The Outdoor GreatRoom Company Employees

The Outdoor Greatroom Company™ has everything you need to create your dream outdoor room. We design, manufacture and sell pergolas, outdoor kitchens, grills, luxury outdoor furniture, fireplaces, fire pits, lighting and heating products.

Located in the heart of Minnesota, The Outdoor Greatroom Company™ now has a beautiful Outdoor Room Showroom, featuring everything from weatherproof furniture and outdoor fire pits, to outdoor pergolas and grills.


In 1975, Dan and Ron Shimek started a company based on a simple idea: to create a cozy fire at the touch of a button. Their company grew to become its own category in the home products industry: Heat-N-Glo®.

In 2000, the Shimeks moved on with a different idea: to create an outdoor grill that would take the guesswork out of grilling. And that led to the founding of a company with an even broader vision: to make outdoor living match the elegance and comfort found indoors.

The company became The Outdoor GreatRoom Company™.
