Read below to learn about the advantages of a family-owned restaurant, and be sure to stop by Big R’s BBQ in Joplin for some tasty food!

Creates Relationships Within the Community

One of the biggest distinctions between a family-owned restaurant and a chain restaurant is that both the owners and the employees of the family-owned business are made up of a mixture of relatives and employees who live in the community in which they work. This means that employees typically stay at a family-run restaurant far longer than another establishment. They also go the extra mile to create a warm, friendly environment. The length of time they spend working at the restaurant allows the staff the opportunity to get to know their regulars and develop a relationship with their community. 

Warm and Inviting Atmosphere

Since they are not a corporate chain, family-run restaurants can decorate their establishment with items that display a more personal relationship with the restaurant. From art pieces and warm lighting fixtures to the unique architecture and cool signage, everything is chosen specifically to create that homey atmosphere that customers appreciate. One of the best aspects of eating out at a local restaurant is the ability to feel as comfortable and relaxed as if you were at home, and that is how we want you to feel when you join us at Big R’s BBQ in Joplin. 

Restaurant Profits Benefit the Community

When you eat a chain restaurant, the profits go somewhere else other than the community. Typically speaking, those profits will never come back to benefit your town, which is why eating at a local restaurant is always a great choice. When you eat locally, the profits stay within the community, which benefits both the town and the restaurant, evolving into a mutually fruitful relationship! Big R’s BBQ loves our Joplin customers, and we hope that you experience one of the best local BBQ places when you visit us for a meal.

When you care about your community, you want to make the choices that will benefit it the most. Stop by Big R’s BBQ in Joplin today and discover the best local BBQ in the four-state area!
