In October of 2015, we held a GRIZZLY Cookware pre-launch party at The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery. Writers, restaurateurs, foodies and friends were invited to see the unveiling of our innovative cast iron skillet with all its cooking benefits, in person. We were thrilled for the opportunity to provide our local community in Charlotte with a sneak peek of GRIZZLY Cookware! Talented chefs from Johnson & Wales paired their culinary skills with our skillet during live cooking demonstrations! Check out some of our favorite photos from this memorable night!

Guests mingled inside and outside to see demonstrations, sample dishes, and hear more about the skillet from team GRIZZLY.
We love looking back on these photos and remembering the excitement from our pre-launch party in October, but we are even more excited to near the official launch of GRIZZLY Cookware in the coming months! We can’t wait for you to #getGrizzly.
