The VertiGrille™ Story
Three years ago Dan Fulford's sons were at their backyard campfire, each cooking a single hot dog on a hanger wire. They were hungry and impatient when the eureka moment struck and they came up with the idea of modifying an old grate so one guy could cook six dogs at once. They showed their invention to Dad who became obsessed with it.
Dan made a more refined version of the grill and tested it with wings, ribs and veggies. After proving it to himself he called Joel Marks, Senior Inventor at Dan's company, Invention City and explained what was needed. Joel applied his genius to create something stable and low cost that would be easy to clean and store. The result is VertiGrille™ (patent pending).
Long-Stanton - Lead Manufacturer
VertiGrille's base will be made by Long-Stanton in Cincinnati, Ohio, where a 4" wide roll of 0.025 stainless steel will run through a progressive die that punches the holes and bends it into the final shape. The bases will be tumble deburred to remove sharp edges and then packaged together with formed and cut skewers made in Pennsylvania. Long-Stanton began business during the Civil War as a leading supplier of private currency (the Bitcoins of their time) and has been innovating ever since.
Joel Marks - Inventor
Joel has been inquiring into how things work and how they could be made to work better since he was a toddler. He has over 100 US patents and has won awards and recognition for the PowerShot staple gun, Gator-Grip universal socket and PaperPro desktop staplers. He tackles problems comprehensively with a focus on user experience as well as marketing, manufacturing and intellectual property.
