PRO Q Presence at US Pro Circuit

Post  Life of Brine on Sun Mar 28, 2010 3:32 pm

Mack, et al,


You have got to get a US distributor!


I have just started competing in the Florida BBQ Association, and the Kansas City BBQ Society events here in the southeast US. I spend half of my waking hours discussing your product with visitors and other competitors. They love the versatility, ingenuity and the quality of the cookers. People are amazed to see backyard cookers on the pro circuit, but when they taste the 'Q' they are hooked. I tell them they can get the same high quality results at home on their own patio without the expense of the cookers the big boys use.

I could have probably sold a half dozen Excel 20's at each of the events I have attended this year. I can only refer them to Ebay and other web sites to look for the units. I am sure due to availability may are shifting their purchasing power to the other guys.

Please, please, please, let me know when you have a US distributor! Heck let me know what your terms are and I will see about raising the funds to distribute here in the States.

Thanks for a quality product. I would love to see more of them out there, on the circuit and in peoples backyard.

Shrike,
Thanks for the effort the only thing PRO Q products Fred's still carries are remnant stock from 2008. In other words the only thing he has is WSM stacker units.

Marc thanks for the kind words and for your support of our products. I would like to point out that Fred's is no longer a distributor of ProQ products, although as you suggest, he may have a small amount of stock remaining.

We have branded the ProQ Excel 20 for Napoleon and this is available in the USA, they call it an Apollo AS300K.

We are still looking for a distributor to take on the market over there, but as it will require an investment of around $60 000.00, it's a tough one in view of the current economic climate.

Once again thank you for spreading the word.

I have spoken to several Napoleon dealers here in the US and they chuckle at me. Seems they might carry the Napoleon brand fire places or heating and cooling but they do not carry the smoker. I will give Napoleon in Canada a shout and see if they can hook me up with information on what dealers in the States carry the cookers,

$60 K US?
