Bar-B-Cutie SmokeHouse Tapped for Amazon Restaurant Delivery in Nashville

• Authentic Barbecue chain is one of the first restaurants included on tech giant’s new mobile delivery service
• Quality of food and operating hours were key factors in Bar-B-Cutie being chosen as inaugural restaurant for Amazon’s new delivery service

NASHVILLE TN-November 1, 2018

NASHVILLE, TN – Bar-B-Cutie SmokeHouse, one of the most iconic and authentic BBQ franchise brands, is proud to be included on Amazon Restaurants, the tech-giant’s new mobile delivery service that will begin operating in Nashville in Fall 2018.  Because the market for US restaurant delivery orders is expected to grow to $76 billion in 2022, from $43 billion today, according to Cowen & Co, companies are capitalizing on this growth. GrubHub (GRUB) (which Bar-B-Cutie currently uses to delivery its products) is up almost 40% year-to-date.

For over 65 years, Bar-B-Cutie has excelled in delivering traditional, pit BBQ to the Nashville market. The brand’s diverse menu features a wide array of smoked meats, from the perfectly smoked pork and tender brisket, to hand-rubbed Turkey Sandwiches, as well as several sides including whipped potatoes, fried okra and more. Bar-B-Cutie is ready to satisfy Nashville’s BBQ craving, and now with Amazon Restaurants, the brand’s customers do not have to leave their house to get it.

“We’re very excited to be an early adopter of Amazon Restaurants,” says Brett McFarland, COO of Bar-B-Cutie. “We know that anything Amazon does is bound to become enormously successful, and we’re delighted that Amazon selected our brand to meet Nashville’s demand for authentic BBQ. They chose us for the quality of our food – and because our flexible hours allow customers to order lunch and dinner well into the evening.”

“Amazon’s commitment to high quality for customers aligns perfectly with our brand,” states Ronnie McFarland, CEO of Bar-B-Cutie. “It takes decades to build a brand and only a handful of poor customers service decisions to destroy it. Amazon understands that and operates by that philosophy. We cannot wait to send the first order out with Amazon Restaurants.”

The two inaugural Bar-B-Cutie locations participating in Amazon Restaurants are:

5221 Nolensville Pike, Nashville, TN 37211
326 Harding Pl, Nashville, TN 37211

Amazon Restaurants is only available to customers of Amazon Prime, the brand’s subscription service that offers free 2-day delivery, access to music and video streaming channels, and more for a monthly or yearly fee. The new service is positioned to revolutionize the crowded mobile delivery segment by providing customers with free delivery on takeout orders from their favorite restaurants, such as Bar-B-Cutie.

Bar-B-Cutie SmokeHouse, which was founded in Nashville, TN in 1950, has eight locations in Middle TN and locations in Texas and Georgia.
