Char-Broil’s Grilling Team Tour was designed to provide Hispanic consumers with the opportunity to experience first-hand the wide array of grills available for cooks of varying abilities. According to a survey* on the grilling preferences of Hispanic consumers conducted by Char-Broil, 80% of Hispanics grill outdoors for their families more than 3-4 times a month. So, it is not surprising that with the onset of good weather, Hispanics take the opportunity to plan outdoor social events, such as barbecues, to spend time with family and friends.
