  • The Brand: from Mighty Quinn’s franchise site — Mighty Quinn’s Barbeque was founded in 2011 with the belief that great barbeque should be more available in New York City which has one of the most diverse culinary offerings in the world. Co-founders Christos Gourmos, Micha Magid and Hugh Mangum set out to change this and have now grown the brand to 10 locations including a restaurant in the iconic Yankee Stadium and 5 locations internationally. They set out to create a brand that supported what was most important to themselves and their customers; serving all-naturally raised meats, using fresh ingredients and supporting an environment where great customer service was just as important as the food. Having set the standard in our category we’re now looking for like-minded restaurateurs and entrepreneurs to join us in growing our brand across the country. Our fast casual format allows the business to thrive as both the best BBQ restaurant in the neighborhood but also a place to grab a meal in under 10 minutes. Our phenomenal slow smoked bbq, efficient service strategy, lean labor model and scalable operating plan will allow operators to quickly expand in their markets.
