Red Hot & Blue BBQ Restaurant Expands Franchise Opportunities

The Red Hot & Blue BBQ Restaurant chain is offering franchise owner/operator opportunities in Baltimore, Maryland; Houston, Texas; Eastern North Carolina and Nashville and Knoxville, Tennessee - and markets east of the Rocky Mountains.

Winston-Salem, NC (PRWEB) April 29, 2015 - Red Hot & Blue Restaurants, Inc. President, Randy McCann, confirmed that the national barbecue restaurant chain is offering new franchise opportunities nationwide.

Red Hot & Blue is a full-service, casual-themed barbecue restaurant and full service caterer. Red Hot & Blue smokes barbecue on premise fresh daily, the old-fashioned way–low and slow–over hickory logs so the enticing aroma envelops your senses as you enter the restaurant. The menu features delicious hickory-smoked meats including: award-winning ribs, authentic Memphis-style barbecue, hickory-smoked chicken wings, smoked sausage, fresh beef burgers, Southern-fried seafood, salads and Southern homemade 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 corporate expansion plan includes connecting with interested franchise owner/operators in Baltimore, Maryland; Houston, Texas; Eastern North Carolina and Nashville and Knoxville, Tennessee”, said McCann. “We are open to any markets across the nation east of the Rocky Mountains that would support our casual, Blues themed, Memphis-style barbecue concept.”

McCann continued, “It's all about the smoky flavor. Our smokin’ fresh Memphis-style barbecue is cooked low and slow for hours over hickory logs and it’s hand pulled – not chopped or pre-sauced – so our guests can enjoy the smoky full-flavor of the meat. We offer over 13 flavors of sauces and rub that diners may use to accent the flavor of the hickory-smoked meats.”

  • Review of site selection

The original Red Hot & Blue Restaurant was founded in 1988 by a group of true Southerners (including three politicians from Tennessee) and a transplanted “Yankee” who could not find authentic slow-smoked Memphis-style barbeque to their liking in the Nation’s Capital. Since its start, the Red Hot & Blue concept has found a home with multiple locations in six different states: Maryland, Missouri, New Jersey, North Carolina, Texas, and Virginia. The Red Hot & Blue mission is to “serve only the best quality authentic Memphis-style Barbeque in a fun, casual atmosphere surrounded by blues music and memorabilia.” Red Hot & Blue’s premier catering services have been serving up Southern Hospitality for over 25 years at events from birthday, anniversary, baby showers or graduation gatherings, corporate meetings and presentations, retirement parties and family reunions to casual or formal weddings and large banquets.
