Both MoCo Mission BBQ Locations to Add Beer and Wine to the Menu

by MCS Staff

Mission BBQ, an American BBQ restaurant, arrived in MoCo when its Rockville restaurant opened back on 2017, taking over the Benjarong space in Rockville’s Wintergreen Plaza. Since then, Mission BBQ has opened a second MoCo location in Germantown, opening in early 2020 in the space that was formerly home to Ruby Tuesday. Both MoCo locations are now looking to add beer and wine to their menu.

Mission BBQ has a Qualification Hearing of a Class H, Beer & Wine License, On-Sale Only with Montgomery County’s ABS on Thursday, December 1st. If all goes well, the new additions to the menu could be there for the start of 2023.

Mission BBQ opened its first location in nearby Glen Burnie, Maryland. Bill Kraus and Steve Newton opened the first location on September 11, 2011, as a way to support military, police, firefighters, and first responders. They opened another Mission BBQ in Perry Hall, Maryland the following year before recording growth numbers of three new restaurants in 2013, nine in 2014 and 2015, and 17 in 2016. Growth spiked sharply post-2017, with the company planning an expansion strategy of 20 to 25 new locations a year, all privately owned and financed through M&T Bank and Goldman Sachs. The chain now has over 100 locations nationwide.
