The owners of MT’s Smokin’ BBQ in Muncie thought east-central Indiana lacked good barbecue. But all that changed when they started their food truck. Offering barbecue cooked using popular Muncie-area recipes, they quickly became a hit! Thanks to its soaring popularity, in 2017 they moved from a food truck to sit-down restaurant. Inside seating is for 36. They still offer carryout and special event catering.
MT’s BBQ’s reputation is for premium meats and delicious food. Cooking the meat low and slow over a wood fire infuses the meat with a rich, smoky taste. They specialize in making barbecue sauces in-house. Customers near and far come for the mouth-watering meats, killer barbecue sauces, and delicious sides. Because there is no direct competition, MT’s BBQ owns the market.
The Seller believes a new owner/operator could increase sales through:
• Offering Delivery. Start offering delivery to local neighborhoods and nearby Ball State University.
• Extending Hours. Adding weekend hours and staying open later on weeknights.
• Adding a Food Truck. Making it easier for catering and offering food at local events, festivals, etc.
• Community Participation. Starting to attend local events, festivals, fundraisers, etc. again.
According to the Seller, the best way to boost sales is to build relationships with Ball State including faculty members and students. There are several growth avenues here. However, the Seller is unable to pursue them. A new owner/operator can easily take advantage of and grow sales.
MT’s Smokin’ BBQ for sale has everything needed to grow to the next level. Trained staff, no direct competition, a loyal fan base, and growth avenues are in place. As an energetic and ambitious individual with vision, it’s a great place to build on. In fact, you can expand it or even start a franchise. Don’t miss out on your opportunity!
