Doing things the hard way
Who we are
We’re proud to serve the flavor of America. Every day, we’re smoking tastes of the nation, from Kansas City to the Carolinas, and sharing our passion for the art and soul of BBQ.
We're passionate about barbeque, but our first love is really our core values:
Nothing matters more than the safety and well-being of our teammates and guests
We treat everyone, guests and teammates alike, how we should all be treated in the first place
We aren't exaggerating when we say we've been doing things the hard way since 1999
A note from Rick
When we opened the first City Barbeque in 1999, we thought we wanted to serve folks the best barbeque they’d ever had—but it didn’t take long for us to realize we wanted to serve more than just great food. Today, our goal is to serve and create happiness, and we look forward to doing just that for folks across the country for years to come.
I’m honored to lead a team of amazing, hard-working people, who wake up early every day to smoke the city’s best barbeque.
We strive to be a positive force in the lives of our teammates and are committed to serving and creating happiness for each other, as well as for our guests.
Our “people first” philosophy truly sets the tone for how you just fall in love with our culture.
We know barbeque brings people together and we are honored to be part of those moments of togetherness.
I love that we’re investing in technology to enable strategic growth, and to get more BBQ to our guests in the way that’s most convenient for them.
As I’ve continued to grow in my life and career, I’ve learned a strong leader is someone who empowers people.
I’m excited to be part of this team and honored to help grow this great brand.
