Owners Retiring after 13+ Years
This BBQ restaurant is genuine southern barbecue at its best. They serve lunch, dinner, and an extremely busy breakfast crowd. They're in a great location in the community's high traffic center, located in Riverside County. The restaurant is surrounded by a plethora of residential condos and apartments, making this destination the premiere spot for patrons with hungry bellies!
Guests entering the space are greeted by fresh, scratch made desserts and the delicious aromas of BBQ from Missouri, Kansas City and the Carolinas. The restaurant is well built, with plenty of inside seating (96 seats and a dining/bar counter), a large 40 seat outdoor patio, and a kitchen featuring excellent use of space. The veteran staff keeps the facility clean and organized, and even frequently repaints to maintain that fresh, clean feel. The kitchen is equipped with well-maintained appliances from top-of-the-line manufacturers such as Blodget, True, Turbo Air, Hoshizaki and Southern Pride, plus a 20+ ft exhaust hood and 24,000 gallon grease trap that is routinely cleaned.
The time has come for these restaurateurs to retire, but there is still a great deal of room to grow this business. The owners revamped their website in response to the pandemic, but that's just the tip of the digital iceberg. They only have 2500 Facebook and 500+ Instagram followers; invest in social media to increase and engage followers. They offer catering, but does not have a catering manager; hire and actively market at the local level to civic organizations, private companies and fundraisers. Add additional TVs to the patio and bar, promote all major sporting events, and offer wing, beer and pizza promotions! The current owners are closed on Mondays and close at 8:30pm on the weekends: extend the weekend hours and open for Monday night football! Plus, current owners have room for additional cost control on payroll and food costs ... another spot to improve profits.
This BBQ restaurant is a turnkey, well established, profitable restaurant that brings the best of America's BBQ belt to Riverside County! Save money and time on start-up costs, permitting, licensing and building a business from scratch and instead invest your working capital in advertising, marketing, and catering.
