Tailgate N Go
Tailgate N Go, a 100% Colorado Company ran by the Johnson Family; Taylor, Kobe and Ron Johnson, is a portable, modular outdoor kitchen that can be setup in the backyard to the backwoods in 30 seconds. Tailgate N Go began with an unorganized camping trip in Colorado. It started off as a typical camping trip for Ron Johnson and his children Kobe (18) and Taylor (26). After unpacking their cluttered totes, the family realized they had forgotten a spatula, salt and oil – the essentials for burgers. With their picnic table looking like a tornado had gone through, and no other surface to prepare food on, Ron realized they needed a better way. They needed a fully equipped dry box that could store all the camping essentials and act as a kitchen.
