market. He took an ancient Oriental ceramic cooking concept, improved on it, gave it a catchy name and started selling it himself out of a single store. Contrary to the well known adage, "putting all his eggs in one basket" proved a successful strategy for Fisher, founder and still chairman of the company that today has become the world's largest manufacturer and international distributor of kamado-style cookers. The Big Green Egg is at the forefront of what has become one of the fastest growing segments of the U.S. barbecue industry and the EGG is now available in more than 20 countries. Ed Fisher's single storefront has likewise grown to thousands of dealers. When you purchase an EGG, you know your investment is protected by a successful, experienced company with a reputation for manufacturing top quality products, extending World Class Customer Service, and providing you with the confidence that they will be there to stand behind their products. From that original single product, the Big Green Egg has grown to include five sizes of the EGG and well over one hundred accessories and related products. Often copied, but never equalled, the Big Green Egg is the Ultimate Cooking Experience!
