In 1953, Midco designed an innovative new charcoal-free, gas-fired broiler for famed Chicago restaurant Don Roth's Black Hawk Restaurant. In time, industry demand for this exceptional development resulted in the creation of the EmberGlo division, a branch of Midco International dedicated to the needs of the food service industry.

Over the years, the EmberGlo division has expanded to encompass not only gas and electric broilers but a full line of heavy-duty food steamers and commercial kitchen accessories. Although the product line has expanded, the essential elements of EmberGlo's success have remained the same quality, reliability, durability and customer service.

As a manufacturer of Broilers and Steamers for 60 Years, EmberGlo's popular Gas Broilers are carefully designed to be all-ceramic, open-hearth, charcoal-free and include the exclusive patented Flaretrol system to control flame flare ups and has the added benefit of No Messy Grease pan. They also provide food Steamers for counter tops that can be direct water hook up or self contained. Front open models can fit under the counter.

Made in Chicago Featured Company: Sara P. Lovejoy

Posted by Marketing Support on Aug 24, 2018 1:08:42 PM

At Sara P. Lovejoy, clothes are designed from classic ideas with a modern edge - including pockets, linings, and unique details in all designs. They always try to keep duality in mind, and aim for a classic and modern feel of easy elegance. Sara's design philosophy is “ladylike cool”.

About the Designer – I grew up in western NY known for its snowy winters. In high school my love of art turned towards clothing design and I began to sell one-of-a kind items at boutiques and music festivals.  I knew my dream of art school would only happen if I just decided to do it, so I dissolved my growing business and moved to the suburbs of Chicago. I commuted back and forth between School of the Art Institute of Chicago and working as a manager of a fabric store. During my last year of school I was hired as an illustrator and graphic artist at a pattern-drafting software company. A few years in I decided that my happiness was gonna have to be me working for myself and creating garments that I wanted to wear.

Made in Chicago Featured Company: Alyssa Kristin

Posted by Marketing Support on Aug 10, 2018 2:00:00 PM

Alyssa Kristin provides brides with gowns that are chic yet timeless, dramatic yet understated. Her designs effortlessly balance soft textures, blush/creamy hues and an abundance of tulle, with plunging necklines, open backs and figure-hugging silhouettes.  Alyssa’s design philosophy enables women to embrace their femininity and her brides confidently epitomize style and grace. 

Alyssa Kahle, CPA-turned-designer and Owner of Alyssa Kristin, became inspired to create her label after her own wedding gown shopping experience. Alyssa searched high and low (easily trying on over 150 gowns) and became frustrated with the lack of tasteful gowns that suited her personality; everything was too encrusted and over-the-top or too plain Jane.  Alyssa, a CPA working in public accounting, decided to take a risk – she found a less demanding job and made her own dress.  Through the experience, Alyssa found her calling and created Alyssa Kristin to help brides escape the ‘fluff and frill’ and find a gown that makes them feel beautiful and, more importantly, like themselves.
