Some dads golf, go on a hunting trip, rebuild a car engine or erect a man cave in the backyard with their sons.
But when Dan Thiessen wanted to take on an endeavor with his sons, he decided to start a company – appropriately named Dansons – with them.
“I didn’t know that we had a grand vision. Dad wanted to start something with his boys… an opportunity to work together,” Jeff Thiessen said of the family pellet grill business his father and brothers launched in their native Canada in 1999.
In 2017, the Thiessen's moved the headquarters to Phoenix, fueled by rapid growth and opportunities in the grill market.
