Industry — BBQGrills.com continues to make headway in the industry as a leading online retailer (e-commerce) of high-quality outdoor kitchen equipment, BBQ grills, patio heaters, and outdoor patio-related products.
Ryan Maltbie, the founder of the company, said building the company was a lifelong dream that he had his heart set on since the age of 16.
"Just like many business owners and entrepreneurs, I watched my dad own his own business my whole life. To say that I've garnered everything I know about respecting customers, following through and how to run a business through him successfully is an understatement. That man single-handedly made me the business owner that I am today," shared Ryan.
In 2016, Ryan purchased with a domain broker to secure BBQGrill.com and BBQGrills.com, which he kept in his back pocket, knowing he would be using them as a stepping stone one day.
Over a period of 12 months, the team worked day in and day out to produce what customers now know as BBQGrills.com.
"It was not an easy feat. I knew there would be financial struggles and bumpy roads ahead, but I never thought they'd be as difficult as they ended up being," shared Ryan, as he stressed that his objective was for the company to be self-funded, with no investors or outside money in place.
Ryan only had $600 during the launch of BBQGrills.com in 2019 but has sailed smoothly and built up a nice nest egg of capital.
The company has quickly become one of the biggest online retailers of gas grills, outdoor kitchen equipment, and other outdoor patio-related items in California.
Ryan said the family-owned, operated, and argued over business is held together by the fabric of bringing traditional family values to a quickly growing internet environment.
Ryan and his wife, Samantha, have been in the outdoor kitchen/grilling industry for over 12 years.
Samantha says BBQGrills.com ultimately aims to help families come together and share everlasting memories similar to the ones they value with their own four children.
"We aim to redefine the industry, beginning with our customers, and provide them a genuine experience when building their own dream outdoor space," she says.
On October 10th, 2020, Ryan's 30th Birthday, the company hit $1 Million dollars in annual sales revenue.
"The emotion, the raw emotion of looking at each other, and this 7 figure number brought so much joy to our lives. Money is money, it's not worth the paper it's printed on, but the joy, heartfelt love of knowing, knowing that this 'thing' we've been building for the last year and a half has just crossed a mark in under a year that very few get to see…it was magical," shared Ryan.
Today, BBQGrills.com has provided over 5,000 customers with unparalleled customer service, designed many beautiful outdoor kitchens, worked on hundreds of luxury projects, built large commercial portfolios, and has become one of California's largest online retailers in the industry.
BBQGrills also announce that it is the newest online retailer of Weber Grills – a brand that, at its core, represents everything BBQ. Ryan said the company is beyond thrilled to offer its incredible lineup of products and cannot wait to grow this relationship with its team.
"I'd like to personally thank the Weber team for trusting in our vision, this partnership has been in the works for years now, and I'm beyond thrilled to work with this company," said Ryan.
