Top-selling Traeger Pellet Grills Relocates to Sugar House

Sugar House - Traeger Pellet Grills have been around for 30 years and originally set up shop in Portland, OR. Now carried in several large retailers, they offer 10 different models to fit most everyone’s needs. With their recent headquarters move from Portland to Utah, CEO Jeremy Andrus is looking forward to pulling from Utah’s diverse talent pool and growing from the current 100 employees to at least 200.

“The company  already had a sales office in Springville,” Andrus said. “ When I acquired the business about 18 months ago, we decided we needed to consolidate into a single office. I have been in Utah for over 10 years now; prior to Traeger I built Skullcandy in Park City, and I’m a big fan of Utah. Sugar House is a great up-and-coming area and it felt like a place we could create a really nice brand presence.”

To own a Traeger is to love them. With the various sizes, costs and wood pellet variations, the Traeger system is a top-selling item for good reason. Customer Tom Cook owns two ‘Lil Texas Elite’s.

“I like the fact that you can put something on the Traeger and walk away and nothing burns,” Cook says. “It will grill, smoke and even bake with minimal effort, and I have yet to have anything not turn out wonderful.”

The 28,000-square-foot space has plenty of room to house a couple hundred employees and eventually a retail space.  They will still have about 150 sales people in the field and  will continue to keep a few customer service reps in Portland, but for the most part, and for the long term of the business, Utah will be their new home
