Bar-B-Cutie Smokehouse is a 65 year old fast-casual barbecue restaurant and catering company that is currently growing through U.S. Franchising.

The model has seven revenue streams: Dine In, Take Out, Drive Thru, Craft Beer Bar, Retail, Holiday Meals, *Outside Delivery (in select areas)
Bar-B-Cutie has quite a story as any business would that had actually made it in business for 65 years. Like any business we have made mistakes but the good news is we have made the mistakes for our franchisees. If it could be tried we tried it and if our way did not work we improved it.
Bar-B-Cutie opened it's doors back in 1950 on Murfreesboro Road in Nashville, Tennessee serving short orders (known today as fast food) and the best Bar-B-Q found anywhere, using car hops to deliver our delicious food to our customers' automobiles. A small dining room accommodated 16 to 20 guests.
Eddie and Mildred McFarland purchased the restaurant in 1958, expanding the menu with Southern Comfort Foods, adding a much larger dining area and the business began to prosper beyond their expectations. Bar-B-Cutie soon became a family affair and now the McFarland Family is enjoying its third generation of management.
After several years of prospering we knew we had the right stuff and knew it was time to grow. We knew the Bar-B-Cutie concept could work in Anytown, USA but we also knew we wanted owner/operators. We knew we could train people to execute the concept, so in 2003 we started our franchise and support company.
We now are poised to grow our BRAND in the U.S. as well as internationally. We know this because our food is great and our pricing is reasonable and when you put that in a clean and comfortable atmosphere coupled with superb service you have a winner. We truly care about our franchisees as well as our combined customers. We welcome you to take a closer look at our franchise opportunity!
We want to thank you ahead of time for taking the time to find out more about how you can obtain a slice of the American dream by owning a Bar-B-Cutie restaurant. Bar-B-Cutie wants potential franchisees to fully understand what they are getting into. Our style is to lay the cards out on the table so you can make a well informed decision. When you have been in business for 65 years you understand how things work and that is why we are so proud to offer you the opportunity to join our franchise family.
