In 2010, Nadia Bruno was the Marketing Manager of the team that built the first steakhouse in the midwest featuring an integrated dry age steak glass display fridge.
Integrating the display fridge into the overall design of the restaurant was as a novel way to bring the pride of the chefs visually closer to the guests. Now the primal sections of dry age steaks were center stage, surrounded by glass, on the restaurant’s main display wall. Needless to say, the dry age steak product became an instant best seller and won multiple awards for this restaurant
This provided the inspiration for the development of a domestic version of the same eye catching product display. We became obsessed to bring this product to every steak lover's home and backyard BBQ grill. After much research, we realized that there was no ready and functional domestic dry age steak fridge available in the market. Taking the initiative, Nadia and the team went on to develop the Steaklocker® unit from conception to reality.
Forward to 2013. After many rough concept prototypes, the first domestically developed Steaklocker® fridge became a reality in December 2013. Nadia Bruno became the founder of the startup company that will bring Steaklocker® to market. Our team members are currently finalizing design, development, manufacturing and distribution of the 2014 Steaklocker® dry age fridge.
