EcoQue Inc. Hires Verde PR to FireUp Awareness of Green Grilling

EcoQue and Verde PR & Consulting team up.

SEATTLE, WA., (Sept. 15, 2011) - EcoQue Inc., the leading manufacturer of energy efficient portable and gas grills for discerning backyard chefs and campsite cooks, has appointed Verde PR & Consulting as its public relations agency of record, effective immediately.

Verde PR, an agency that specializes in the outdoors, sustainability, travel and active lifestyle markets, will be firing up the awareness of a brand new product category with the launch of EcoQue: Eco-friendly, gourmet grilling. Verde will be catalyzing the launch of the EcoQue's brand and product collection through brand positioning, media and influencer relations strategies.

With its launch, slated for Sept. 20, EcoQue delivers “a Greener Way to Grill,”™ through its innovative product collection spanning a full line of eco-friendly outdoor cooking products. The EcoQue collection includes portable grills and griddles, backyard propane grills, a wood-fired pizza oven & smoker, and grilling accessories.

“Cooking outdoors should not only be healthy, delicious and fun but also environmentally friendly,” says Tim Jewett, CEO and founder of EcoQue, Inc. “Verde's experience with the outdoor, green and active lifestyle markets and audiences positions the agency as the ideal firm to spread the word about why EcoQue's unique portable grills, propane grills and outdoor cooking products are the answer for eco-conscious consumers who desire high performance, innovative design and optimum efficiency.”

EcoQue's portable grills use up to 75 percent less fuel, allowing users to cook a meal for a family of four with as few as nine briquettes. Both the 12- and 15-inch EcoQue grills are collapsible and highly portable. Most important, cooking with an EcoQue grill is not only fun but yields incredible results proven to satisfy even the most discerning foodie.

EcoQue's Wood-fired Pizza Oven & Smoker allows unprecedented temperature control that saves energy and produces food cooked just right every time. The company's innovative EyeQue propane grills conserve gas by allowing users to watch food cook through a glass panel, eliminating the need to open the hood. The company also offers a growing line of accessory products for both their portable and propane grills.

“Nothing caps a great day of hiking, cycling, paddling or skiing like a barbeque with friends and family,” says Verde PR founder Kristin Carpenter-Ogden. “EcoQue makes it possible to bring a durable, high-quality, low consumption grill along for the adventure. The EcoQue team is launching a movement around a new, greener way to grill and we are very proud to be supporting the founding of a new category of product: High-quality, low-consumption grilling solutions.”

The portable EcoQue grills are now available on EcoQue, EyeQue propane grills and EcoQue Pizza Oven & Smokers will be announcing top-quality retailer partners in the near term.
