MISSION BBQ Opens 48th Location in Harrisburg, PA
Harrisburg, PA Location to Open on Monday, April 17,2017

MISSION BBQ is opening its 48th location on Monday, April 17, 2017. This will be the 6th location in Pennsylvania for the restaurant known for its traditional American BBQ with a hefty side of patriotism.

Co-founders, Bill Kraus and Steve Newton achieved the original goal of 40 restaurants two years ahead of schedule in November 2016. The opening of this location is part of MISSION BBQ’s new expansion plans, with a targeted goal of 80 restaurants throughout the East Coast by the end of 2018.

As is tradition with the opening of every MISSION BBQ, the location in Harrisburg will host charity nights throughout the week leading up to the Grand Opening, with all sales donated to organizations chosen by local police and fire departments in the Harrisburg Community, as well as the USO.

Grand Opening Day – Open to the Public

Monday, April 17th, 12 Noon

Live rendition of the National Anthem, followed by a ribbon cutting ceremony.  Doors open immediately afterward.

Media please RSVP if interested in attending any of the events to: Linda Dotterer  pressroom@mission-bbq.com


MISSION BBQ opened its doors for business on September 11, 2011. 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. We do what we do for the love of our soldiers, firefighters, police officers, and first responders—all our loved ones in service. We set across this great land from Texas to Kansas City, the Carolinas to St. Louis…to discover the secrets of great BBQ. Every day we strive to serve you authentic BBQ made from the freshest, most delectable ingredients, and serve it to you in a patriotic dining room filled with tributes to those who’ve made Our Country great, given to us by the people who earned them. Stop by at lunchtime, and you might catch us during our daily salute to the Stars and Stripes.
