“Virginia Barbecue offers authentic regional barbecue dishes and uses efficient equipment to prepare its food and keep costs down….This is a very well-positioned concept. They give people an opportunity to get a good restaurant experience without having to pay too much and without a tip."

Darren Tristano
Executive Vice President
As quoted in the Detroit News, Sept. 12, 2008 edition


Barbeque is about family!

Our model has been specifically designed to be family friendly to our customers and the franchise owner. Owners are drawn to the business because of the lifestyle freedoms that are unique to our chain that opens at 11 am and closes no later than 9pm.


To be the most recognizable restaurant brand of authentic southern Barbeque in the United States.


To offer financial opportunity, freedom, and quality of life to those who desire success while offering a superior product to consumers.


Richard Ivey, the founder of Virginia Barbeque, has been a Certified Executive Chef for the past 10 years, with over 25 years of experience in the restaurant industry.

Richard's goal was to create a business that would not only create his success, but create a business that he could share to help others do the same. His desire for "success larger than life" compelled him to create the Virginia Barbeque franchise system.

Richard also wanted to create a lifestyle that worked for owners, staff and customers. Operational hours are generally from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
