Those in Bucks County looking for barbecue made “The American Way” will be able to head to Mission BBQ when it opens in Fairless Hills in July at 630 Commerce Blvd. Levittown Patch reports that Misson BBQ will open in half of the former Pier 1 Imports 8,885 sq. ft. site, which closed in early 2020 after the company filed for bankruptcy. According to Township of Falls ‘ website, an unnamed retailer will inhabit the rest of the space.
Mission BBQ Fairless Hill will have a 510 sq. ft. covered outdoor dining area on the northeast side of its building. It will also offer dine-in service, takeout, and curbside pickup. The company’s website lists 13 other Pennsylvania locations. Mission BBQ serves brisket, pulled pork, turkey, pulled chicken, sausage, salmon, and rib dishes and sandwiches as well as your favorite southern side dishes like mac-n-cheese and baked beans.
The quick-service restaurant chain opened its first location on the tenth anniversary of September 11 and, along with its community, has raised more than $10 million for charities that benefit members of the military, law enforcement, and first responders. Mashed reports that the company was started by two friends, Under Armour founder Bill Kraus, who had two children serving in the military, and Outback Steakhouse founder Steve Newton.
“Ten years after our world changed forever, in some small way, we wanted to change it back. As the founders of MISSION BBQ, we strive every day to remind everyone what makes Our Country great—its heroes,” the company’s website reads. “Who are we? Two friends passionate about BBQ, patriotic for Our Country, and who believe in running a business with meaning and purpose. We believe there is nothing more American than BBQ. And nobody more American than the brave men and women who have sworn to protect and serve Our Communities and Our Country.”
