Real Fyre | RH Peterson Brand Story
REAL FYRE | RH PETERSON HISTORY
While enjoying dinner one night in Pasadena, California, Robert Peterson watched as the staff incessantly fussed over the wood burning fireplace. Robert looked on throughout the evening as they continuously worked to keep the fire ablaze. This immediately sparked an idea in the engineer's head. He went back to his workshop to try and solve this ongoing problem. Peterson created a solution that would eventually become gas logs as we know them today.
Mr. Peterson proudly took his prototype back to the restaurant to demonstrate its ease and functionality. Before long, his creations were found as focal points in restaurants and lounges across Southern California. Robert quickly opened a small shop in Eagle Rock, California and began producing gas log sets.
One of the shop's first employees, Vince Jankowski was known as a skilled wood worker. Vince looked to nature for inspiration. He quickly innovated the idea of individually hand-crafted logs. Vince's expertise paired with Peterson's vision gave way to their original Golden Oak Log Set. This log set quickly became the standard of the industry. Soon after, these gas log creations were sold under the brand name Real Fyre.
