FAMOUS DAVE’S BBQ
New culinary innovations, new leadership and new business model options. Now’s the time to get Famous.
Learn how Famous Dave’s Restaurant Franchise Owners are gearing up to dominate their markets with the best BBQ on the planet.
DONE LIKE NEVER BEFORE
In a BBQ love affair, Famous Dave Anderson spent 25 years researching all facets of BBQ, learning from the best Pit Masters and visiting thousands of BBQs across the country. After decades of all-night cooking sessions, he believed he had cracked the code on a BBQ menu that he knew the whole country would love. In 1994 he opened his first BBQ place in 1994. Over the next two decades, Famous Dave’s would grow into one of America’s largest BBQ chains with more than 100 units across 32 states.
After two years of preparation, improvements to the operations of our franchise business model, new culinary excellence, new leadership and an injection of industry-leading technology, we are more excited than ever to share Famous Dave’s with new communities across the country.
I am a Franchise Owner with multiple units across several franchise brands, and very few have performed as well as Famous Dave’s has for us.
