by Kristi Marvin on 2022-05-19 at 12:28pm

This week we will be speaking with Roger Dahle, Founder and CEO of Blackstone Products, which signed a $900 million combination agreement with Ackrell SPAC Partners I in December.

Blackstone has channeled the power of TikTok to popularize its line of outdoor griddles and found ways to capture efficiencies by vertically integrating its supply chain in China. We talk about the future of backyard products in a post-pandemic world, and how Blackstone initially embarked on a private equity path that became a SPAC path.
