Barbeque is a popular menu choice for many people. Here is the South, there is competition in the barbeque segment with many good operators in the market. This restaurant has weathered the competitive cycle for several decades; having a track record of longevity in the business is a real plus.

Increased social and media promotion would be expected to add more revenue without adding more personnel or equipment. A strong source of potential new business would be to step up marketing of catering services for sporting events, weddings, and corporate functions.
