Red Hot & Blue Restaurants Opens A New Location in Cary, North Carolina

Todd Chriscoe, Operating Partner of the soon-to-be-opened Cary North Carolina Red Hot & Blue restaurant, teamed up with Bill Holt and Stephen Bell who currently operate the North Raleigh Red Hot & Blue restaurant to bring great Memphis-style BBQ to the Cary community.

Cary, North Carolina (PRWEB) December 31, 2014 - Red Hot & Blue Restaurants, Inc. President, Randy McCann, announced the opening of a new barbecue restaurant location in Cary, North Carolina. The restaurant located at the Waverly Place Shopping Center is scheduled to open mid-January 2015.

Todd Chriscoe, Operating Partner of the soon-to-be-opened Cary, North Carolina Red Hot & Blue restaurant, is a North Carolina native who knows Barbecue. You might even say it's in his blood. Chriscoe grew up in Eastern North Carolina where his father and family friends regularly held giant pig picking events when the tobacco was put up at the end of the season. So it's second nature to Chriscoe to stoke a hickory fire, to cook the pork, low and slow, to seal in the delicious flavor of authentic barbeque.

Chriscoe and two of his long-time friends, Bill Holt and Stephen Bell discussed opening a second Red Hot & Blue franchise in the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area for several years. Currently, Holt and Bell own/operate the Red Hot & Blue restaurant at 6615 Falls of Neuse Road in Raleigh, NC. When a property became available at the new Waverly Place Shopping Center in Cary, NC - the discussions materialized into construction plans.

Two years in planning, building and designing, the Cary Red Hot & Blue restaurant will open in January 2015. Red Hot & Blue is a full-service, casual-themed barbeque restaurant chain and caterer featuring delicious award-winning ribs, authentic Memphis-style barbeque, hickory-smoked chicken wings, and Southern sides and desserts. The atmosphere is steeped in legendary and contemporary blues music and delivers a large dose of Southern hospitality in a fun and entertaining dining environment. The core of Red Hot & Blue's offerings is hickory-smoked meat - ribs, pulled pork barbeque, smoked-chicken, tender beef brisket, smoked-sausage, southern-fried seafood and a line of branded barbeque sauces.

Robert Friedman, Publisher of Attorney At Law Magazine in the Raleigh-Durham Research Triangle community was excited when he heard that Red Hot & Blue was opening a new restaurant close to his home. Friedman said, "The North Raleigh Red Hot & Blue serves incredible BBQ. Now they're bringing people of Cary a treat (again)! Waverly Place in Cary..the once and future home of Red Hot & Blue for great Memphis BBQ in NC."
