Midlothian, VA Grand Opening on December 16
MISSION BBQ opened its 88th location in Midlothian, VA on Monday, December 16. The event began at 12 noon with the singing of Our National Anthem performed live by a local Uniformed American Hero. The ribbon cutting ceremony followed immediately afterwards.
This location is the 18th in Virginia and the second location in Midlothian for the restaurant known for its traditional American BBQ with a hefty side of patriotism. For co-founders Bill Kraus and Steve Newton, the opening of another Virginia location brings the growth of MISSION BBQ full circle. The restaurants will continue to expand throughout the eastern half of the United States with current plans to end 2019 with over 90 units of operation.
As is tradition with the opening of every MISSION BBQ, the Midlothian location hosted charity nights throughout the week leading up to the Grand Opening with all sales donated to organizations chosen by local fire and police departments in the Midlothian Community, as well as the USO of Hampton Roads and Central Virginia.
