One of the most American things is BBQ. An emerging BBQ brand to consider is Bombers BBQ. The brand was founded in 2013 and began offering franchise opportunities in 2020. Founder Chris Cole who grew up with BBQ and smoked meats as a passion. David, his father, grew up in North Carolina, declared the "Pig pickin' capital of the world" in 1972, and on visits to see family they would often enjoy a great plate of bbq. When deciding to open a restaurant, it was important for Cole to offer something new to the region that residents could not get anywhere else. Few bbq restaurants outside of the south truly take the time to cook with real hardwood, low and slow, and to stand by the never serve day old BBQ principle. This would be a core principle at the conception of Bombers BBQ, which still continues to this day.
