Funding Purpose:

Food trailer and equipment purchase

Carter's BBQ is obsessed with keeping the traditions of smoked BBQ offering dry-rubbed, low and slow BBQ with a Cleveland twist. We offer smoked meats like ribs, shoulder, brisket and chicken with hearty homemade side dishes at reasonable prices. Our target consumer, in general, would be hungry BBQ lovers. This is a customer-based business and when it comes to customer satisfaction and bonding with the community the business serves, Darren is the constant who effectively brings these two together. He is a community-minded individual who is very active and has spearheaded many events within his own neighborhood.  He is founder of Cleveland Dads Group, and All Geared Up - A Family Bike Event. He recently (before Covid-19) coordinated a local Rib Cook Off.  His love for community, cooking and serving others will be the company's biggest advantage. One major factor in any business is repeat customers and Darren's charismatic enthusiasm with people is key. Not only will people love the food, but they will also love Darren.
Our Ambition

We work full-time at the moment, but the hope is for the business to grow for at least an early retirement for one or both of us. The next few years we will be focused on averaging 3 to 4 events (pop-ups, catering, etc.) per month building up a solid customer base for our business.
