Frontgate teams up with celebrity chef Michael Symon for outdoor launch
The Frontgate Outdoor Kitchen includes three distinct collections with over 15 modular pieces – adding style, flexibility and functionality to any outdoor space. As an official launch partner, Chef Symon will share exclusive content featured on frontgate.com, showing how to set up and store your outdoor kitchen, as well as thoughtful ways to maximize its use. Throughout the year, Chef Symon will also share expert culinary tips and gourmet recipes that inspire elevated outdoor entertaining.
To celebrate the launch and kick off the partnership, Chef Symon will join Frontgate at the 2022 South Beach Wine & Food Fest at Miami Beach, Florida. The event will feature Frontgate’s new outdoor collections, including Outdoor Kitchen.
“You no longer need to be a chef to enjoy high-quality cuisines, and that notion should extend beyond the walls of your home,” says the chef. Michael Symon. “There’s nothing better than being able to easily entertain friends and family outdoors. And what I love about the Frontgate collection is not just the quality, but the fact that the modular design offers the storage, flexibility and style to make it yours.”
The last two years have fundamentally changed consumer behavior. The comforts of home and safety outdoors have become central to our ways of socializing – our own backyard becoming the destination of choice. As the 2022 outdoor season begins, consumers will be more inclined than ever to turn their backyard into an outdoor oasis by incorporating stylish yet functional pieces for prepping, grilling and entertaining.
Frontgate’s three outdoor kitchen collections – Westport teak, Aluminum Westport and Isola kitchen – offer modular designs that fit any space and seamlessly integrate appliances, including grills, wine coolers and compact freezers. They also feature durable, scratch-resistant countertops and thoughtful storage for entertainment essentials.
“We couldn’t be more excited to kick off the outdoor season with such an incredible partner,” says Tom Bazzone, Chairman of Frontgate. “Michael’s leadership and expertise in cooking and entertaining provides the inspiration and education for our customers to step out in style and cook with confidence.”
As the national leader in outdoor furniture and décor, Frontgate prides itself not only on the exceptional quality of its products, but also on its exclusive designs that combine function and style. The launch of the Outdoor Kitchen collection does that and more, delivering premium entertainment solutions you won’t find anywhere else. “We are excited to expand our extensive assortment of outdoor furniture by adding these collections to allow our customers to spend more time outdoors hosting family and friends,” says Bazzone.
Frontgate’s partnership with Chef Symon will not only serve customers, but also communities that continue to experience devastating losses as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Frontgate has pledged to donate $25,000 to the Michael D. Symon Foundationwho serves Cleveland area food banks, the Salvation Army, restaurant and hotel workers and their families, among others. “We are proud to help Michael’s goals for his Foundation and to help members of the communities he serves,” Bazzone said.
