"This has just been an incredible year so far," stated Poff, the President of OBC. He continued, "To even be mentioned in the same breath as some of these other outstanding companies is truly an honor. We are so fortunate to receive this type  of recognition and its a true testament to not only our team, who have put in so much hard work and effort, but to our communities as well. We have the most incredibly loyal fans and customers and cant even begin to thank them enough for all of the love and support they've given us on this journey."

The Oregon Barbecue Company currently has two restaurant locations thus far with plans of opening up a 3rd location in Salem this year. "We are extremely excited about opening up in the Salem community," shared Adam Cluver, the COO for the Oregon BBQ Company. "We feel like our style of business and customer centric values will be a great fit in the Salem area." He continued, "We are very eager to give the great people of Salem the true Oregon BBQ Experience and look forward to them calling OBC... Family." When asked about a timeline for the much awaited opening in Salem the owners stated that they have been looking for the correct location for many months. "A Salem location has been in the plans for quite some time now," stated Cluver, "but we want to make sure we do it right.
