Two Texan Brother Entrepreneurs, a Tractor Plow Disc, Welding Shop and the Birth of World’s Most Innovative Grill
Chef-tested, chef-approved®, FireDisc® Grills offer unmatched portability, durability and an endless variety of cooking options worthy of everyone from the world’s top chef’s to hunters, backyard family grill masters, tailgaters and campers.
FireDisc® Grills Co-founders, brothers and best friends, Hunter and Griffin Jaggard, are no strangers to entrepreneurship. They were raised by hardworking parents who instilled a strong work ethic and the passion and tenacity to solve problems. As early as age 6/8 the duo had already launched their first business venture – selling golf balls painstakingly retrieved from the landscape bordering the neighborhood course. Their daily perseverance hunting golf balls throughout all weather conditions yielded a loyal customer base – and a few colds. By High school the brothers had an entire series of business pursuits under their belt ranging from a garage-based bike repair shop to the invention of a popular potato gun. The potato gun was an instant success, achieving impressive sell-through despite the burning of their supportive father’s eyebrows during the proto-type development phase. Their entrepreneurship did not end with golf balls, bikes and potato guns.
Avid outdoor enthusiasts, the two inventors thrived on designing unique solutions to solve day-to-day challenges. For example, their active lifestyle afforded many a camping, hunting, fishing and tailgating adventure, yet each was fraught with frustration by the lack of adequate methods to cook up delicious meals for large groups in the outdoors. After numerous fails with just about every grill on the market at the time, the brother team set out on a mission to develop the world’s most innovative grill. They reached back to family experiences on a Texas farm where big groups were fed field-side on makeshift grills. Those memories were the seed of FireDisc® Grills.
In 2010, armed with a tractors plow disc and a welding shop for hire, the brothers set out to design a grill that was portable, yet bullet-proof, and could out-cook any other gas grill on the market. FireDisc® Grill and a collection of accessories are now sold via 300+ retail locations throughout the country and online across the globe. Here are a few reasons why a FireDisc® Grill is in a league of its own.
