As It Turns Out, Pigs Can Fly!
Owners Brian and Kendra Choy met in 2006 while working together at Old Chicago. After getting married in 2008, while still in the service industry, they grew tired of working for other people and decided to open their own restaurant. They have a combined 20 years experience and have worked in every style of restaurant across the board from Mexican, to Italian, to Steakhouses, and even other BBQ restaurants. From busing tables, to cook, to bar tending and managing, they have done it all!
When the opportunity arose in 2009 to open a restaurant of their own, BBQ was where their hearts were at. They quit their jobs "Working For The Man" and began the journey down the When Pigs Fly road. There doubters, sure, but they didn't let that keep them down. One person even said that they wouldn't make it past their first year unless "Pigs Fly"......so the name took root.....and in October of 2010 The doors swung open and have been open every day since then!
Brian & Kendra have always wanted to run a business that was very family focused and they continue to uphold that motto to this day. Their staff is always treated like family and are continually included and appreciated in all of their sacrifice in efforts to help maintain this dream. From staff outings to Table Rock Lake, movie nights, Royals games, family dinners out at other local restaurants, we believe in honoring our staff and all of their efforts and that will never change!
Serving our community has always been at the forefront of running our business. We firmly believe in giving back to the community that has supported us from the beginning. We also run our business with our Christian faith and values. Giving back, kindness, generosity and service are values that we try to show everyone that walks in our front doors. We always want the name "When Pigs Fly BBQ" to be associated with those values. From providing school supplies to less fortunate students, raising canned good donations for local food pantries, donating holiday meals to local second chance houses and more, we appreciate the generosity of our customers to help make that possible!
