Bar-B-Cutie BBQ Franchise Continues Rapid Expansion in Texas

Authentic BBQ franchise announces two new locations to open in the Lone Star state

Bar-B-Cutie, one of the nation’s most iconic and authentic BBQ franchise brands, is expanding in Texas after more entrepreneurs are discovering the ease of the new SmokeHouse business model.

Launched in 2015, Bar-B-Cutie’s SmokeHouse concept is a successful attempt to simplify our brand’s iconic 60-year-old business model, making Bar-B-Cutie easier to own than ever before. The results have been exceptional, and now existing Bar-B-Cutie franchisees are reinvesting in our brand by signing on to open new Bar-B-Cutie SmokeHouse locations.

The restaurant plans a grand opening for Weslaco, Texas in Spring 2018. Bar-B-Cutie is scheduled to open two more locations in San Antonio, expanding our footprint in the growing city.

“We’re beyond thrilled with the momentum our new SmokeHouse concept is generating,” says Brett McFarland, COO with Bar-B-Cutie. “The fact that existing franchisees are rapidly expanding to multi-unit ownership makes us incredibly proud. We’ve worked extremely hard to simplify the business model, to make owning a business more accessible to entrepreneurs who have a passion for barbecue.”

Founded in 1950, Bar-B-Cutie is family-owned and run by CEO Ronnie McFarland, whose passion for BBQ is equal to his desire to see entrepreneurs succeed in a business that they’ve always dreamed of owning.

Bar-B-Cutie aims to be much more affordable than other barbecue concepts and QSR brands. To increase the level of profitability our franchisees experience, Bar-B-Cutie is designed to keep labor and food costs low and keep operating costs down. Bar-B-Cutie’s flexible footprint makes securing a perfect location for your franchise easier and shortens your build-out time so you can get your business up and running quicker. We also provide exceptional initial and ongoing training, offering the tools and resources needed for franchisees to grow their businesses.

“We’ve been in the barbecue business for over 65 years, and it’s been a blessing for myself and my family, as well as all of our franchise owners,” Ronnie says. “I’ve been in the barbecue business since I was 12 years old, and if there’s a mistake to be made, we’ve made it. But we’ve learned from those mistakes and have developed a business model that is easy to own, has the potential for high margins, and is proven to be successful. Barbecue has been good to us, and that’s why we’re in franchising — because we want to give as many people as possible the opportunity to do as well in this business as we have.”
