This popular, profitable and authentic Southern-style BBQ take out and catering business is family run and well-established in the heart of Palm Beach County’s rapidly growing western communities. Opened over 7 years ago, it currently operates only 2 days per week, Saturdays and Sundays, during most of the year due to the owners’ involvement with several other companies. With its busiest period during the Fall and Winter seasons, about a 1/3 of all sales are accounted for in just 2 months, allowing the business to be considered as Part Time venture. There is tremendous potential to grow catering revenues, expand retail hours and days and capitalize on its existing social media marketing, with their own Facebook, Instagram, professional website, email list of clients and more. Business is fully equipped, stocked and operational, with great recipes, training and a loyal clientele. Seating for 100+ available for parties and patrons in the adjoining, palm-thatched Tiki Hut, outdoor pavilion.
Situated on an actual 80-acre working farm, in Western Palm Beach County Florida, this business is primed for continued growth. Already very popular, especially during the farm’s annual Fall Harvest Festival, drawing crowds upwards of 10,000 people daily and it's retail operations located on the grounds of this bustling and busy year-round farmer’s market. Housed in a totally customized, completely outfitted and expanded trailer, the unit is based at the Farm, but is transportable as needed. The enclosed space is fully air-conditioned and contains all stainless-steel equipment, sinks, stove and counters, with a commercial refrigerator, a double-stacked Alto-Sham and other food prep, storage and beverage dispensing equipment. Carefully planned and optimized, 4 to 6 employees can be stationed easily for maximum efficiency. The main trailer includes 2 large smokers in its own area, as well as a totally separate smoker and a char-grill mounted on another trailer for offsite catering events of up to 500 guests. A second, double-door commercial refrigerator also is included. Further, a full metal rack of cold storage space is provided in the main building of the farm. A complete equipment list is available at an appropriate time.
Tremendous potential for growth in additional, aggressive marketing and advertisement in catering. Expanding and putting to full use already existing social marketing avenues, Facebook, professional website, etc. Fully equipped and operational, great recipes and unique style of "que" make this a premiere catering operation unique to South Florida. A second location featuring to same style of foods and attentive service should not be too far in the future. Exploit and incorporate into new menu items the availability of organic, fresh farm market items readily available from the immediate market and farm. Create a symbiotic relationship with them.
True competition is virtually non existent in the immediate area and for possibly miles in all directions. Truly original primal smoked meats in there basic form are a force to be reckoned with. Using only natural hardwoods, time and the proper rubs and basting ingredients not all BBQ is the same. Cooking with smoke not fire is as old as human time and not many today are willing to go to the trouble or time and experience to produce such a product. Those who do are to be truly heralded as to being true artisans of original mankind cookery.
