Bar-B-Cutie Franchise Opens New Location in McAllen, Texas

Iconic BBQ franchise opens new franchise location as it plans rapid expansion in the Lonestar State

Bar-B-Cutie Franchise recently announced the opening of its newest store in McAllen, Texas.

QSR Magazine published an article heralding the opening:

“Orlie Ochoa, owner and operator of the McAllen Bar-B-Cutie, brings extensive restaurant experience to the new location,” the article states. “The restaurant is serving its customers through fast-casual dining, drive-thru, and catering services. Its menu features a variety of smoked meats, all cooked on location; a host of Southern sides, including fried pickles and fresh cut fries; and all-time favorite desserts like peach cobbler, pecan pie, and banana pudding.”

The article mentions that the new location features a play area for children.

“There are very few options for people who want to take their families out for good, healthy, quick-casual food. By providing many healthy food choices like brisket, salads, and mashed potatoes, a play area for the kids and a terrific, family atmosphere, we hope to fill that void,” Ochoa says in the article.

“We are both proud and excited to have Orlie Ochoa in the Bar-B-Cutie family and expect great things from his store. He brings enthusiasm, a passion for serving great quality food, and a total commitment towards the service of his customers, which is what Bar-B-Cutie was founded on and kept us in business and growing for over 60 years,” says Ronnie McFarland, company CEO in the article.
