demand leads to building at lake of the ozarks

Designer Outdoor Kitchens, Inc. is now building at the “Lake of the Ozarks”.
The lake is a perfect fit for our business.  Entertaining is a way of life an is  one reason why more and more people are relocating to the Ozarks either as full time residents or buying second homes as retreats where they can get away to play and relax.

After studying the market and open discussion with a number of business owners and home builders D.O.K. has expanded to the Lake of the Ozarks. We have been interested in this market for some time, said Dick Atkins and it appears the timing is right.

The lake is a perfect fit for our business.  Entertaining is a way of life an is  one reason why more and more people are relocating to the Ozarks either as full time residents or buying second homes as retreats where they can get away to play and relax.

“The increasing popularity of Outdoor Kitchens along with the fact that lake homeowners spend a great deal of time out of doors should provide a large following for our products and services”, Atkins said.

Our goal is to have a showroom in place by mid to late April of ’07.  Until that time we will receive sales inquires through our Lenexa, KS office @ (913) 492-1255.

Kalamazoo Gourmet...

"a cross between a hummer & bentley"
Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet turns out models like the Bread Breaker Two Dual-Fuel, an $11,290 stainless steel sculpture made of 500 pounds of laser-cut steel.

Are you there? Yeah you, the one kicking back next to your modest backyard grill, sipping a beer while you watch the burgers brown.

You may think your meat is sizzling nicely.

But picture this: You slap that ground beef down on a gigantic stainless steel monster as long as you are tall and turn it on in a whufff of flames. It's fed by a gas pipeline — no mere propane tanks here. Turn on all the burners and you're looking at up to 150,000 BTUs of [cooking] power, or enough to heat about three 2,000-square-foot houses.

OK, so it'll set you back about $10,000 or so. But your grill would be the undisputed king of the neighborhood, the altar at which all other grills — including the one you're using now — would bow down and worship...

Don't feel bad about lusting after a luxury grill... If you live in Michigan, it's almost your civic duty. After all, one of the most decorated makers of ultra-high-end grills is Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet, located right here in the mitten, which turns out models like the Bread Breaker Two Dual-Fuel, an $11,290 stainless steel sculpture made of 500 pounds of laser-cut steel.

Overdoing it? Sure. But in the same way your head turns when a Ferrari drives by and your eyes widen when you see some celeb's indoor polo field, there's something irresistible on this most-popular-of-grilling-holidays about looking at the grills of your dreams: those flaming dragons of excess that define the most luxurious outdoor kitchens on the planet.

The Bread Breaker is even historic: The grill is made by a fourth-generation metal master whose great-grandfather made one of the first grills in the country. And it's equal opportunity: It doesn't matter whether you like wood, charcoal or gas, since the Bread Breaker accommodates all three.
