Mighty Quinn's Barbeque Info

About Mighty Quinn’s Barbeque

Mighty Quinn’s is the first authentic barbeque experience in a fast-casual setting and winner of the 2013 Zagat award for best new restaurant in New York. Defining Urban BBQ, its barbeque is the merging of two great barbecue traditions: Texas and the Carolinas. It brings together the best of both and creates something uniquely its own. The process begins with the best, all-natural meats and poultry, seasoned with perfect spice blends and then smoked with wood for many hours until the perfect harmony of smoke, flavor and time emerges.

As a brand, Mighty Quinn’s was first introduced in 2011, when co-founder and Pitmaster Hugh Mangum smoked brisket and pulled pork out of a mobile smoker hitched to his pickup truck in Williamsburg (Brooklyn). Deciding to expand beyond the mobile offering, which regularly resulted in a 40-person line that continued to grow until Mangum ran out of product, Mangum joined forces with his step-brother, Micha Magid, and Micha’s brother-in-law, Christos Gourmos, to open the first brick and mortar Mighty Quinn’s restaurant in the East Village.

Since the brand’s inception, the three partners have opened 9 corporate-owned locations, a restaurant at Yankee Stadium and five international franchised units. Now, with strong operations and a growing fan base, the brand is excited to push growth forward through franchising.

Why Mighty Quinn’s Barbeque

Mighty Quinn’s offers restaurateurs and business owners the opportunity to get in on the ground level of an emerging barbecue concept poised for rapid growth across the U.S. With the exception of Mighty Quinn’s, the Urban BBQ segment of the fast casual industry is entirely untapped, providing franchisees with ample room to expand and get ahead of the competition. The quality of Mighty Quinn’s product — combined with its fast service model — also make it something that’s completely unique in the franchising industry.

By designing a concept explicitly around scalability, Mighty Quinn’s has cracked the code for operationally efficient smoked BBQ, ultimately opening the brand up to entirely new markets for the previously niche product. With five locations currently operating outside of the U.S., Mighty Quinn’s is now actively looking for franchise partners to bring the concept to new communities nationwide.
