Actor John Ratzenberger will be a special guest at the Tervis showroom during the Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market at AmericasMart, Atlanta. A meet and greet event will be held Thursday, January 9 from 4 to 7 p.m.

Ratzenberger, known for his role as Cliff on the sitcom "Cheers," also produced and hosted “Made in America,” a show for the Travel Channel, wrote a book entitled We’ve Got it Made in America: A Common Man’s Salute to an Uncommon Country, and is now in the process of developing a new show: “John Ratzenberger’s American Made.” Tervis, which is Made in the USA, will be featured in an upcoming episode.

“I’m excited to be working with Tervis and to feature their company on my new TV show. There couldn’t be a nicer group of people helping to spread the message that in order to keep America strong we have to support American manufacturing,” said Ratzenberger.

“Purchasing products in the U.S. ensures that people in our country have jobs and that quality products continue to be made here,” added Tervis president and CEO, Pat Redmond. “We are proud to support John in his efforts to educate consumers about the importance of supporting American manufacturers.”
