Passion. It’s the theme that I’ve found with people in the arts and food worlds (like I mentioned last week). And Chandler BBQ Co. is no exception.
“I have a passion for food, and a passion for it (BBQ),” said owner John Benson. I had a chance to speak to John the other day, and I found that it wasn’t just food he had a passion for, but for community as well.
“We are Chandler BBQ. We want to give back to Chandler, promote Chandler, and be involved with everything in Chandler,” he said, citing examples of lending a hand to the city’s high schools and other fund-raisers. Now, Chandler BBQ has a chance to give back to the arts, and they’re jumping at it.
Chandler BBQ is one of the first restaurants to sign up for Eat Your Art Out Chandler, and we couldn’t be happier. They have a great reputation in the community and have always been down to giving us a hand.
“The arts bring culture to Chandler,” said John “And it’s a great way to give back.”
I encourage you guys to try out Chandler BBQ Co sometime soon, just to make sure you like it, and then head back there with some friends on February 28th for Eat Your Art Out.
If meat so tender you can leave your teeth at home sounds good, but not what you’re craving, head back here next week and maybe you’ll like what I have to offer.
Stay hungry, my friends.
