About The Rub Bar-B-Que
New Year’s Day 2011, the team gathered ’round a backyard fire pit. The talk of a real restaurant was serious. Three investors came forward, locations were discussed, and Dan agreed to leave his corporate restaurant job and pursue his dream of managing his own restaurant. The three respective wives quickly dismissed their husbands’ silly drunken discussions, until one day “the perfect location” became available. Quickly talk turned to menus and furniture and marketing plans. Dan imagined a clean and modern fast-casual concept where diners weren’t at the mercy of wait staff but food was of the highest quality. The dream was realized one afternoon in the winter of 2011 when the men signed a lease, met with architects, and started cleaning the place out…to make the first home for The Rub Bar-B-Que and Catering.
