Dragan Concepts is a family run business based in Portland, Oregon. Our innovative products are based on solutions for the needs of the households of our friends and family, and these ideas have been thoughtfully developed to appeal to a wide array of consumers. The history of the Dragan family is uniquely American – The story is told best by inventor, mother, and professional caregiver Lumi Dragan: Like many good people around the world, my husband and I dreamed of bettering our lives by coming to America from our home in Romania. In 1995, we entered our names in the annual visa lottery conducted by the USA and we won!
We feel very fortunate to be in this wonderful country, which has given us so many opportunities, including now the opportunity to develop our inventions and bring them to market. My husband and I have been married for 27 years. We have two beautiful children. For the past twelve years, we have provided 24/7 care for the elderly.
We are especially proud that our Adult Foster Care Home has received the Better Business Bureau's 2009 Torch Award for Customer Service for Oregon and SW Washington – Doubly so because our residents are really part of our extended family. In 2007 on Christmas Eve, an invention was born: The EZ Master Double Boiler Mixing Bowl. At first just a dream, now that dream is becoming real: A product that everybody can have in the kitchen – Households, restaurants, hotels and bakeries. Lumi’s first homemade video for the EZ Master was an Internet hit. When a professional infomercial was recently filmed, Lumi knew the EZ master was a sensation: Everyone involved, from the camera operator, to the actor, to the owner of the home where we filmed declared “I want one!” Every once in awhile an invention comes along to solve a specific problem, and when people see it, they know immediately it can help them. It’s so encouraging and that feedback fuels the creative process. The Dragans continue to develop shows & conventions.
