People often ask me how I got into this business. After all, this is a very narrow niche that I have carved out for myself. I always tell the story of a young guy that wanted to make a living but didn’t have time for college. In 1990 I was working in an auto parts store. I was at work every night and on the weekends. I needed that paycheck, but I had my eyes and ears open for greater opportunities. A co-worker of mine had a friend that owned a gas grill store in the Spring Branch area of Houston. He said they were hiring installers, so I applied for the job. Well as fate would have it, I got hired.
One of the best ways to learn a business, or anything for that matter, is to help someone that already knows it. So, for the next 8 years I hung-out, helped and listened to a man that had 50 years of experience. I learned the ins and outs of the recreational gas products business. In 1998, I became an independent contractor, providing installation and field service work for a few grill stores around the Houston area.
After a while I realized it was better to sell the products you are installing. In 2002 I started Gas Product Services. Together with my son Brian and 1 or 2 other employees, we at Gas Product Services offer sales, service and installation of gas grills, gas lights, gas logs and a variety of outdoor fire features, like fire pits, fire bowls, luau torches and tiki torches. Whether it’s a gas grill, a gas light, gas logs, direct vent fireplaces, outdoor kitchens or outdoor fire features, if you need it fixed or you want to replace existing products, or you want to install something new, call Gas Product Services for all your recreational gas product needs.
