The Hyde Park Chamber of Commerce will host a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the grand opening of The BBQ Supply Company at noon on Friday, Oct. 13.

The BBQ Supply Company, 1301 E. 53rd St., which specializes in meat assortment’s of pork ribs, pulled pork, Texas-style smoked briskets, and sausages, will occupy the space formerly held by Yusho Hyde Park, which closed in July.

According to its website, the company opened in 2010 in the West Ridge neighborhood as a small take-out BBQ Joint created by husband and wife team Jared and Amanda Leonard. They wanted to pair Amanda’s love for hospitality and event planning with Jared’s love for American BBQ.

After seven years in business, BBQ Supply Company has grown into a full-service restaurant, BBQ catering company, BBQ training center, and a full-service event production company.

The restaurant will remain open until 9 p.m. after the ribbon cutting on Oct. 13.
