Libbey Brings a Classic Touch to American Barbeque

A long-standing trend in American cuisine is barbeque, and Libbey® Foodservice is bringing the simplicity and comfort of this trend to life. Regardless of your preference for the style of barbeque you serve – Texas, Carolinas, Kansas City or Memphis – Libbey now offers the new Cookout™ dinnerware collection with complementary flatware that can take barbeque and outdoor dining to a new level.

“Libbey’s new tableware offering is sure to elevate the American barbeque and outdoor dining experience,” said Susan J. Dountas, director of foodservice marketing for Libbey. “With products such as Cookout dinnerware and flatware and Libbey drinking jars, establishments can build a traditional outdoor American environment that will make their customers feel right at home.”

The design of Cookout is unlike any other casual dinnerware in the foodservice marketplace. The feel of a classic American barbeque and outdoor dining is unmistakable with its indentations, reminiscent of traditional white paper plates. This nine-piece collection includes plates, platters, bowls and mugs, all crafted from durable, ultra bright white porcelain that is sure to catch the eye of any casual diner.

Cookout flatware brings a splash of color to the casual tabletop. Each piece is made of durable 18/0 stainless steel with easy-to-hold, colored ABS plastic handles that add a traditional outdoor feel. Available in four colors – black, red, blue and squash – this bold flatware can be mixed and matched to accent the ultra bright white allure of Cookout dinnerware, brightening the look of any casual restaurant.

Libbey’s drinking jars add an organic, nostalgic feel to the classic American barbeque setting. These jars give traditional outdoor beverages, such as iced tea, lemonade, soda, infused water and refreshing cocktails, a rustic twist, highlighting the fresh ingredients. Available in four sizes, these jars add a coordinated and fresh presentation to an outdoor table.
