NORTH VENICE, Fla.-Tervis will say "Cheers" to America's favorite mailman John Ratzenberger during The Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market next month. Ratzenberger will be the guest of honor at a meet and greet event Jan. 9 from 4-7 p.m. in the Tervis showroom Suite #840, Building 2.

Ratzenberger 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." The show will feature the best in today's American-made companies, including small batch local manufacturers, hip new brands, and household names. Tervis will be featured in one of the first episodes.

"I'm excited to be working with Tervis and to feature their company on my new TV show. 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, who's also known for his role as Cliff, the lovable postal carrier on "Cheers" and has had a voice part in Pixar's lineup of feature films to date, including "Cars," "A Bug's Life," and "Toy Story."

"Purchasing products in the U.S. ensures that people in our country have jobs and that quality products continue to be made here," said 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."
